Handy colour measuring device for flexographic and offset printing

The CITO colour measuring device, the DenCITOmeter, is a smart measuring device for additional use in the machine room. The colorimeter delivers fast and precise results, and its operation is intuitive and child’s play.

With the colour measuring device simple, precise and reliable measurements of density, dot gain value, absolute raster values and grey balance are possible for quality control.

Matched precisely to your needs, the handy device provides you with exactly the measurement functions you need at the printing machine:

  • Density
  • Dot gain value
  • Dot value
  • Balance

Different versions of our measuring device are possible, with and without polarising filter, and different filter sets.
