VeriColor Spectro

Do you change production color frequently and/or face challenges with ensuring fast change-over times and minimal waste of expensive materials? By implementing the X-Rite VeriColor inline spectrophotometer, you can quickly and accurately determine colorant requirements, seamlessly communicating among formulation, production and quality control systems.

Accurate and affordable, the VeriColor Spectro is compact and durable, ideal for harsh industrial manufacturing applications. No special lighting or shrouding is required with this all-inclusive solution, which excludes ambient light. You will improve quality control and reduce operating expense with this cost-efficient, in-line non-contact color measurement solution that provides absolute spectral and colorimetric data for process control. It is easy to set up and manage and enables color control in real time to contain and eliminate color problems without disrupting production.
VeriColor Spectro Advantages
• High Spectral Resolution. True 31-band spectrophotometer provides absolute color data across the visible spectrum at 10 nm intervals
• Industrial Hardened. Lab-grade performance in a robust industrially hardened design, NEMA 4 / IP67 rated, that withstands shock, vibration and thermal variation
• Patented Technology. Allows accurate in-line capture of color data in the presence of depth variation and dramatic changes in ambient light
• Flexible. System interfacing for PC or PLC based operations
• Intuitive. Includes easy to use windows based Set-Up and Monitoring Software with real-time visual monitoring and trending graphics

Benefits : Monitor, control and log color during production — in-line, real time
• Analyze and contain color problems — make corrections without stopping production
• Minimize scrap cost — detect and correct before generating excessive waste
• Insure consistent color quality, all the time
