Additionally, we have a new test profiling process for ColorGATE Rapid Spectro Cube. This PDF form provides information about the process and all relevant facts for target generation and profiling.


  • All-in-one solution
  • The Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC) is an all-in-one Color Management solution for the creation of ICC profiles especially in industrial digital printing applications. It contains an ultrafast color measurement system and software for ICC profiling. RSC can take substrates right up to a size of 600x600 mm with a maximum substrate thickness of 80 mm while processing as far as 10,000 patches per target. Even color measurements of complex substrate surfaces such as ceramics, glass, textiles or metal are possible due to special optimizations. Additionally, the RSC takes measurements of very small objects, for instance from business card sized labels, from which the RSC can read up to 1000 color patches in just a few seconds, which will be processed into high-quality ICC profiles. 

    RSC already includes an option to measure backlit-materials (transmissive measurement), in order to process and profile objects like City Light posters and backlight displays. In batch mode the RSC allows the creation of up to 20 profiles per hour. 

    There are no limitations for applying the RSC. Fast and secure high-quality ICC profiling (CMYK, RGB, aNyColor) from very small objects is possible as well as processing those profiles with any ICC-compatible image editing or RIP software, e.g. Productionserver. The minimum patch size is only 1 mm. 

  • For all substrates, surfaces
  • Measurements and profiles can be acquired from different conditioned substrates, such as: 

    From non-white/tinted or colored substrates, such as:

    • Corrugated
    • Leather
    • Metallic surfaces
    • Wood, ceramics

    From translucent surfaces and high gloss substrates, such as:

    • Glass
    • Varnish
    • High gloss ceramic tiles
    • High gloss finished décor panels
    • Metallic surfaces
    • Backlit materials

    From structured substrates, such as:

    • Carpets
    • Ceramic tiles
    • Leather
    • Textiles
  • Multiple applications
  • RSC Flightcase (RSC FC)

    The main advantage of RSC FC is its mobility and low weight which makes it very easy to transport (32 kg weight). The RSC FC will be delivered therefore in a flightcase. The measurement unit´s flightcase has a build in trolley and is setup in less than 5 minutes, which is interesting for color management service provides, because the RSC can be used for on-site jobs. The delivery contents are besides the flightcase a software for target generation and ICC profiling as well as a Value Pack 365 software maintenance and support contract.

    RSC Heavy Duty (RSC HD)

    Rapid Spectro Cube HD (RSC HD) is characterized by its high stability and is therefore suitable for heavy substrates. It also has its own drawer for easy loading of substrates. The RSC HD can be supplied with either a highres or a standard-sensor and is extremely versatile.

    • Ideal for heavy weight materials like ceramic tiles, concrete,…
    • Drawer to load the substrate
    • Quality control applications (also with RSC FC)

     How to choose your RSC

    • Do you want to scan and / or profile? Which sensor do you prefer (standard-sensor or highres-sensor)?
    • How do you want to use your RSC?
    • Do you need a portable device?
    • Or a stationary device?

    Depending on your needs ColorGATE can offer different options of RSC HD and RSC FC. Do you need more information? Then you can contact our customer service and we will create an individual offer for you.

    „What you see is what you get” – “Measure like your own eyes”

    Typical spectrophotometers for graphical applications are specialized to read the single patches of printed media in a standard compliant way according to their fixed illumination and sensor geometry. They apply low-resolution sensors which make the process very time-consuming and it may lead to incorrect measurements of structured or translucent or reflective surfaces, with the consequence that obtained measurement data is useless for accurate color management.

    The RSC, however, with its high-resolution sensor technology is able to read a large surface at once and provides accurate measurement results, even for surfaces that are difficult to measure to  characterize them precisely. In doing so, the reading method of the RSC corresponds to the actual color impression of the human eye.

    At one glance:

    • Maximum substrate size 600x600 mm, substrate thickness 80 mm
    • Maximum target size 450x450 mm
    • Processing of 10000 patches per target
    • Measuring extremely small objects is possible, minimum patch size 1 mm
    • Omnidirectional illumination
    • Creation of high-quality ICC profiles (CMYK, RGB, aNyColor)
    • Depending on the device selection, different sensors (standard-sensor or highres-sensor) and different possibilities for scanning and profiling are available
