The NC-1 is an automated, non-contact color monitoring and control system built to measure the color of products continuously and accurately as they move down the production line. Ideal for measuring smooth, textured, and multi-colored materials, this high performance, high-speed measurement system minimizes downtime, rejects, and rework for manufacturers by notifying users in real-time when products are close to being out of specification or are completely out of specification. This allows users to take corrective action immediately before operations are impacted. For true closed-loop process control and optimized productivity, the NC-1 can also be integrated with manufacturer process control systems to adjust production settings automatically and bring inconsistent samples quickly within specification.
The NC-1 In-line Color Monitoring and Control System analyzes the color quality of each product using a built-in, Windows-based software program, allowing users to monitor products directly within the system’s control panel or through a PC on a remote network. With this, users can monitor products on each production line from any location to ensure standards are being met.
