Frequently Asked Questions

Can LithoFlash digitally monitor color density?

LithoFlash® Inline is designed and built to scan color bars inpress from the very beginning of your makeready and throughout the course of your job run.

Designed and developed by German engineers, it has been called a "game changer" by industry insiders. Innovative technology like this has only been available in new equipment until now.

Brands like KBA, Manroland, Heidelberg, Mitsubishi, Komori, RMGT printing presses are crafted for heavy, long-term use. With LithoFlash innovation, your existing press can compete on the same playing field as new machines. Printers have to innovate.

Based on case studies, a conservative estimate of makeready time saved 6-8 minutes, sheets of waste paper saved 150-200 sheets.

Densitometrical Measurements

What does "hands-off color control" mean?

LithoFlash uses inline measurement and control systems that make it possible to measure and control the densities of process inks and special colors. The system monitors the tone value increase, print contrast and trapping parameters. It eliminates the need for manual key adjustments.

Controls color consistently with no human intervention necessary. End result - consistent quality printing, faster runs and cost savings.
