A stable running process is the key for uniform and consistent quality. Therefore, gloss needs to be measured on a routine basis in the production process and the measurement results need to be documented for process automization. The micro-gloss ROBOTIC allows automated gloss control.

With the robust fixture it can be integrated into measuring systems like a xy-table. Thus, measurements are taken always on the same sample area, which ensures repeatable positioning and reliable results.

  • Intelligent gloss measurement with smart communication
  • Excellent repeatability and inter-instrument agreement guaranteed
  • Intelligent auto diagnosis guarantees always accurate readings
  • Brilliant color display easy to read - easy to use
  • Statistics, Pass/Fail and Memory - ideal for QC and checks in the field
  • Continuous mode to check uniformity over large areas

Gloss Measurement

Gloss measurement is an important factor in quality control to guarantee a consistent and uniform gloss of any product. The visual perception is depending on the observer, illumination and viewing conditions as well as on material and product properties. In order to measure gloss objectively instrumental measurement is performed with a gloss meter. Dependent on the gloss level and the application different geometries and functions are needed. The following article reviews visual perception of gloss, measurement principle of a gloss meter, when to use which measurement geometry and gives practical hints for special applications and how to deal with limitations.

Guide for Reliable Gloss Data

Uniform and consistent gloss are an essential quality criterion for a variety of products. Therefore, gloss needs to be objectively measured. Only what can be objectively measured, can be controlled and can be optimized which is of importance in product development as well as in production control. Especially in case of multi-component products a uniform gloss is an expression of “high quality”. Variations in gloss look like something is wrong and the end-user will perceive it as a defect. Therefore, gloss limits and tolerances are defined based on application and customer expectations.
