CO.FO.ME.GRA. Srl, Italy
Founded in 1948 to design and manufacture carbon arc lamps, then later xenon lamps, and photo-etching machines for zinc and magnesium plates.
In the 1960s, CO.FO.ME.GRA. began producing a complete range of densitometers for quality control and standardisation in the pre-press, flexo and offset printing markets.
SOLARBOX instruments were developed in the 1980s for the accelerated testing of the resistance of materials to sunlight.
Known for their product innovation, CO.FO.ME.GRA’s modern factory in Milan, Italy, is staffed by highly qualified people dedicated to continuous improvement of their products and offering a full range of services, including: installation, training, technical support, maintenance and calibration services.
SOLARBOX Xenon Exposure Testing System
For accelerated light stability and weathering testing, SOLARBOX tabletop xenon test chambers are available in two sizes and four models.
Radiant energy is provided by a single, high quality, air-cooled Xenon lamp, which generates an irradiance level up to two times that of the sun.
SOLARBOX offers constant measurement and control of the irradiance during every test, compensating for lamp and UV filter ageing by a closed loop irradiance control system. Irradiation uniformity is ensured by the use of a parabolic reflector chamber. This design provides a reliable flat-bed xenon exposure system and very good agreement with rotating drum xenon exposures.
A flooding system for weathering tests is also available. During flooding, the Xenon Lamp can be programmed to be on or off. The flooding system operates with demineralised water from a closed recycling circuit, which minimizes the use the water,but offers the same test results as that of a high consumption spray system. PVC and corrosion-resistant materials ensure long life.
SOLARBOX instruments meet many international methods and Standards, including::

DTP 642 Mini Densitometer for Desk Top Publishing
The only high precision densitometer for image-setter setup and film processor inspection.
This portable, hand-held transmission densitometer features a built-in light source to increase reliability and accuracy of density and dot area measurement.
And measurement doesn’t have to be on a light table!
Battery operated, the DTP 642 provides the performance of a laboratory desktop densitometer at a very competitive price.
DTP 646 and DTP 644 UV Transmission Densitometers
With a throat of more than 20cm, these instruments are ideal for the measurement of large films.
Rechargeable battery powered, (supplied with an AC adapter), the lit area around the reading aperture makes positioning easy!
With two, interchangeable apertures (1mm and 2,5mm) these instruments offer very accurate dot area and transmission density measurement.
