Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

ELGIN, IL. TRICOR SYSTEMS announces today the release of their new Non-Contact Color Measuring Spectrophotometer. The unit will be on display at the PRINT 09 trade show in Chicago. TRICOR will be located in the South Hall, booth #1463C.

Tom Allen, Sales Director of TRICOR said, “our new spectrophotometer will answer the age old question of accurate color measurement of a process printed image. With such a high percentage of printing being devoted to 4-color process printing, it is imperative to measure the final image and not just the color bars. Customers and Brand Owners are becoming more and more critical of work being produced by their printers and our new device gives them the tool to measure the image seen directly by the consumer, not just the color bar.”

Allen went on to say, “our new equipment measures each and every pixel for color and in practice, we are calculating Lab color data for over 1.2 million independent reflectance curves for each and every measurement. The equipment stores standards and then calculates accurate Delta E values that are comparable to a standard spectrophotometer under a number of different illuminants. The equipment can also be used to measure reflected light, radiated sources, and transmittance.”

TRICOR is a 33-year-old company that is FDA registered and ISO certified design facility as well as being a Boeing Silver Certified Supplier. TRICOR’s customer base includes all thee branches of the military services, Lockheed Martin, General Motors, Motorola, Texas Instruments as well as many other fortune 500 companies.
