The compact scanning devices revolutionize automatic measurements of densities and dot gains on any print control strip, color wedge or test chart. Operation is easy: The ergonomically designed instrument fits securely in your hand. Quickly glide it over the print test strip. Tracking wheels on the bottom of the device ensure a straight run.

Two different models are at your choice: The scan-densitometer RS 400 finds its application preferably in 4-color printing and the scan-spectrometer RS 800 is especially designed for measuring spot colors thanks to its high-resolution spectral engine.

The Windows software TECHKON ExPresso takes the measurement values and displays the ink-zone specific density values at a glance on a computer screen. This permits fast and precise control of printing presses, thus enabling shorter set-up times, less paper waste and high print quality.

On large-format print sheets, the device can be guided along a guiding track. This is now available in a motorized version as well. The linear track LT can be placed on any table without mounting, thus facilitating system installation even more.
