  1. Konica Minolta 26dG Handheld Spectrophotometer and Gloss Meter.
    The latest instrument from Konica Minolta, the CM-26dG, is a handheld spectrophotometer and gloss meter, perfect for the plastics industry. Not only does this instrument allow you to measure colour but also gloss, in one simple measurement. We love this instrument because of it’s unbeatable price-to-performance ratio and it’s unbelievable repeatability and inster-instrument agreement (IIA).
  2. Colibri – Computer Colour Matching Software.
    This modular based software, allows users to create new colour formulations, match colours and perform QC checks on current products. Widely beneficial to masterbatch producers and plastic companies looking to improve on their market offering. Visit the Konica Minolta stand in Hall 11 to see exactly how Colibri can work for you.
  3. Rhopoint Instruments – Surface Appearance Measurement
    Rhopoint specialise in appearance measurement instruments that allow you to measure the quality of a surface. In the plastics industry, we are concerned especially with Gloss and Haze. Rhopoint offer a number of solutions that allow companies to measure Gloss, Haze and Transmission Haze.
