In-line colour measurement

Posted here on is news that Konica Minolta is releasing a new in-line colour management system called NC-1.

We have been discussing in-line measurement and control with another company recently, particularly the commercial value of such systems. The problem seems to be that the substantial cost is not outweighed by the productivity benefits in their industry. The coatings and paint industry has long striven to avoid lengthy runs of pipe work over which variance in colour can occur – the obvious driver for an in-line measurement system.

In-line measurement is the logical best way to measure colour consistency and repeatability without a doubt. That said, we need a commercial driver too..
