High-Efficiency Benchtop Spectrophotometer Series
Datacolor’s Spectro 1000/700 series spectrophotometer, boasts high efficiency and confidence in color formulation in quality control for plastics and other industries.
A family of close-tolerance benchtop spectrophotometers designed for high efficiency and confidence in color formulation and quality control in plastics and a wide range of other industries is newly offered by Datacolor, Lawrenceville, N.J. The Spectro 1000/700 series features the high inter-instrument agreement Datacolor customers have come to rely on, to ensure uniform color assessments across various instruments and multiple locations throughout the supply chain.
The systems reportedly are designed to increase productivity and improve workflow efficiency through high measurement speeds and seamless backward capability with other Datacolor benchtop instruments. The Spectro 1000/700 family is said to be optimized for the future of color management, featuring internet connectivity for upcoming remote services.
Said company president and CEO Albert Busch, “Heightened by the pandemic and remote working trends, the need for digital exchange of color data has increased. Datacolor set out to develop a family of high-efficiency spectrophotometers designed to meet the industry needs of today while also staying ahead of tomorrow’s trends,” President and CEO, Datacolor. With the Spectro 1000/700 series, users can feel confident their instruments are ready to take advantage of future product enhancements, allowing for remote service and data analytics thanks to internet connectivity.”
Users of the Spectro 1000/700 series will also enjoy greater confidence in their color measurements thanks to its ability to capture the temperature of samples measured. This is an essential new quality control feature for those who work with materials that need be within certain temperature ranges to assure accurate color measurement.
Said Dave Ertle, advanced R&D engineer and solutions center manager at Geon, a Datacolor customer, “The Datacolor 1000 is a game changer. There’s no more guessing if a user measured a specimen that had properly cooled to ambient temperature.”
More processors today are buyingso-called ‘universal’ testers to measure tensile, flexural, compressive, and shear properties for materials evaluation, application development, and quality control. Advanced electronics have improved these instruments’ performance and ease of use—and even led to lower prices.
Broader use of plastics in building products and a growing desire to minimize painting of automotive parts is increasing the need for reliable predictions of light stability and weathering performance.
