Plastic molders and extruders need a solution to evaluate color on difficult-to-measure surfaces. Traditional devices are mostly suited for flat or semi-flat samples that are large enough to accommodate the aperture. The MetaVue VS3200 spectrophotometer can take precise, non-contact measurements on almost any plastic sample for less waste and fast approvals.
Often, modifications must be made to capture accurate color on small, curved or irregular plastic pieces.
With a retractable location-aware sample positioner and aperture sizes ranging from 2mm to 12mm, the MetaVue VS3200 can capture precise measurements on a variety of plastic samples without contact. Digital targeting and on-screen preview in Color iQC enable precise alignment for repeatable spectral data, even on curves and tiny plastic pieces like cords and bottle caps.
To handle multiple sample shapes and sizes, the MetaVue VS3200 can be adapted with accessories, including an adjustable stand to measure thicker samples and a benchtop stand that converts the instrument with a sample arm for holding objects in place. MetaVue VS3200 integrates seamlessly with Color iMatch formulation software, Color iQC quality control software, and NetProfiler performance optimization software.
MetaVue VS3200 captures precise color data for a fast ROI:
A non-contact benchtop spectrophotometer with digital on-screen targeting and aperture sizes ranging from 2mm to 12mm to capture precise measurements on a variety of plastic samples, even curved and tiny pieces like cords, buttons, and caps.
Quality control software that works with MetaVue VS3200 to pinpoint the precise measurement spot, determine whether a measurement is in tolerance, and store image samples and settings for an audit trail.
Formulation software that works with MetaVue VS3200 to formulate colorant recipes and create formulation database for a variety of plastics applications.
A cloud-based blend of software and color standards to validate color measurement instrument performance. If accuracy has drifted, NetProfiler can adjust the instrument to bring it back into better agreement or notify that service is required.
Allows the MetaVue VS3200 to be raised or lowered to a desired height for use in environments that measure a wide variety of sample types.
The MetaVue VS3200 spectrophotometer along with Color iQC software can take precise, non-contact measurements to ensure plastic production stays in tolerance for less waste and fast approvals.
