Paper Abstract

Over the past five years, the author has built several automated measuring systems for measurement of the color and/or density of scanner and printer calibration targets. These system position portable spectrophotometers with a computer controlled three axis XYZ motorized stage. Also during the past five years the author has published many papers on the mechanisms of lateral diffusion measurement error. At the Society of Plastics Engineers Regional Technical Conference on Color and Appearance at St. Louis, October, 1996 he presented a paper on a lateral diffusion error correction method that employs data from a second measurement made with the sample moved back from the normal measuring position. The present paper reports on efforts to incorporate this error correction method into an automated graphic arts color measurement system.
