A spectrophotometer is objective, precise and data driven, guaranteeing a consistent and accurate outcome in the measurement of color in industrial applications. Using a spectrophotometer correctly with a good process will guarantee increased productivity and accepted results that will make your job easier.

When choosing the right type of spectrophotometer, you must consider the type of color you are measuring, the material that you are measuring, the amount of data that you need, and your budget. Choose the wrong spectrophotometer and you won’t get the results you need or expect.

Ci6x Family

Portable Sphere Spectrophotometers

The X-Rite Ci6x family of sphere spectrophotometers, together with NetProfiler, Color iMatch and Color iQC software, reduce rejection rates and scrap and improve time to market and profitability. They accurately measure reflective or uneven surfaces or materials including optical brightening agents for a wide variety of products and packaging types. With a variety of configurations and price points, the Ci6x family offers solutions for organizations of all types and sizes.

MetaVue VS3200

Non-Contact Imaging Spectrophotometer

For industrial applications in coatings, plastics, cosmetics and more, accurate, consistent color is vital. Whether measuring plastic parts, cosmetics, or liquid coatings, MetaVue VS3200, a versatile non-contact imaging spectrophotometer can speed up color formulation, production color checks and quality control operations, reducing waste and rework while shrinking cycle time. This is especially important in environments with frequent production color changes. Its unique capabilities streamline measurements in both lab and quality control operations.


Benchtop Sphere Spectrophotometers

The X-Rite Ci7x00 family of benchtop sphere spectrophotometers deliver true process control for perfect color fidelity. These instruments, when paired with NetProfiler and Color iMatch or Color iQC software, set a new standard for measuring, managing and communicating color while providing an unprecedented audit trail. They deliver repeatable performance and are easier to service than any other benchtop sphere spectrophotometer in the market today. The Ci7x00 family fits seamlessly into any workflow environment with unmatched inter-instrument agreement and compatibility with legacy data formats.

MA-T In Use

Portable Multi-Angle Spectrophotometers

The most advanced range of multi-angle spectrophotometers available today, the MA-T family combines color imaging with multi-angle measurement to deliver the most complete characterization of color, sparkle, and coarseness. Users can specify and measure effect finishes across a variety of applications, from automotive paint to plastics and metals, with more precision than ever possible. EFX QC cloud-based software simplifies the process of communicating tolerances and measurement methods across distributed supply chains. New visual tools enable real-time performance monitoring and deliver actionable insights for troubleshooting to reduce downtime, waste, and rework.
