A Process Tool for Color Control
SpectraProbe® XE is a versatile, high-performance on-line spectrophotometer for continuously measuring, analyzing and reporting product color. It automatically compiles a running record and color profile of each production run. On-line color measurement gives a continuous flow of information, which lets you make faster, better-informed decisions to optimize your process and maintain quality. With real-time color measurement, costly process upsets are minimized, and your operators can take on-the-spot corrective action without waiting for laboratory results. And you'll have an up-to-date information archive that can be used to diagnose how other key process variables affect the color of your product.
SpectraProbe XE utilizes 0° illumination and 45° circumferential viewing optical geometry. This, combined with a large 65 mm diameter viewing area, provides the closest possible agreement between instrumental measurement and visual color assessment. Due to its optical design, the SpectraProbe XE can measure the appearance of color independent of sample surface texture, directionality and gloss. It is ideal for a wide range of process applications, including textile, paper, plastic and coil coating.
