TECHKON Establishes TECHKON USA
READING, Mass.—TECHKON GmbH announced that it is bringing the “next generation of color measurement tools to town” with the establishment of TECHKON USA. This North American operation will market TECHKON’s SpectroPlate, SpectroDens, and Scanning Spectro-densitometer products. These TECHKON products provide a combination of ergonomics, speed, and accuracy for prepress companies, print houses, and print buyers worldwide.
Constructed without any moving mechanical parts, TECHKON products share a hand-friendly design that can be maneuvered over the color target and activated with a button—all in one fluid motion. All products feature TECHKON’s spectral sensors, optical system, and image processing algorithms, which provide a measurement speed of one second.
“Efficiency and productivity are where the rubber meets the road in our increasingly competitive printing industry,” commented George Adam, TECHKON USA president and former founder of Monaco Systems. “The establishment of TECHKON’s North American operation represents a significant advance in our ability to address one of the printing industry’s most pressing concerns: a rising worldwide demand for faster, easier, and more accurate measurement tools capable of boosting productivity by maximizing on-press time.”
TECHKON’s SpectroDens provides quality control at the press through the automatic measurement of densities, dot gains, and spot colors in order to ensure consistent print-to-print color, while SpectroPlate offers dot analysis and measurement of traditional or process-less printing plates.
