Earlier in 2016, our team collaborated with a Great Lakes-region paints and coating manufacturer to produce a highly specialized solution for analyzing paint mixing bases. We calibrated an OMA-300 Color Analyzer to give a pass/fail reading on over 50 different paint mixing bases, allowing the manufacturer to rapidly correct product quality issues.
Running a custom software build set to streamline cuvette measurements, the system logs the quality data for each run. The OMA provided the team at the manufacturer with a fully-automated quantitative color measurement and rich, continuous data about product quality variance.
It also demonstrated the intrinsic flexibility of the OMA Color Analyzer, which can handle custom calibrations as easily as industry standards like APHA and Saybolt.
