Unique and innovative cars redefine the way consumers think about their automobiles. Merging high-tech features, design, comfort, and functionality into an aesthetic vehicle provides a relaxing place for consumers. However, combining different textures and materials like plastics, metals, and leathers both inside and out requires a reliable color measurement system to deliver true color fidelity.
Precise color measurement tools that can characterize color and appearance attributes on a variety of textures can ensure color is exactly how it was intended to be at the time of final assembly. X-Rite’s color control for automotive manufacturers connects color accurately throughout the entire process while reducing product scrap, production downtime and rework, and simplifying the color management process through a global supply chain.
Customizable solutions from X-Rite enable automotive manufacturers to:
A dependable quality control program streamlines approval processes and reduces color inconsistencies across exterior car parts. With the right tools, automotive manufacturers can communicate, control, and evaluate color on incoming parts from multiple suppliers and plants to ensure final assembled color matches from the bumper to the fuel gas door to the side mirrors.
Ensuring color harmony across interior parts is one of the most challenging things for automotive manufacturers. Measuring and monitoring color from the lab through the production line is key to ensuring stable and accurate color, minimizing cost and waste that can result in thousands of dollars in financial loss. X-Rite solutions provides operators the tools they need to avoid these costly line errors and rework, and ensure color harmony across interior materials and parts.
Reacting quickly to consumer needs and creating new color palettes requires a dependable formulation program. X-Rite’s color formulation solutions help reduce the steps to an acceptable color match, manage colorant recipes and specifications, provide consistent color reproduction, and reduce overall waste and rework.
