ChromaLT is a colour quality solution designed to improve print process efficiencies by removing the colour matching guesswork and cutting make-ready times. 

Stephen Rankin, director of product management at Techkon, said, “Pressroom colour Quality Control (QC) solutions are becoming increasingly popular with packaging printers who are being held to tighter and tighter colour matching tolerances by brand customers. However, ChromaLT is different because it offers dedicated colour QC tools for both the pressroom as well as the ink department. This ensures that ink mixed in-house or by an outside vender is color accurate before it even makes its’ way into the pressroom.”

He added, “Together, the QC tools of ChromaLT can help ink technicians and press operators work more efficiently and ultimately achieve a higher level of color accuracy and consistency in their printed products.”

The updated version of ChromaLT includes an easy set workflow to ease choosing of colour names in the job and proceed to measuring operations.

The company has also added a summary dashboard to provide an increased visibility of measurement results and recommend corrective actions for press operators.

In addition, Techkon has offered support for wireless connections to its SpectroDens instrument via an optional WiFi card which eliminates the restrictions of cabled connections to the PC. It has also integrated improved colour difference graphs to provide easier interpretations for ink technicians and press operators.
