Prinect Inpress Control is an inline spectrophotometer which very rapidly measures the colour density of the colour control strip every 15 prints (brunner strip). This new system ensures constant quality and more efficient production, as the press no longer needs to be stopped during the measuring process.
All Heidelberg presses are operated by highly technical Heidelberg spectral measuring equipment. The system contains spectrophotometric software that reads control elements (mini spots) on the printed sheets and immediately converts them into valuable information that can be used to make automatic adjustments.
Checking mini spots during the printing process ensures much greater reliability. This high-speed software can detect deviations in the printed colour space and take corrective measures in real time. Moreover the analysis of the mini spots is advantageous for our daily calibration of the CTP installations and printing presses as it is no longer necessary to go through the whole calibration and test process. This results not only in consistency in the quality delivered but also in more sustainable production due to the reduction in paper waste, ink consumption, electricity use and so on.
