Getting the right colors in every job!

Why is color calibration necessary?

Printheads can degrade over time, leading to Image Quality issues

How does it work?

  • The first time a color calibration is done it sets a reference
  • Every time a new calibration is done the printer tries to match that reference, keeping color consistent, in other words:

It is like taking a "picture" of the status of the printer; later on, we will try to match this "picture”

Calibration is done automatically by the printer once launched by the user. It takes around 20-30 minutes. Note that Generic Presets cannot be calibrated, please clone the generic preset for calibration.

What are the results?

Ink amounts are adjusted to ensure color consistency

Color result is slightly different Print head cyan fires differently
