Offset Plate Measurement Device & Digital Microscope
Available in 3 Versions:
Start: for dot percentage measurements on all popular types of printing plates,film and CMYK print.
Expert: adds the recording of complete transfer curves and the possibility to analyze geometric objects within the device.
All-Vision: same functions as the Expert version but works with processless, low-contrast plates.
The measurement of the right dot transfer on offset printing plates is a key segment of comprehensive process control in the printing industry. At present, plate measurement technology based on microscopic image capture and processing is the established standard. TECHKON SpectroPlate unifies all advantages of this modern measurement technology in a compact, hand-held instrument.
The extraordinary high measurement accuracy of SpectroPlate is determined by the quality of the optical system and the performance of the image processing algorithms. Thanks to the excellent image capture quality and the ingenious graphic calculations, SpectroPlate can read precisely any screen size and screen technology: FM, AM or Hybrid screen. The spectrally white illumination and dynamic color evaluation permits reading all kinds of plate types and coated surfaces. But it is not only plate reading where SpectroPlate shows its strengths. This multifunctional device expertly handles dot measurement on film as well as on printed paper in CMYK-print.
SpectroPlate lets you see things normally hidden to the human eye. It shows the raster dots on a film or a printing plate in large magnification on the device display or, optionally, on your computer screen. It lets you visually judge printing plates and discover any soiling or exposure errors now that the structure of the dots is visible.
A specific strength is the image transfer of uncompressed high-resolution files to the PC where they can be stored, edited or sent over the Internet. Geometric sizes of dots or lines can be retrieved in micrometer- or mils- dimensions.
All devices are factory-calibrated to the official reference fogra Measuring Bar FMB resulting in high long-term absolute accuracy and an excellent inter-instrument agreement. Additionally, time-consuming calibration procedures prior to measurements are obsolete.
Every device comes with:
Charging Console with built-in white standard
AC Adapter with universal plugs
Padded Carrying Case
CD with SpectroPlate Connect Software
Manual with ISO 9000 Certificate
