X-Rite, Incorporated has introduced the RM200QC handheld spectrocolorimeter to give companies an inexpensive, yet powerfull, way to record and communicate color differences to speed introduction of new products and reduce instances of scrap.
The hand-held RM200QC simplifies how textile, coatings, chemicals, plastic molding and other industries can compare the colors of lab samples or parts in production with reference standards, then create reports that can be shared with supply chain partners.
The RM200QC has proven useful for setting color standards and enhancing productivity for Poppin, Inc. Poppin Vice President, Roger Cole said Poppin manufacturing personnel use the RM200QC as a quality control device to monitor color deviation between items in production and the Pantone standard color.
Using L*a*b* data generated by the RM200QC, Poppin has been able to reduce the difference between what New York designers stipulate and what is manufactured in China.
