Spectrophotometers to Measure Inconsistency in Plastic Colors
Plastic manufacturing is often compromised by continuous rejection on the production line due to problems such as color discrepancies. Keeping color consistent through the supply chain is one way to control and reduce this type of waste. Products that don’t pass a quality control check can affect the company profits, altering lead time and final quantities. Integrating a high grade color evaluation into the process ensures a final product with a consistent appearance. This can be done with a spectrophotometer.
A spectrophotometer can measure the value of a color in numerical terms. With a spectrophotometer, pigments can be compared on an extremely precise level that surpasses the perception of the human eye. This process allows colors to be compared to manufacturer standards during the molding and compounding stage of production, eliminating inconsistencies early. Color measurement reduces waste and improves profits.
Popular color measurement instruments used in the plastics industry:
