X-Rite scanning solutions automate press-side color control and are ideal for printers and converters who want to benefit from fast, accurate color. These systems not only remove the possibility of human error, they speed up make-ready and generate predictable and repeatable color results.
Scan the color bar on a typical press sheet in less than 10 seconds. IntelliTrax2 is the ideal color management solution for high-end, high-speed printing/converting operations.
Shorter runs. Faster turn times. Accurate, consistent color. In order to remain competitive, printers and packaging converters must address these market trends. Reducing make-ready time and waste, and minimizing errors and rework, are critical to profitability. Managing color by eye and/or depending on ink density measurements will not deliver against these requirements. By introducing next-generation color measurement instruments into the press-side quality control process, printers and packaging converters can assure optimum color quality, fast make-ready and reduced waste.
IntelliTrax2 links to other X-Rite IntelliTrax systems across the plant or across multiple sites, providing up-to-date centralized job information and color standards as well as exceptional inter-model agreement with the X-Rite eXact handheld spectrophotometer.
Handheld spectrophotometer used for both spot measurement and scans to better understand, control, manage and communicate color across the entire workflow, avoiding reprints and rework.
The X-Rite eXact Scan is a handheld spectrophotometer and a scanning device. It is a critical part of a complete color management ecosystem that ensures color consistency and repeatability across the entire color workflow. eXact Scan is ideal for use in offset, digital, flexo, prepress, ink room and other environments where exceptional color control is a necessity. eXact Scan is available in two models: Standard for accurate CMYK and spot color printing, and Advanced ink and quality control labs.
Integration of the patented Zebra wheel into the eXact Scan gives operators complete, untethered freedom of measurement. As the user moves the instrument, it counts stripes and calculates how far and fast the operator is moving, tracking the position along the bar. With other instruments, users must move at a reasonably repeatable speed across the whole series of patches, not too fast or slow, in order to get an accurate measurement. Integrating this X-Rite patented technology into the instrument is a significant advance in accuracy and productivity.
X-Rite eXact Scan was the recipient of the prestigious 2015 InterTech Award for Technical Excellence. When combined with eXact DataMeasure or other software, almost any color bar can be scanned. Only the patch size and the number of patches is required. The software does not need any other information, such as colors of the patches, color differences between the patches or separation bars between the patches. In addition, it can be configured with customized menus by user. All of these capabilities make the X-Rite eXact Scan the must-have handheld color measurement instrument for the printing and packaging industries.
X-Rite eXact Scan supports third-party closed-loop press-side solutions that improve on-press color control, reduce makeready time and waste, and significantly improve color consistency.
The i1iSis 2 and i1iSis 2 XL automated chart readers are the ideal instruments to speed up and automate printer profile creation, now supporting M1 measurement standards.
Your time is valuable. Do you create more than two profiles per week or frequently calibrate your digital presses? Then the i1iSis 2 spectrophotometer with M-Series measurement illumination conditions will improve both your productivity and the quality of your print production. This automated chart reader, built on award-winning i1 spectral technology, reads up to 2,500 patches printed on a single A3 page in just 10 minutes!
In high production environments such as photo processing, large format, fine art and high-speed digital printing, frequent measurement of color test charts to keep color management profiles up to date is a must. With the i1iSis 2, this task no longer need be labor-intensive. Simply print the A4 test chart, read it into the i1iSis 2 in to process 1,500 patches in just 8 minutes, and check results. It’s that easy.
The i1iSis 2 is compliant with the latest ISO standards for M-Series measurement illumination conditions, including:
The i1iSis 2 improves the speed and accuracy of profiling and calibration and helps operators address color drift before it is visible to the human eye. You can even average more than one target and quickly analyze a high volume of charts. Need a larger chart size? Learn about the i1iSis 2 XL A3 chart reader. With the i1iSis 2, spend less time profiling and more time ensuring happy customers!

EasyTrax is a semi-automated color scanning system for ensuring accurate color and standards compliance, including the ability to take a scan or spot measurement anywhere on the sheet.
EasyTrax is X-Rite’s semi-automated color scanning system, designed to be used press-side in offset printing operations using 29” (74cm) or 40” (102cm) presses. It comes preassembled on a measurement board for a fast start and can be adapted to almost any press console. This standards-compliant system includes the black backing required for ISO certified operations and can take scan or spot measurements anywhere on the sheet, making it the perfect press-side solution for color control.
EasyTrax Density measures ink density with density data being displayed against set targets to easily determine required ink zone changes, while EasyTrax Spectral adds the ability to capture both density and spectral data in a single scan. Both operate at a speed of 150mm/second. EasyTrax helps operators reduce makeready time, monitor production for color consistency, and minimize waste and rework.
EasyTrax Spectral enables perfecting presses to support up to 8 ink units with the advanced ISO/G7 module, whether using a CMYK, Multi-Color or N-Color workflow. It is the ideal solution for offset printing operations wishing to take standardization and automation to the next level.
X-Rite i1iO Automated Scanning Table enables hands-free test chart reading for automated color profiling on a variety of substrates with reduced risk of color measurement errors.
Manually reading test charts for profiling or color validation can be time-consuming. Now you can automate your color workflow and extend the value of your i1Pro. The i1iO is a robotic, automatic chart reading system that is designed to work with all i1Pro devices.
