ColorPilot systems - the fastest, most efficient way to measure color
ColorPilot is the well-proven high end density and colorimetry measurement and control solution from Manroland Sheetfed.
Color measurement systems are vital to standardized printing processes. The faster they work, the more you save in time and cost. The ColorPilot family from Manroland Sheetfed offers you the fastest color management system available.
The ColorPilot product range is so efficient, the entire measuring process takes place in only a few seconds, measuring densitometrical and colorimetrical values in a single pass.
The sheet is fixed with a vacuum system which enables a secure fixation even of very thin and thick materials. Due to the tilt correction within the measuring head it is possible to use the smallest 4 mm control strips. Using high end materials (Zeiss spectal module, glass interference filters, metal components instead of plastic), the system is very robust, reliable and delivers highly precise measuring data. A separate module for densitometric and spectral measurement ensures a simultaneous and standard-conform measurement.
Measures and controls color – non-stop – without the need to pull sheets. This saves on time and waste and improves color stability offering complete documentation of the production run. Using a high-resolution CCD sensor, the InlineColorPilot measures the complete print control strip within three sheets. The RGB flash illumination corresponds with the color of the filters that are used for normal densitometrical measurements.
When Installed, on what is considered to be the world's fastest large-format press, the InlineColorPilot consistently produces high-quality print. Benefits include reduced makeready times, reliable measurement, less waste sheets, lower energy costs, no ink-water balance disturbance and production run logging.
