Epson has facilitated colour management for professional printers with the launch of its new Auto Table for the SD-10 spectrophotometer. Chart reading  table-based spectrophotometers are considered the most accurate for ICC profiling.

Epson 40thEpson’s new Auto Table for the SD-10 Spectrophotometer claims to address the common perception that colour management is time consuming and requires specialist technical knowledge and skills.

The SD-10 is an easy-to-use, full-featured colour measuring device that when seamlessly combined with the new Auto Table and Epson Edge Color Lite colour management software (compatible with Epson’s RIP software, Epson Edge Print PRO) offers a genuine colour management solution that addresses most colour management requirements and maximises print output quality.

Epson caims the new solution is fast, with quick auto measurement, enabling users to create an ICC profile by measuring only 379 patches (1 x A3 sheet) and quick verification by measuring the chart with just 80 patches.

The new Auto Table also helps solve colour matching problems in a wide range of print and design-related work, such as those commonly found in the sign and display and textile industries.

By using the new Auto Table with Epson Edge Color Lite and the SD-10 spectrometer, users can create media profiles easily and quickly without any technical knowledge or skills. They can also verify and unify output colour among multiple Epson printers and calibrate and maintain stable output colour for long periods on the same printer.

For enhanced usability, the new Auto Table supports colour chart media sizes up to 331 mm high, 13 mm thick and virtually any length. Then, to make life even easier, the new Auto Table detects media position and thickness automatically through the optical sensors with auto measurement taking just five minutes for an A3 colour chart. 

The new Auto Table boasts easy storage and portability, thanks to its compact design (550 × 395 × 128 mm) and the fact that it only weighs 3.4kg - excluding its bundled carrycase and an SD-10.

Key features of Epson Edge Color Lite and Epson Edge Print PRO

  • Easy and simple operation: fully automated chart reading operation and all functions of Epson Edge Color Lite are integrated in Epson Edge Print PRO and can be operated simply and intuitively without any technical knowledge or skills.
  • High quality gradation: Epson Edge Color Lite can produce smooth gradation without significant gamut downsizing.
  • Gamut viewer: users can visually check and compare the specified gamut of profiles.
  • Fluorescent media profile: Epson Edge Color Lite allow users to create optimised fluorescent colour media profiles for fluorescent capable Epson printers such as the SC-F6460H and SC-F10060H.

Along with the new Auto Table there is also a new optional silicon cover for the SD-10 spectrophotometer to improve the scratch resistance and a new optional SD-10 alignment guide which makes it even easier to adjust the SD-10 colour measurement point.

The new Epson Auto Table for the SD-10, SD-10 silicon cover and SD-10 alignment guide are expected to be availsble in Australia and New Zealand from April 2024.
