How to import the PSO 2013 job template
Extract the eXactJobTemplates_ISO12647-2-2013.zip file.
Open the folder
Follow the steps in this guide: eXactJobTemplates_ISO12647-2-2013.pdf.
As the new 2013 templates will have to use M1 as a measurement condition there is also a new eXact PSO-M1 tool prepared that you can import to your eXact and use with the new templates. This will help you to keep the 2007 and 2013 templates organized and separated from each other in order to avoid using the wrong ones in production.
How to measure a solid and compare it with a job template?
Open the PSO tool.
Click Select Job Name.
Click Create new Job Name.
Type in the job name and click OK.
Select the new job.
Click Select Job Template.
Swipe up or down and select the desired Job Template.
Consult the table at the bottom of this page (Job template details) for an overview of all the job templates and their corresponding details and use case.
Measure the press substrate.
A green check ("V" symbol) means that the measurement is within tolerance.
An orange check means that the measurement is within tolerance but close to failure.
A red check means that the measurement is out of tolerance.
Click the green icon at the top right corner (the single circle) to view the reference value.
Measure any solid process color (the auto function will detect the color). The measurement results are presented in a Current and BestMatch view. The Current view shows the dE* value between the measured sample and the reference (5.92) and the measured density value for cyan (1.28). BestMatch calculates the closest possible match without the need to reformulate the ink. In the above example, a BestMatch of dE* 3.65 is possible when adjusting either the density (+0.27) when working in offset or adjusting the ink concentration by 21% when working in Gravure or Flexo.
