US-based colour measurement and management solution manufacturer X-Rite has expanded its eXact spectrophotometer platform with the addition of eXact Xp.
eXact Xp has been designed to support the measurement modes M0, M1, and M2. It helps package printers and converters measure colour with higher precision on film substrates, including lamination materials and base structures.
The solution also incorporates features supported by the other products in the eXact spectrophotometers portfolio.
X-Rite Product Marketing vice-president Chris Winczewski said: "The costs of getting colour wrong on packaging can be significant. A packaging converter that measures colour inconsistently runs the risk of customer rejections that result in time-consuming rework and waste.
"The new X-Rite eXact Xp addresses the unique challenges of working with film materials and can be used as part of an end-to-end colour management process.
"With X-Rite eXact Xp for measurement, PantoneLIVE as a repository of reliable digital colour standards and ColorCert: X-Rite Edition for statistical process control, packaging converters can deliver new levels of colour control and increased service for their clients."
Designed to meet the common measurement modes of the standard eXact on printed materials requirements, the solution is supported with existing eXact Family software and applications.
