Our OCCA Weekly Webinars series continues with "Cutting Edge Colour Matching Solutions for Paints & Plastics" presented by Colin Wakeford of X-Rite Ltd
This webinar is free to attend, simply register below and you'll receive further details/instructions on how to join the webinar in due course.
With the release of Color iMatch v10 X-Rite continues to evolve their colour matching software platform with a new, improved, math engine which provides even more accurate matching performance across the full range of paint and plastic applications.
Allied to this, alongside the Ci7000 range of reference grade benchtop spectrophotometers, comes the VS3200 non-contact imaging spectrophotometer. This unique instrument revolutionises the way wet, textured and shaped materials can be measured; overcoming shadow and texture which traditionally adversely affect sample measurement and allowing for multiple colour extraction from design pieces.
This combination of hardware and software offers cutting edge colour matching capability for the 21st century.
