Densitometer

Available in both eXact and eXact Xp, the Basic model is an economical option that provides basic features for print quality control and makes for an easy-to-use pressroom solution for makeready and production processes.

Basic Isn’t So Basic

For press operators, that need a simple device for color control at the press, the eXact Basic densitometer is the answer. It is an entry-level densitometer designed specifically for CMYK jobs, enabling you to achieve and maintain accurate color throughout the run. Without even pressing a button, you will get the Density and Tone Value measurements you need to make the right ink key adjustments at the press. Replace visual trial and error with fact-based color control that shortens make ready times and helps you achieve a new level of color consistency.
 
The eXact Basic is also available in a Xp model, that is specifically designed to solve the unique challenges of measuring flexible films.

Benefits:

  • Economical: This entry-level eXact allows users to gather and provide accurate densitometric results in appropriate stages of the workflow. 
  • Efficient: Automatically detect color and patch type, providing quick and clear measurements.
  • Precise: Integrated white calibration ensures the highest accuracy and consistency with other instruments – all the time.
  • Expandable: As requirements for your organization change, eXact Basic may be upgraded by password to any higher end model, including the option to add the scan feature.
