EFI Unveils Fiery Profiling Spectrophotometer
September 1, 2015 By PrintAction Staff
EFI is introducing a new colour-chart-reading spectrophotometer designed to automate the press profiling process in Fiery-driven production printing. The new EFI ES-6000 spectrophotomer is integrated into EFI Fiery digital front-end workflows, allowing print professionals to update profiles and verify colour for output on toner presses.
EFI explains the ES-6000 can read thousands of colour patches in minutes and accommodates M0, M1 and M2 measurement illumination conditions, which better allow for managing the complexities of measuring optically brightened substrates. “Making sure that press profiles are up to date and digital presses are properly calibrated can be a challenge,” said John Henze, VP of Marketing, EFI Fiery. The company states its new spectrophotometer can read up to 2,500 patches on a single A3/tabloid sheet in just 10 minutes.
The ES-6000 spectrophotometer, developed through EFI’s relationship with X-Rite, is specifically integrated with the EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite. Using the spectrophotomer on a print shop’s local access network provides for colour management of multiple print engines in a single shop location.
Multiple people can use Fiery Color Profiler Suite to print colour patch pages that can be fed into the ES-6000 for automated measurement. The ES-6000 then communicates results back to the correct user for completion of the colour management or verification process.
