Improving Color Management at Every Link of the Supply Chain
The Ci6x family of handheld spectrophotometers Ñ Ci60, Ci62, Ci64
& Ci64UV is a performance-driven solution for managing color at any
stage of production, and gives manufacturers a whole new level of
confidence in their color data, regardless of where or when the
measurements are collected.
The Ci6x Series creates opportunities to develop a consistent color
monitoring program, efficiently manage process quality control, and
reduce operating costs.
A Versatile Package for a Wide Range of Color Applications
The many options within the product family give operations of all
sizes the ability to build in a stable measurement system that delivers
repeatable performance and increased product yield. This makes the Ci6x
Series a reliable solution for a wide range of industries and
Commercial Coatings. The need to meet specific color
codes and regulations requires repeatable color measurement. The Ci6x
Series provides the consistency demanded to ensure batch-to-batch color
Plastics. Batch consistencyÑfrom raw material
through finished productÑoften varies depending on material supplier and
process conditions. The Ci6x Series can monitor the color impact of
shifts in process variables, while X-Rite application software storing
color data that can be shared among the supply network to ensure color
Automotive. Whether OEM interior, aftermarket parts,
or second- and third-tier supplier components, color accuracy is an
absolute must. The Ci6x system allows manufacturers at every level to
achieve consistent readings. The ability to simultaneously measure
SCI/SCE further enhances the quality control process.
Textiles. While materials and fabrics may appear
similar at first glance, those that contain optical brightening agents
(OBA) may result in a much different look under varied lighting
conditions. Available calibrated UV enhanced illumination controls the
UV/visible balance, enabling long-term, consistent measurement of
optically bright samples.
Home Furnishings. Different materialsÑwood, paint,
plastic, metal, fabricÑand a wide variety of colors, make repeatable
color conformance critical. The Ci6x family is able to read a wide range
of materials and provide a benchmark measurement that can be used at
each step of the production or assembly process.
