Print, measure, and match. Done.

The all-in-one SpectroDens 4 spectrodensitometer (combined color spectrophotometer and color densitometer) will help you control your process, spot, Pantone® or other critical brandcolors by measuring solid ink density, % dot area, CIE Lab, deltaE, and more.

Visible Aperture.
Zero Guesswork.

A patented, side-mounted aperture, allows the operator to more easily position the optics over the desired color measurement location while providing visual confirmation.

Spot & Scan.
All in One.

Four precisely aligned wheels on the underside allow the SpectroDens to roll effortlessly between measurement locations for either spot measurements or color bar scanning.

Accuracy where it matters most.

ISO & G7

The SpectroDens 4 fulfills M0, M1, M2, M3 color measurement conditions in accordance to ISO 13655 and supports ISO and G7® methodologies.

NIST Certified

National Institute of Standards & Technology, calibrations ensure the measurement accuracy and agreement with other instrument manufacturers.

UHD Spectral Sensor

Samples color in approximately 3nm increments (from 400-700nm) providing a higher resolution spectral characterization when compared to other color measurement devices

Advanced Features

The SpectroDens offers Press Operators & Ink Technicians precision color control.

Best Color Match

InkCheck™ feature helps press operators minimize color differences (deltaE’s) by providing specific density adjustments to achieve best possible color match

Wireless Connectivity

The SpectroDens uses Wi-Fi to connect with your PC for faster communication speeds, enhanced security, and ultimate network connectivity and range

Achive G7 Compliance

GrayGuide™ feature displays G7 pass/fail indication and specific CMYK density adjustments to obtain grayscale values according to G7 specification

Quick Measurement of
Process & Spot Colors

The all-in-one SpectroDens 4 helps you control your process, spot, Pantone® & other critical brand colors by measuring solid ink density, % dot area, CIE Lab, deltaE, and more.

Eric Patterson

Vice President of Technology,

ColorTree Group, Inc.

The SpectroDens has given our press operators a fast and convenient way to measure gray balance. This device has enabled us to make quick adjustments on press and provide the color repeatability our customers expect and deserve.

Ron Ellis

Owner,

Ron Ellis Consulting LLC

The SpectroDens4 has a number of new features that make it especially easy to use. The strip mode works fast and flawlessly, just using the wheels on the device and requiring no additional hardware or software.

Steven Surbrook

Owner

Quikset Corporation

I typically take 10,000-15,000 density measurements with this device during every installation I make of my system – and it really saves me time and energy. Many of the printers then order from you.
