OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.

Our Autumn Series of OCCA Weekly Webinars continues with "Cost Effective Quality Control for Effect Colours" presented by Colin Wakeford of X-Rite.
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.
The MA5QC multi-angle spectrophotometer, launched in October 2019, is a compact, cost-effective, production-oriented, easy-to-use instrument.
Based on the advanced LED technology which was introduced with the X-Rite MA T6 and T12 devices in 2017, this five-angle instrument (15°, 25°, 45°, 75° and 110° angles which comply with international automotive standards) has a 12mm measurement spot and provides reflectance data at 10nm intervals. The LED lamp technology provides long life, stability and up to 2,000 measurements per charge. Internal calibration negates the need for daily calibration to an external standard.
It can either be used stand-alone to give precise fast colorimetric pass/fail results via it’s easy-to-use touch screen menus or used in combination with X-Rite’s EFX-QC software to provide custom workflows and more detailed Pass/Fail detail.
The EFX-QC software is a cloud-based software solution with a clear, easy to follow workflow allowing for simple measurement, communication, and testing of colour across supply chains.
