X-Rite to Join Industry Thought Leaders at the AATCC 2015 International Conference for the Textile Industry

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 16, 2015 – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced that it will be exhibiting at AATCC 2015, the International Conference for the Textile Industry, scheduled for March 24th to 26th, 2015, in Savannah, Georgia. At table 19, X-Rite Pantone will debut its next-generation benchtop sphere spectrophotometer, the new Ci7800, designed to help the apparel and textile industries achieve accurate color across the entire supply chain, from concept through dyeing to manufacturing of a final product.


“In a world where textiles and apparel are manufactured on an increasingly distributed and global basis, it can be challenging to ensure consistent color throughout the entire supply chain,” said Mike Beering, Product Manager for XRite. “This year at AATCC, X-Rite will be demonstrating how color measurement instruments like the Ci7800 ensure that specifications and tolerances are met, and that accurate and reliable color data is seamlessly communicated across the entire supply chain.”

The Ci7800 Benchtop Sphere Spectrophotometer provides fast measurement of samples of varying sizes. Operators can easily, consistently and precisely present samples to the instrument for accurate sample-to-sample measurement. Its many new features are designed to improve productivity throughout the entire textile supply chain, from ensuring accurate color in raw materials to delivery of color-perfect final product.

By adding selected software solutions to support the X-Rite Ci7800, users can further improve productivity, reducing errors and rework. These include:

  • Cloud-based NetProfiler to verify, optimize and certify the performance of color measurement devices – across the plant or around the globe.
  • Color iMatch for accurate color formulation to meet customer-provided standards.
  • Color iQC to remove the guesswork from evaluating colors during the production process.
  • Color iQC Taper, a color sequencing solution that allows placement of color data into a sequence that minimizes the differences between adjacent rolls of fabric and reduces the the possibility of creating shaded products.
