application allows you controlling all PANTONE
and other special inks at reception, by measuring each ink on a piece of stock paper before
you install it on your press.
application allows you as well making a fast and clear cut diagnosis
when checking any PANTONE ink on any print. Using this application, you will find:
inks badly formulated that cannot produce the expected Lab D50 colors
whichever print density or pigment concentration is used,
inks badly formulated that can produce the expected colors when printed at
appropriate print densities, but only when D50 light is used (Problem
of metameric ink formulation),
inks properly formulated, but printed with bad densities that does not
produce the expected colors with acceptable ΔE tolerance.
above test on your own PANTONE swatch book: It will show you that you should never trust the colors you see on any
should check any sample tint your Customers supply, and you should
check any special ink you buy or you
formulate yourself BEFORE you install this ink on your press:
each ink to be controlled, SPOT_Color_Manager
displays the optimal print density to be used for minimizing the
printed color visual distance (ΔE76, ΔECMC2:1 or ΔE2000)
with its reference target color.
also checks each ink in
terms of metamerism, for full control of its formulation quality,
by forecasting accurately the best ΔE's
you will get under A, D50 and F11 illuminants when using best possible print
density correction to be applied is displayed in terms or density (Status
E-DIN, ANSI T, or I), and in terms of ink thickness or pigment
concentration correction: This allows you
specifying and checking properly your inks set for each print work.
