GRIPdigital Digital MicroScope Melds Conventional, Stochastic Screen Data

Press release from the issuing company

LaGrange, IL, November 2003— The TECHKON DMS910 Digital MicroScope - distributed exclusively in North America by GRIPdigital - is the only plate calibration instrument available which can simultaneously process conventional and stochastic screen data. This unique product characteristic makes the DMS910 especially valuable as a tool to analyze plate data in hybrid workflows, while it is equally useful in either conventional or stochastic workflows. In discussing the features of the TECHKON DMS910 Digital Microscope, GRIPdigital president Greg Imhoff commented, “The TECHKON DMS910 Digital MicroScope is twice as accurate as any other plateroom calibration device available to printers. The technology used in the instrument is configured just like that in the laboratory planimeters used by plate manufacturers to determine the characteristics of their plates, but in a portable device. Perhaps more important, the on-board software permits instant detailed visual analysis of any conventional, stochastic, or hybrid workflow.” The GRIPdigital TECHKON DMS910 Digital Microscope incorporates renowned German optics with high-resolution digital color camera technology, and comes complete with all software necessary to quickly preview and record the plate values being read. Halftone image measurement is displayed in both inch and metric values, and the screen angle is automatically displayed. TECHKON GmbH has a 20-year history of developing and commercializing the finest color measurement and quality control devices available. The Digital MicroScope DMS 910 is a highly accurate measuring device especially for the quality control of printing plates. It is used successfully worldwide by computer-to-plate users, as well as by plate and platesetter manufacturers, as a reference instrument.
