The Ultimate Solution for Accurate Paper Color Color and brightness are typically the last parameters to be brought into specification at machine startup.

This saves a lot of time during start up and shade/grade change. If color deviates during production, operators can quickly re-adjust dyes and OBAs to get back on target, reducing colorant and paper waste for a more sustainable...
