Three Devices in One

The new Dens is a color reflection densitometer for CMYK color prints, a film transmission densitometer and a high-precision illuminated magnifying glass for the visual control of printing results.

Easy To Use

The Dens, easily operated by only three buttons, indicates densities, dot area and gray balance clearly legible on a large color display. Automatic color and gray balance detection speeds up the measuring.

Built To Last

To meet the demands of a printing rooms harsh environment, the compact casing of the DENS is made of solid aluminum and is therefore very robust.


PressLink software calculates ink coverage from pre-press data and converts it to ink key preset data.  This information is passed to the press console enabling precise ink fountain presetting.  The result is less waste and faster make-ready.

  • PressLINK comes with a interface box that connects with presses from different manufacturers.
  • The software supports common pre-press technologies.
  • Ink coverage can be calculated from CIP3/4, or if this option is not available, from other RIP formats.
  • Ink presets are optimized by the software based on press characteristics calculated from actual data.
  • The system stores jobs and press characteristics for later use.
  • It is possible to support more than one press from a single interface box.



PressLINK gives operators quality control feedback during the run and can automatically adjust the ink keys to keep the colors on target during the press run. The SpectroDRIVE scanning spectrophotometer included with PressLINK can scan color bars on a 40” press sheet in 8 seconds. Current color values and trends are shown on the screen. Ink fountain adjustments are calculated by the software and sent to the press console. The console adjusts ink keys so that required density values are maintained for the entire press run. This enables match to reference sheet. The system also enables better adherence to GRACoL G7 and other printing standards. Clients get the highest level of color consistency.

The press interface hardware secures communication with the press console. There are different press connection solutions for different press consoles. The same interface enables prepress to press as well as spectrophotometer to press connectivity. The system is operated from touchscreen or keyboard.

Presses supported include Heidelberg, MAN Roland, Mitsubishi, KBA, Komori, Sakurai, Ryobi, Shinohara, Muller Martini, Adast, Polly and others. Over 1000 systems installed globally in last 5 years.
