Sam Swartz

Creating Color Libraries

Presenter: Sam Swartz

This is a 30-minute webinar designed to give participants step by step instructions on exactly how to create and load color libraries on the SpectroDens.

G7 Print Condition

Presenter: Ron Ellis

Being able to maintain a press calibration is as important as the initial calibration procedure itself. Today’s successful printers are able to consistently print with great repeatability. A great part of this is the ability to measure color, understand what these measurements mean, and use this information to improve your daily production. In this topic we will cover how to use measurements for process control, and how to hold and adjust the calibration of a G7 reference print condition.


The Value of Color Quality Assurance

Presenter: Director of Technical Sales

The challenge for flexographic, digital and packaging printers to produce accurate and consistent color to exacting customer’s standards has grown exponentially over time. Printing single jobs on multiple presses and print facilities presents the unique challenge of how to catch color, density and dot gain variations early in the print process. Implementing a color quality assurance process enabling printers to set and monitor the color tolerances for density, delta E and dot gain, and that provides immediate detailed feedback on how well the job is conforming to customer tolerances during production, regardless of location, is the answer.
