Tip for users of Prinect color measurement systems
The usage of the print control strips (with Prinect Image Control also the Mini Spots) requires corresponding files (measuring masks) in a Prinect color measurement system. In case that such a file corresponding to your new downloaded element does not exist, please contact your local Heidelberg service. Name your color measurement system, the current software version and the required print control strip or Mini Spot. You will then be advised how to obtain the corresponding file.
No adequate print control strip found?
The Prinect print control strips are optimized for the use with Heidelberg Speedmaster presses in combination with the Prinect color measurement systems. The EPS and PDF format allow for a high compatibility with the most common workflows. However, because of the variety of application programs Heidelberg cannot guarantee for an error-free application with third party systems. Furthermore you will find control elements (Mini Spots) for checking the dot gain (TVI), the process control in accordance to ISO 12647-2 or G7 and proofing purposes. These elements can only be measured with a handheld measuring device or commonly used with Prinect Image Control. In case you cannot find older versions of the print control elements here, please contact your local Heidelberg subsidiary or dealer.
