Albin Baranauskas, MD, Techkon GmbH, Germany.

Techkon managing director Albin Baranauskas will present a free workshop on spectrophotometers at next month’s PacPrint 2017 exhibition in Melbourne.

Local distributor Colour Graphic Services (CGS) will welcome Baranauskas from Germany on his first visit to Australia. The workshop will cover colour measurement for printing, packaging, photography, wide format and digital reproduction.

“The topic is Efficient use of Spectrophotometers,” says local CGS MD David Crowther. “Changes to ISO and other standards have necessitated changes in spectro- and spectro-densitometer design and usage. It can be quite confusing with terms such as M0, M1, M2 and M3, the use of optical brighteners in paper stocks and varying illumination specifications such as D50 and D65.

“Albin is highly experienced in every aspect of correct use of colour measuring devices and the software that goes with them and he communicates very clearly indeed. It will be a very useful workshop for all sectors of the graphic arts.”

The workshop date is Thursday 25th May from 2:30 to 3:00 pm and will be a hands-on experience with plenty of time for questions and answers.

Advance bookings to assure seating for this free workshop can be made online at: by selecting the 12th workshop down from the drop-down list.

Colour Graphic Services is exhibiting at PacPrint on stand B62, where Baranauskas and Corinne Pèrigaud, also from Techkon, will be based.
