Italian term or phrase: La Norma prescrive di effettuare misurazioni colorimetriche sui pieni dei colori
hello, this is a text on procedures for controlling the quality of prints in a flexographic printing machine. Does "pieni dei colori di scala" mean "solids of the colour range" or something else?
thank you!

"process colours" = the 4 primary colours, the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) - probably the same ones used in your printer to mix all the other shades

agree  Roberta Anderson: yes, colori di scala are process colours. "pieni" here means solid, non-tinted, i.e. 100% cyan, etc.

neutral  philgoddard: This is not my subject area, but isn't "colorimetric measurements on the colors" a double tautology?

  -> not really. Your supposed tautology exists in the source text and isn't really a tautology.
