X-Rite Showcases Color Management Solutions at the American Coatings Show 2016
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 29, 2016 – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, will showcase its latest color management solutions at the American Coatings Show, April 12-14 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Using lighting, formulation and measurement solutions from X-Rite, production and quality managers can implement standard procedures to achieve accurate color the first time and every time. As a result, manufacturers and suppliers can improve speed to market by reducing the number of color corrections needed to meet customer expectations.
“At the American Coatings Show, attendees can speak with an X-Rite color expert about how to reduce color errors and establish best practices for evaluating and measuring color,” says Chris Winczewski, VP of Product Marketing, X-Rite. “For example our experts will be demonstrating the X-Rite VS450, a non-contact spectrophotometer that can dramatically improve manufacturing times by measuring the color of wet paint. Quality control managers no longer have to wait 24 to 48 hours for paint to dry before determining color and gloss accuracy. This helps to streamline manufacturing, save resources and strengthen customer relationships.”
At the American Coating Show in booth 467, X-Rite will feature color measurement solutions including:
- VS450 non-contact benchtop spectrophotometer, designed for color and gloss measurement on wet or dry samples including paints, powders and plastics.
- MA9X multi-angle spectrophotometer, an intelligent, hand-held tool with the power to provide reliable, consistent color data on special effect coatings such as metallic and pearlescent pigments commonly used in automotive paints.
- Ci7800 benchtop sphere spectrophotometer, which delivers accurate and repeatable sample-to-sample color measurement, from raw materials all the way through to the delivery of an on-spec color product.
- Color iMatch, software that provides accurate color formulation for paint and plastics to meet any customer-provided standard. Helps reduce formulation costs with spectral matching to determine the most cost- effective amount of pigment to achieve accurate color at any opacity level.
- NetProfiler software, which verifies, optimizes, and certifies handheld and benchtop spectrophotometers used in the supply chain at locations worldwide.
