Optimal Printing with Sustainable Profitability
Densitometry is the measuring technique applied most often for color control in the printing industry, because of the direct dependence between the density and the thickness of the ink film. Especially the inline control at highest printing speeds and the measurement of the whole color control bar with every revolution offer new fields of process automation in offset printing. ELPRINT deCon as a state-ofthe- art measuring system offers all these features. A special CMYK camera system is mounted on a wear-free stepping motor driven traverse bar, moving at highest speeds. ELPRINT deCon scans all measuring fields of the whole color control bar step by step. A more effective version of ELPRINT deCon is the configuration as MultiHead, an overlapping array of several CMYK cameras to provide the full speed potential of measuring the color density of the whole color control strip across the full webwidth with every rotation - especially during the machine set-up.
