The quality control tools can be set to industry standards

Xeikon’s colour management expert Bruce Dransfield said, “Historically colour management software has needed an expert to deliver results and this takes time. Xeikon has developed its XCS Pro 2.0 as a ‘no waste’ ‘no expert’, fully automated colour system. Xeikon now has the first digital dry toner, web press solution which embraces self-fixing colour control, quality control and ICC profiling plus Pantone/brand colour generation to meet all industry standards. Xeikon has built its new colour management system’s architecture to enable it to remotely analyse, target and fix any colour problem in minutes. Xeikon’s cloud-based analytical tools can diagnose any colour issue and the issue is sorted with no delays which adds to significant time savings in production.”

The quality control tools can be set to industry standards — either theoretical, ‘process corrected’ or ‘house’ standards and results are measured and traced using the new analytics in Xeikon’s cloud-based system. It is also possible for the operator to fix and re-verify the colour quality of the print on the fly.

Xeikon’s dry toner engines are all fitted with inline spectrophotometers to automatically make this possible during production saving on waste and rejected jobs.

Xeikon’s XCS Pro 2.0 offers printer the predictability and confidence to be able to match digital brand colours alongside the results from other processes. Printers can match spot and brand colours where Xeikon’s new colour tools remove all guess work and avoid down time by trial and error.
