Barbieri NEW SpectroSwing qb

SpectroSwing qb Automatic transmission / reflection spectrophotometer: $5950.00

Introducing the new Barbieri SpectroSwing qb!

The new SpectroSwing qb is designed for simple and automated measuring of color on paper-like substrates with digital printing applications.

The SpectroSwing qb offers automated reflection and transmission measurements for flexible and rigid materials up to 1.2 mm thick. It is designed for industries working with non-textured cardboard, flexible non-textured materials such as paper and film, and labels. Thanks to its precise color measurement technology, including the Barbieri QB technology, the Spectro Swing qb enables high accurate color measurement for the calibration and profiling of digital printing systems. This enables high-quality output profiles and precise linearization of output devices.

Application fields:

  • Creation of ICC profiles for digital output devices on a wide variety of materials (reflective and transmissive).
  • Linearization of digital output devices
  • Single measurements of spot-colors with sub-sequent check for color-true printing
  • Use as a densitometer to determine density values for films and papers

Target markets:

  • High-speed digital inkjet printing
  • Roll-to-Roll Signage for paperlike materials digital inkjet
  • Digital photo and inkjet printing (aqueous, solvent, UV)
  • Label printing
  • Packaging
  • Proofing
  • Fine Art printing
  • Traditional printing
  • Consumer printing


  • Paper, Photopaper and paperlike materials
  • Self adhesive vinyls
  • Labels and film
  • Banner
  • Canvas
  • Cardboard (up to 1,2 mm)

  • Automated reflection and transmission measurements: this feature ensures accurate color measurement of both reflective and transparent materials.
  • Versatile applications: The Spectro Swing qb is ideal for a wide range of materials, including cardboard, paper, film and labels, providing a comprehensive solution for businesses in a variety of industries.
  • Improved color management processes: With its cutting-edge technology, the Spectro Swing qb helps companies improve color accuracy and enhance the quality of their products.
