Components of a Closed-Loop Color Control System and How They Work Their Magic

Adding a Closed-Loop Color Control System is often the best and most effective way to breath new life into an older offset press.  The result is automation which decreases job make-ready times for instant time and material savings but it’s also the “great equalizer” too, which increases the color consistency across individual press runs, over time, and even across multiple presses or different shifts of press operators.  However, to better understand how the closed-loop system…

Pressroom Automation and the Difference Between Open and Closed Loop

Automated Measuring Systems Scans instead of individual measurements Scanning spectrodensitometers measure the entire ink control strip thus recording all ink zones in one single measuring operation. Since the printer no longer has to select arbitrary ink zones, he does not miss the problematic ink zones either. He can now be certain that all possible inking fluctuations are detected. In this way, therefore, automation at the same time eliminates all subjective influences. As in handheld instruments,…
