  • Sydney February 25th 2020 - Colour Graphics Services, the Australian distributor for Techkon colour measuring instruments, is please to announce the availability of Techkon's ChromaLT - a 'lite'; version of the Chroma software.

    Designed for small and mid-sized packaging printers who are looking for an affordable solution that is easy to deploy in the pressroom, ChromaLT is the ultimate companion software for press-side spectrophotometers and makes matching color on press quick and easy. ChromaLT guides operators on how to get a match with either specific ink density adjustments (G7 verified) or by toning the ink when density adjustments need supplementing.

    Operators will appreciate color matching feedback that is easy to understand, actionable, and with clear Pass/Fail indications. When the job is done, the measurements are saved and a report can be generated for the quality department or the end customer, showing that colors were printed in tolerances and the job was a success. ChromaLT improves print process efficiencies by removing the color matching guesswork, cutting make-ready times, and ultimately increasing profitability.

    Features include:
