Testing: Vertical Spectrophotometer for Hard-to-Measure Materials and Shapes

Datacolor’s SpectraVision V vertical model measures and digitally communicates the color of “unmeasurables” for expanded applications. 

The latest addition to the SpectraVision family of spectrophotometers from Datacolor, Lawrenceville, N.J., is said to obejectively measure and digitally communicate color measurements for the “unmeasurables”—or, multi-colored, textured, small-sized and irregular-shaped materials. SpectraVision V reportedly  increases efficiency by reducing the steps to match and approve color.

The new vertical configuration, sample tray and cup enable customers to measure a wide variety of samples, such as plastic pellets, watch components, electronic parts, and much more. High resolution sample images taken by the hyperspectral spectrophotometer can also be leveraged for onscreen color evaluation and communication of colorimetric data.

Said president and CEO Albert Busch, “With the new vertical configuration and enhancements to the Datacolor Tools SV software, we are able to extend the benefits of objective digital color management to multiple industries and customers. Customers with previously unmeasurable materials, whether due to its size, shape, texture, or applications can now conduct consistent, repeatable, objective color measurements, result in increased efficiency, reduced costs and faster time to market.”


  • Industrial CT Scanning Speeds Mold Qualification

    Qualifying a mold often can take weeks and involve several costly and time-consuming steps.

  • Nanocomposites Do More With Less

    For skeptics who may doubt that nanocomposites have yet proven themselves commercially viable materials, last year’s Nanocomposites 2005 Conference in San Francisco presented plenty of evidence that “nanos” are beginning to live up to their promise.

  • Ultrasonic Imaging Finds Voids, Cracks and Bonding Defects

    As material costs climb, acoustic micro-imaging (AMI) is increasingly being used for non-destructive inspection and quality control of microelectronic components and assemblies, adhesive and welded bonds, solid part walls, and other applications where bond integrity, cracking, or voids are an issue.
