New large format spectro from Barbieri

Barbieri has announced a new spectrophotometer, the Spectro LFP qb, which appears to be an updated version of the original Spectro LFP.

The Barbieri LFP qb spectrophotometer has a removable measuring head and takes M1 measurements.

This new model supports the M1 measurement mode complete with backlighting (for transmitted light measurement).

It has a removable spectral unit, or measuring head, for spot colour measurements. It uses the latest qb technology and comprises the high-precision spectral core, three light sources for uniform illumination of the media surface from three different angles, and seven LEDs to guarantee real M1 daylight illumination pursuant to the standard.

It also has a sensing unit that features an integrated camera that allows it to automatically recognise the target, perform the measurement and then communicate the position and the photo to the RIP software for further processing.

It’s said to be easy to use, and to be twice as fast as the previous model.

Markus Barbieri, director of R&D, explained: “We want to turn our customers into top performers so that they can deliver the very best certified quality to their customers. Our Spectro LFP qb incorporates the know-how we have built up through fifteen years of collaboration with leading international bodies, regular customer feedback and experience on the market. Now we are satisfied: We can offer our customers not only solutions for existing problems but for the first time also a platform that opens up a world of new possibilities and applications.”
