eXact Xp Handheld Spectrophotometer

Spectrophotometer

Available in both Standard and Advanced models, the eXact Xp is a feature-rich and easy-to-use handheld spectrophotometer specifically designed to help flexible packaging converters and ink manufacturers achieve accurate and consistent measurements on flexible films and other print and packaging substrates.

Getting Color Right on Flexible Film

As with the eXact spectrophotometer, the eXact Xp spectrophotometer is available in two configurations: Standard and Advanced. The eXact Xp Standard is designed to ensure accurate printing of both CMYK and spot colors as well as leveraging industry standards for process control. The eXact Xp Advanced is designed for ink labs and quality control labs to provide enhanced functionality of quality control features, store sample measurements for data tracking, and allow for multiple user profiles on one device.

In addition, the eXact Xp is designed specifically to help flexible packaging converters and ink manufacturers achieve accurate and consistent measurements of color while primarily measuring films and other substrates with polarized qualities.

Benefits:

  • Best in Spot Color Support
    Fully integrated Pantone spectral data, support of the PantoneLIVE color digital workflow, and ink key adjustment recommendations for spot colors and CMYK.
  • Accurate and Consistent
    The combination of the advanced spectral engine and integrated white calibration ensures the highest accuracy and consistency with other instruments – all the time.
  • Configurable
    eXact Xp allows the user to easily configure and control the instrument to the specific standards of a selected job.
  • Efficient
    Both the eXact Xp Standard and Advanced are designed to bring efficiency to your operation with the ability to perform simultaneous measurements of M0 and M2 conditions.
  • Expandable
    With a comprehensive portfolio of products, the eXact family integrates with many X-Rite solutions to ensure color consistency across the entire workflow.
