AVT, which specializes in developing press control and inspection systems, has signed a licensing agreement with X-Rite to certify that AVT’s SpectraLab II Color Measurement System is compliant with X-Rite’s XRGA Standard.
The XRGA standard was designed to reduce discrepancies between different colour measurement systems including where equipment from different vendors is used.
SpectraLab II is AVT’s latest generation of in-line spectral measurement and can keep up with high speeds. It’s capable of handling most graphics applications, including various label substrates, paper, cartons, and transparent flexible packaging. It shows color results and trends throughout runs and delivers real-time alerts to third-party reporting systems when colors shift out of tolerance. The system allows for seamless connectivity to existing workflows and color databases, and eliminates the need for press stops and manual measurements. It’s compatible with most colour measurement tools, including X-Rite’s handheld monitoring devices.
Alan Then, general manager of AVT Color Solutions, commented: “X-Rite’s highly respected XRGA standard provides an invaluable third-party endorsement to printers considering AVT’s SpectraLab II advanced color measurement system.”
