Techkon USA Partners with APR at LabelExpo Americas 2012

Danvers, MA (September 4, 2012) TECHKON – The innovation leader in densitometers, spectrophotometers and software solutions for the global print and packaging communities will be teaming up with All Printing Resources (APR) at LabelExpo Americas in Booth #536 on September 11-13 in Chicago, Illinois.

“We are extremely excited to partner with APR during Label Expo” states George Adam, President of Techkon USA. “All Printing Resources brings a unique expertise in the Flexo marketplace particularly well suited to our focus on providing the very best in instrumentation and solutions for the packaging industry.”

Techkon USA will be showcasing their newest products just released as well as their traditional line of spectro-densitometers in the APR Booth at this event. Visitors will see the SpectroEdge®, an inline spectrophotometer designed for flexographic presses that measures and maintains accurate color at production speeds of up to 1000 ft/min, ChromaQA®, its new cloud-based color quality assurance software, and the new SpectroDens Premium complete with a high resolution color display.

Based on Techkon’s leading-edge color measurement technology, SpectroEdge marks a turning point in the flexographic print markets. Installed on a mechanical arm that traverses the web SpectroEdge reads color samples either at preset intervals or frequencies, or via a hard-wired signal initiated by the printing press operator. SpectroEdge converts the raw data, instantly interpreting the color values sent to the host computer to indicate needed press adjustments. This inline spectrophotometer will dramatically impact the flexographic print marketplace by significantly reducing set-up time, catching unacceptable color variations as they happen and increasing overall press run efficiencies to deliver previously unattainable levels of color quality.

Sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, Techkon ChromaQA is a powerful set of tools designed to provide both direct and remote access to pressroom color data, allowing print quality control managers to monitor color quality in real-time on press, locally or remotely. It empowers digital, flexographic, and packaging press operators to make timely, critical adjustments on press, substantially increasing quality and profitability by catching problems early in the print production process.
