Recalibrate the printer by measurement

You can compensate for deviances in color by adjusting the ink densities to those of the reference printer on which the media profile was created.

Before you begin, connect your measuring device to the computer.

This feature is not available for EFI VUTEk, EFI Matan, or EFI Reggiani printers.

  1. Under Printer, select your printer.
  2. Under Media, select the name of the media.
  3. Select your measuring device.

    Device-specific settings are available for some measuring devices.

  4. If you are using an embedded measuring device, select the criteria for recalibration control (optional).

    You can repeat the optimization procedure for a defined number of cycles, or until the defined delta E average is reached.

    If you select both check boxes, the number of cycles is reduced if the optimal delta E value is achieved before the defined number of cycles has been completed. Otherwise, the optimization procedure stops after the defined number of cycles, even if the defined delta E average has not been achieved.

  5. Click Print.
  6. Wait for the ink to dry. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to measure the chart.

    The measured ink limits are compared with the ink limits from the calibration file. After measuring, the delta E result is displayed, together with a recommendation on how to proceed.

  7. Click Advanced (optional). The Advanced window displays the delta E achieved for each ink channel.
  8. Do one of the following:
    • If the measured delta E is within an acceptable tolerance, click Recalibration.

    • If the measured delta E is too high and improvements are possible, click Adjust Ink Limits & Recalibrate.
