Simple and effective quality control for proofs, press sheets, digital and conventional print systems

Simple and effective quality control is essential for delivering optimal print results and consistent quality. Ideally, the system informs the user, whenever a device or process deviates from a set standard and requires optimization or user intervention.

CERTIFIED enables you to easily measure and evaluate color wedges on any proof or press sheet. Color wedges for commonly used standards such as SWOP, GRACoL, 3DAP, FOGRA are included and custom color wedges can be added easily.

To verify spot colors, users can create their own color set by selecting spot colors from a library or entering its LAB values. CERTIFIED measurement results can be printed on a self-adhesive label to be put on the proof or as a detailed report.

The intelligent tool provides company-wide overviews, detailed reports, and trend analyses - all with just a few clicks. Clear facts help you to avoid any discussions about color problems.

The web-based software can be easily integrated into existing infrastructures and workflows. It is extremely effective and flexible and at the same time easy to use thanks to its intuitive wizard-based user interface.

Optionally, it connects to the EVALUATE web server, to which the measurement results of all monitored devices are automatically saved. The data can be accessed and evaluated from anywhere in the world via a web browser.

Green and lean
  • Reduce variation in quality by identifying problems and root causes. Understanding raw materials variation is critical to efficient production.
  • Reduces waste by identifying problems at their source. Identify incorrect proofs and plates before they enter the press room.
  • By using CERTIFIED for color matching to ISO or other standards as well as for plate performance monitoring, you can ensure that colors are accurate before proofs are sent, eliminating the
    guesswork from remote proofing and reducing shipping costs.
