DANVERS, MA—Techkon USA, an innovation leader in high-precision color measurement solutions for the global print and packaging communities, reported that Bollin Label Systems outfitted its production facility with Techkon SpectroDens devices as well as ink formulation software.
Having already invested in Techkon products, the choice to standardize the color quality processes with the SpectroDens devices and ink formulation software was easy for Bollin Label. When asked why the company chose Techkon, Patrick Kitz, operations manager at Bollin Label Systems, stated, “Techkon provides reliable, high-quality products at an affordable price. Their equipment is set up with the press operators in mind so they can easily carry out scan measurements and get back to printing as fast as possible.”
The team at Bollin Label uses the SpectroDens to measure the ink densities on process color jobs and Delta E and CIE Lab values on spot color jobs. If the team sees that their spot color is out of specification, and that changing the anilox roll to a different BCM/linescreen does not get them closer, they use the ink formulation system to color correct their formula to get them back into specification without wasting any ink. They are thrilled with the results so far and feel the implementation of the Techkon hardware and software allows them to provide consistent, repeatable color measurements from job to job.
