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.

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


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.

Why is Accurate Color
Mission Critical?

Press Downtime

Running new jobs can require long press make-readies which can reduce overall profitability.

The Consumer Eye

The human eye can identify even slight differences in color down to ∆E of 2, enough to affect consumer behavior.

Wasted Materials

Missed color targets leads to wasted material and continuously decreasing margins.

Client Rejections & Reprints

When color is even slighty off, clients can reject shipments which make for costly mistakes and jeopardize the relationship.

Central Ink Corporation has used several of Techkon's instruments optimizing our customers pressroom's over the last decade. We are always pleased with the functionality and reliability. Most importantly, when we have any questions about the SpectroDens for example or want to use software to better quantify data they are available.

“This past year we decided it was time to upgrade our spectro-densitometers and color software, so we contacted several known companies in the industry. We found that Techkon was very responsive to our needs and was able to provide us with quality instruments and color validation software, that met our needs. I would recommend anyone looking to up their game in color control and validation to contact Techkon.”

“We just bought 3 of the Techkon SpectroDens, all the bells and whistles. Love them, why we waited this long I have no idea. Easy to use and amazingly…a fully charged battery last more than 10 minutes and you can use them not plugged up to a power cord!! WOW!! Great customer service too, they will actually call you back… Try one if you guys get a chance.”

“We were exposed to the SpectroDens last summer from one of our coworkers from Germany. We were floored. I’ve been using one in the field, as well as our color lead in Kennesaw. So far I really like it. It's just amazingly fast. I use it to do G7 Gray Balance Optimizations and I can either read the minispots in spot or scan mode. I’ve shown it to a few of our press instructors and they’ve been very impressed. I like the small footprint too, it also reads our 3mm Inpress bars quickly.”

“I have started to use your device – it is AMAZING. There is a clear working download of the software install from the web site (or included CD). The Spectro Connect software shows the device screen and allows a direct snapshot, that is so useful. I can populate directly into my Excel and add M1/M2 to each data field so that I can be sure of the measurement mode I used to capture the data.”
