The Process Control Spectrophotometer 

Spectropad is a revolutionary color measuring and process control device. This portable, professional spectrophotometer measures a wide variety of different reflective media used in professional digital printing (including large and wide format). Thanks to its independence from a computer, it can be used also directly on the printer. Its integrated touch display enables interaction with the device and provides instant measurement results.

Application Fields

  • Process and quality control in large format digital printing
  • Measurement of linearization, profiling and custom charts on a wide variety of materials
  • Single measurements of spot colors with subsequent check for color true printing
  • Image quality evaluations (homogeneity on the print according to Fogra M-Score)

Process Control

Using SpectroPad DOC, the stability of the printing process can be instantly verified and can determine if an actual print is within specifications directly at the printer. Being wireless (battery operated and data transmission by WiFi) the control strip is measured directly on the printer, the measuring device calculates the DOC report internally and instantly displays results on the touch screen. If required, the data can be sent wirelessly to a computer to print and store report data.
In addition to process control, Barbieri provides tools to evaluate image quality in digital printing. For instance, the homogeneity of a print can be evaluated according to the Fogra M-Score.

Barbieri DOC also supports calculations according to Fogra PSD and IDEAlliance.

Image Quality.
In addition to process control, Barbieri provides tools to evaluate image quality in digital printing. For instance, the homogeneity of a print can be evaluated according to the Fogra M-Score (more information).
