Tighten Quality Parameters While Reducing
Designed to measure 4-color process work, the Auto-Tracking
Densitometer (ATD) helps operators establish firm targets and
tolerances for an entire press run using density, dot gain, trap
and print contrast color data readings.Then ATD archives these
standards for quick and accurate set-up during reprints.
Maintain Consistent Color Using Real-Time Data
ATD continuously gathers color quality information during the
press run and displays data in real-time. It also analyzes the
data and alerts operators whenever performance falls outside
of established tolerances.
• The ATD densitometer measures an entire
color bar in just seconds and transmits data
to the ATD software. Select from industry
standard Status T, Status E, or Status I density
• The ATD software displays color data in
real time in easy-to-view graphical formats.
• Powerful software tools continuously
analyze density, dot gain, ink trap, print
contrast, hue-error and grayness.When
deviations from targets or tolerances occur,
the operator is alerted immediately.
• The ATD helps press operators make timely
color adjustments, which results in consistent
color quality and minimized waste during
the press run.The ATD also identifies the
specific ink keys that need to be adjusted.
At the end of each run, the ATD software
generates printed reports summarizing the
job and detailing color reproduction data,
color tolerances, and much more.
The ATD reduces make-ready time by
automating many steps in the process.
This means you need fewer trial-and-error
adjustments.You cut back the run-waste for
each job. And you operate much more
efficiently, which boosts profits.
The ATD also gives operators quality
control feedback.The ATD locks-in color
okay information, then displays run data to
help press operators maintain color quality
within tolerances.The ATD software saves
this color data so operators can get repeat
jobs or multiple forms up and running
