Italian manufacturer Barbieri has unveiled its latest spectrophotometer, the Spectro LFP qb.
The colour management tool comprises three components. First, the Spectro LFP platform is the measuring stage with an enhanced clamping system and integrated M1 backlighting (for transmitted light measurement).
The spectral unit (measuring head) incorporates the latest qb technology and comprises what the company describes as 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.
The spectral unit has another extremely useful feature, explains Barbieri: The measuring head is removable and therefore ideal for fast and reliable spot measurement.
The third component, the sensing unit, is described by the company as an innovation in the field of professional digital printing: an integrated camera offering a range of applications never available before.
With the help of the camera, the measuring device automatically recognizes the target, performs a precision measurement and communicates the position and the photo to the RIP software for further processing.
The new system also includes switchable apertures (2, 6, 8 mm) for measuring different materials, surfaces, inks and resolutions.
“We want to turn our customers into top performers so that they can deliver the very best certified quality to their customers," commented Barbieri director of R&D Markus Barbieri.
"Our Spectro LFP qb incorporates the know-how we have built up through 15 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.”
