WELCOME 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. The spectro2go XS with a reduced measuring aperture is specially developed for the color quality control of small parts.

Spin your color QC to the next level!

Plastic granulate is a key material in the plastics industry and is the starting point for the manufacture of a wide range of products. The requirements on color quality control of granulate are particularly challenging because of the extreme material diversity.

The sample rotator attached to the color2view automatically rotates the pellets during the measurement. Thus, excellent repeatability and reproducibility are guaranteed!

The Color GREEN

Things you might not know

The color GREEN, being the color of nature, represents fertility, growth, greenability and sustainability. It brings to mind lush grass, trees, and forests. It is the most restful and relaxing color to the eye optically due to its spectral wavelength.

Thus, the color GREEN is often used for products to associate a positive reaction. A green traffic light signals that it is safe to cross the road. Emergency exits are often marked green and indicate an escape route.
