Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) - At INFOFLEX 2023, April 17-18, in Columbus, Ohio, X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC, will showcase a connected ecosystem of color measurement solutions to transform the flexographic and packaging color workflow process. Attendees will experience firsthand how the next-generation eXact™ 2 handheld spectrophotometer connects to a software ecosystem, including InkFormulation Software and ColorCert® Suite, to bring the print and packaging workflow together in one device for improved quality control and productivity. In addition, X-Rite will chair a session at INFOFLEX on the value of color measurement with leading flexographic printers.
“Packaging printers that work with different substrates need color management solutions that reduce the need for multiple devices, screens, and workstations in a busy prepress, ink room, and on the production floor,” said Jon-Michael McCartney, Director Print and Packaging, X-Rite. “The new eXact 2 is designed to streamline the color workflow by combining imaging technology, spectral engine, scanning, and advanced software integrations in one device.”
At INFOFLEX in booth #231, X-Rite will feature:
eXact 2 non-contact, handheld spectrophotometer measures color across various substrates, including flexible film and paper, in a single device. With easy-to-use features such as the touch-screen interface, patented Mantis™ video targeting technology, onboard digital color standards, quality control tools, and fleet management, print operators can verify customer requirements two times faster and with more confidence.
ColorCert Suite provides printers an overall view of print quality and color performance in a single number score to confirm compliance with brand specifications.
InkFormulation Software delivers fast, accurate, consistent ink formulation, formula creation, storage, approval, and retrieval for offset, flexo, gravure, and screen-printing inks.
X-Rite Link dashboard allows converters to verify the status of one or a fleet of eXact 2 devices, configure and distribute updates and libraries, and more.
PantoneLIVE™ digital color ecosystem enables brand owners, designers, and printers to feel confident in selecting color standards that are achievable in production.
i1Pro 3 Plus color profiling device reduces color appearance variability allowing printers to create ICC profiles for almost any substrate, including paper, film, textiles, vinyl, and other materials, and calibrate print production devices for the highest level of color accuracy.
