pressdotpressDot is a single unit, hand-held highly portable device that is able to measure tonal areas of printing plates and provide instant feedback with immediate on-screen readings.

Where speed and accuracy is the demand pressDot is the answer – simply place the instrument over the required area to be measured and take a measurement, the results are instantly displayed on the in-built screen.

Using the proven algorithms of Centurfax’s acclaimed range of dotMeter devices pressDot is the ultimate device in the range – developed following customer feedback.  “Customers liked the cost-effectiveness of our recent quality control range, which utilises off-the-shelf microscope hardware, but wanted the convenience of an on-screen reading rather than having to download images to a PC or Android device to get detailed results. The introduction of pressDot is sure to be of great interest to customers worldwide,” said Paul Foster (International Sales Director for ccDotmeter).

pressDot is suitable for measuring dots from 6 microns in size, making the unit perfect for all types of screening technology, including FM, hybrid, and AM variants. The built-in viewing screen allows for easy, instant targeting of a specific area, including instant viewing of the results.

In addition to interfacing with the sophisticated UK-built software to interrogate a screened area of print, pressDot doubles as a digital loupe to allow printers to gain a detailed view of their print – a far more detailed image than would be possible using the old favourite, ink-stained metal or plastic loupe.

easyDot dotmeter for Android (tablet or smartphone)Watch easyDot video

easyDot consists of a digital microscope incorporating Centurfax dotmeter software and a specially developed Centurfax app for standard Android devices such as the Nexus 7 from Google. The product package is capable of providing the percentage dot value of a scanned patch and the image view on the tablet screen.

Feedback via the easyDot Android tablet interface will provide fast, accurate details of the dot percentage which in-turn enables efficient calibration of the output engine, whether that be a computer-to-plate device or a computer-to-film solution.

This cost-effective quality control combination is capable of calculating screen ruling, percentage dot value, and screen angle on film, printing plate, and litho printed output.

The portable microscope unit incorporates a built-in screen for instant targeting and viewing, and the unit is capable of reading dots from 6 microns in size, making it ideal for all types of screening including FM, Hybrid, AM and the new DM screening for Harlequin RIPs.

Percentage dot data can be easily captured, stored and input directly to either your RIP calculation chart or spreadsheet for accurate device calibration.

Precise measurement with a dotmeter enables the effective calibration of a computer-to-plate or imagesetting device. Only an accurately set-up device can image a printing plate that can be relied upon to produce a perfectly printed sheet. How important are perfectly printed sheets to you and your customer?

For users requiring more detailed image information and process control then the microDot for PC is the recommended solution.
