STIXO-Signage Supplies

BARBIERI electronic will showcase its Spectropad, the new portable measurement device for all professionals within digital printing including large and wide format printing, at drupa. Due to its large measurement aperture of 6mm it is able to accurately measure a wide range of different, reflective media. Banner, cardboard, textiles, canvas, PVC, Fine Art Paper, vinyl and paper are just a few of them.

The company will also showcase its range of professional spectrophotometers for digital large and wide format and industrial printing. The Spectro Swing is able to measure flexible, thin media and the Spectro LFP is for rigid and thick media. These intelligent colour measuring devices are thought to measure most different transmissive and reflective media (including textile, glass, backlit film, etc).

The Spectropad is the first measurement device with Barbieri ‘qb-technology’ inside. This new technology is based on D50 illumination and contains the next generation of highest precision spectral core. The D50 illumination used is based on LED technology by Just Normlicht. It fully matches the new measurement condition M1 introduced with the ISO standard 13655-2009 (and additionally M0 and M2). Thanks to the Barbieri ‘qb-technology’ most precision measurement results will be reached.

The touch display makes the operation and job selection a breeze – no matter whether measuring a control bar, a linearization or profiling chart or just a simple spot colour. The measurement results will immediately be displayed or sent to the computer for further processing.

With this portable measurement device, the company targets all professionals in digital printing, colour management consultants as well as technicians for printer installation. It finally allows using the well-known BARBIERI measurement quality away from the desk or at the customer site.
