Pantone Formula Scales

 

 

 

As all printers know, mixing up a PANTONE colour requires considerable accuracy. It is easy to make a mistake when you're in a hurry, the Pantone inks themselves are not exactly cheap and neither is your time if you mess up your mix.

 

Many, if not most of the newer PANTONE colours (644 colours to be exact) have 1-2 extra digits (example: 10.24 gr.) which makes the task of mixing a perfectly correct Pantone colour even more difficult.

 

For printers that frequently have to make smaller mixes - say 2-300 grams it is a very good idea to pick a scale with an accuracy of +/- 0.1 = one extra digit.

 

The best and the most comfortable way to go is to invest in a PANTONE FORMULA SCALE, manufactured by Cherlyn, UK .
The scales come ready with all the Pantone libraries you need built-in. All you need to do is to enter your PMS number and the scale will tell you how much ink you need of each base ink and count down to zero as you add your inks.

 

The new PANTONE scales are even smart enough to offer you to increase your mix if you accidently put too much of one base ink and are unable to remove it. In this case the scale recalculates the mix at the push of a button and you add a little more of the other base inks as well to get back on track.

 

Upgrades are available for older PANTONE PFS3 scales at 250 Euros / DKR 1.875 including transport, excluding VAT.


Please send us the PUK & Serial number of your scale so we can confirm that your scale can be upgraded.
