TECHKON to unveil new quality assurance tools

Labelexpo Europe 2019, Stand 9A27


ECHKON GmbH, a manufacturer of color measuring solutions, will unveil new tools for quality assurance in label and packaging printing at Labelexpo 2019.

The company will showcase SpectroDens spectro-densitometers with new features, especially for special inks and packaging print. The instrument connects to five TECHKON programs and is supported today by more than 20 software solutions in different color management applications.

TECHKON’s ChromaQA color quality assurance software for printing and packaging companies provides tools designed to monitor the color quality of jobs on press, reduce the number of re-makes and deliver significant savings in ink and paper by detecting color problems early in the print production process.

Similar to ChromaQA enterprise color quality solution, ChromaLT is meant mainly for small- and mid-sized packaging printers who are looking for a more affordable solution, easy to deploy in the pressroom and provides a focused feature set to get their operators up to color faster.
ChromaLT is designed to improve print process efficiencies by removing the color matching guesswork, cutting make-ready times and ultimately increasing profitability.

Colibri by Matchmycolor is a state-of-the-art ink formulation software which not only matches colors but also facilitates color communication all over the world. It is ideal for brands that need to match and specify colors across industries and for applications such as printing, plastics, paints and coatings.

TECHKON will be at Stand 9A27 at Labelexpo 2019.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
