Techkon recently launched a completely new version of it’s ChromaQA software (version 3.0), which pairs with the SpectroDens spectro-densitometer to form a pressroom colour solution that allows packaging and commercial printers to monitor the quality of jobs on press.

Techkon explains the spectro-densitometers have settings on them for Measurement Condition (M0, M1, M2, & M3), Illuminant, Observer, Density Filter, etc. and sometimes these settings are mistakenly changed to the wrong settings. To help ensure press operators are taking colour measurements that are accurate for the job they are measuring, Techkon has introduced ColorEnsure for the new ChromaQA 3.0. As a job is created in the ChromaQA Spec module. This  defines the key colours to be monitored along with the reference or aim values for those colours and customer specific pass/fail tolerances.

Before every sample is measured, the ColorEnsure feature automatically checks the connected SpectroDens instrument to be sure that the instrument is set up exactly as specified in the job.  If the instrument is not set up properly, the operator will see the dialog box below alerting them to the situation.
