Prinect Axis Control is a high performance color measurement system for packaging and commercial printing.

Setup consists exclusively of assigning the inks. And even this is only necessary if something changes. The print control strip is automatically located and recognized on the printed sheet, as is the paper white. This means that Prinect Axis Control measures every job around three minutes faster than comparable equipment.

The maintenance-free LED lighting dispenses with costly bulb changes. A strong vacuum and automatic tracking of the print control strip almost virtually eliminate measuring errors and therefore repeat measurements.

Prinect Axis Control:

  • Operation and display via the Prinect Press Center XL 3 touchscreen
  • Additional color deviation display on the Wallscreen XL
  • Measuring head with powered horizontal and vertical travel
  • Autofocus to compensate for different printing substrate thicknesses
  • Space-saving micro print control strips can be used without restriction across all formats
  • Netprofiler for colorimetric calibration


  • Fastest spectrophotometer in its class, with a measuring speed of 200 mm/sec.(7.87 in/sec.)
  • Automatic print control strip tracking, including sheets in an inclined position
  • Maintenance-free LED lighting for long service life and cost savings



Everything you always wanted to know
about color management.

Even though modern digital imaging software can automate the process of color management, certain aspects will always remain subjective. Having a deeper understanding of the principles behind color management and what choices to make helps printers achieve optimal printing results.
