Abstract (en)

The densitometer has an evaluation computer which stores the information on the measurement fields (4) of the printed colors in individual dosing zones (5) on a measurement strip arrangement (3). The color density values of each measurement field can be compared to those of neighboring fields.

Abstract (de)

Beschrieben wird eine Vorrichtung zum densitometrischen Ausmessen von Druckprodukten, insbesondere von auf Bogenoffsetdruckmaschinen hergestellten Druckbogen, mit einem entlang einem Messstreifen mehrerer Messfelder bewegbaren Densitometer-Messkopf, dessen Signale in einer nachgeschalteten Auswerteeinheit zu den Farbdosierzonen zuordenbaren Farbdichtewerten umrechenbar sind. Aufgabe der vorliegenden Erfindung ist es, eine derartige Einrichtung dahingehend zu erweitern, so dass eine einfache und fehlersichere Zuordnung der in den einzelnen Farbdosierzonen angeordneten Messfeldfarben möglich ist. Erfindungsgemäß gelingt dies dadurch, dass die Auswerteeinheit (7) einen Rechner umfasst, der Informationen über die Anordnung der Messfelder (4) der gedruckten Farben in den einzelnen Dosierzonen (5) gespeichert enthält und in welchem die Farbdichtewerte eines Messfeldes (4) mit den sich entsprechend dem Aufbau des Messstreifens (3) ergebenden Farbdichtewerten von benachbarten Messfeldern (4) der gleichen Farbe und Messfeldart vergleichbar sind. <IMAGE>
