Testing Solutions for Color Harmony and Surface Texture

Handheld & Benchtop Spectrophotometer – Light Booths – Liquid Color Meter

The “Revolution in Color Measurement” continues

Color quality control of small parts made easy with the new spectro2go XS

The visual impression defines our judgment of quality and is the key driver in our purchasing decision. Color uniformity, also referred to as “COLOR HARMONY”, is especially important for multi-component products. Small parts can easily stand out like a thorn in the side, if their color does not match the other components.

WELCOME the new spectro2go XS
New color spectrophotometer for measurement of small parts



Turning old into new: Investing in the future!

The possibilities offered by new technologies today were hardly imaginable a few years ago. The new spectro2guide lives up to its slogan "The revolution in color measurement".

A repair or recertification of our first generation of color meters, spectro-guide family, can no longer be guaranteed due to unavailability of spare parts (manufactured before 2013). Another reason to retire a 10 year old device and take advantage of this unique TRADE-IN offer.

No Surprising Mismatches! A Light Booth offers Standardized Conditions

It is a real challenge to achieve standard daylight D65 as defined by CIE. The light booth byko-spectra pro uses a smart combination of filtered tungsten-halogen lamps and LEDs to achieve best possible agreement with natural daylight.

  • Highest rendering Class A according to CIE 51.2 - unsurpassed in the industry.
  • Actual color temperature, light intensity and lamp operation time are displayed
    to trigger lamp replacement.
  • Auto sequence mode allows focusing on color appraisal only.

See things the right way with byko-spectra pro!

Basic Building Blocks of Color

Visual color perception is influenced by our individual color preferences depending on our personal experience and memory. Therefore, standardization of light source and observer are essential for an objective color control.

CIE standardized light source and observer guarantee an objective description of colored objects. Only the use of standardized color instruments with internationally specified color systems can solve the shortcomings of visual perception.

Color Measurement of Wood Coatings

Keep the natural look

Wood is one of the most versatile raw materials in the world. It creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere and is therefore, often used for furniture and parquet flooring. On the one hand, fresh and exciting looks are demanded by consumers; on the other hand, the natural look should still be noticeable. Due to its individual character, color and gloss measurement of wooden surfaces are a special challenge.
