High-precision color measurement specialist Techkon has announced a strategic OEM partnership with Screen Americas, headquartered in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. Screen’s product portfolio includes Truepress inkjet printers and presses, PlateRite thermal platesetters and PDF/JDF-based workflow solutions for computer-to-plate and print-on-demand.

Screen Americas will now be including the Techkon SpectroDens Premium handheld spectrophotomer as a core component of each new customer’s Equios color management workflow solution.  This will be a standard offering for all configurations of the press series including the TPJ 520ZZ, TPJ 520NX, and TPJ 520HD.

In the Screen color eco-system, the SpectroDens will play an integral role in capturing color measurements to allow for color calibration of the press and to ensure color consistency of the Truepress across a variety of print media.

The Truepress Jet520 series is targeted at the direct mail, transactional, commercial print and book printing markets.

The SpectroDens measurement head allows a single spot measurement approximately every second while the patented, side-aperture design allows the operator to easily position the optics over the desired measurement location.  The spectral engine complies with ISO-13655 requirements and enables spectral sampling in 10 nm intervals from 400 nm to 700 nm for accurate M0, M1, M2, & M3 measurements.  An encoder allows for scanning of color bars up to 40-inches in length in only 10 seconds without the need for additional accessories.
