Which eXact is Right for You
With new features like an onboard high-resolution camera, integrated scanning wheels, and software connectivity, this device is going to be a game-changer for printers, converters, and ink suppliers.
Available in three models, you might be wondering which eXact 2 from X-Rite Pantone (Booth N729) is right for you. Read on to learn more.
eXact 2 for Commercial Print and Packaging Converters
With eXact 2, you can measure paper and flexible film substrates with a single device. It offers built-in scanning and an intuitive design to get to make-ready color in less time, saving wasted substrate and ink while maximizing press output across a shift.
With eXact 2, you can meet quality standards 17% faster than alternative solutions, and make even the most color-critical customers happy. This device is equipped with a “two-taps or less” touch-screen interface and an onboard high-resolution camera that powers Mantis video targeting technology and the unique Digital Loupe feature. That means you can zoom in on the measurement area, inspect patches, analyze dot gain, read plates, and even save an image of a color measurement for compliance.
eXact 2 comes with Pantone Master libraries and direct access to the dependent libraries via PantoneLIVE on the device. With this onboard functionality, you can use thousands of the latest standards to meet customer color needs across a large variety of paper, film, and paperboard substrates, and stay on top of color trends.
eXact 2 also offers the best formulation and quality control tools and reporting capabilities. With ColorCert software integration, ColorCert job results are displayed instantly on the device, minimizing the need to go to another computer and helping you hit color standards fast.
Wi-Fi connectivity with X-Rite Link is a game-changer for busy pressrooms that need to manage a fleet of devices. This modern dashboard provides real-time insight into device status, and ensures all devices are NetProfiled and ready to go with the latest firmware.
eXact 2 for Ink Suppliers
eXact 2 is a handheld measurement solution that is tailored to your unique needs so you can clearly communicate color data to printers and converters and formulate fast and accurate recipes.
The non-contact measurement area prevents wet ink contamination and the need to re-measure. With a switchable polarization filter, you can formulate and proof inks for a wider variety of substrates, including flexible film, with one single device. eXact 2 simultaneously measures all measurement conditions described in ISO 13655:2017: M0, UV included M1 (methods 1 & 2), D50; M2, UV excluded; M3 - Polarization. That means you can use the same model for all your facilities, regardless of substrate, and move an eXact 2 between facilities without worrying if it is the right type of device.
Close integration with X-Rite’s InkFormulation Software accelerates color development through better match performance and reduced proofing. With unique formulation capabilities, you can formulate accurate ink color the first time to save time and money and use leftover inks and press returns to reduce overall ink inventories.
