Barbieri manufactures intelligent colour measurement systems for professional digital printing. At FESPA 2017, Barbieri will be showing the SpectroPad Series 2, which builds on the features of its predecessor to offer several hardware, software and usability improvements. In combination with Digital Output Control it enables the operator to quickly and easily check the output consistency prior to running a job and works directly on the printer.
