About Our Event
Color management and appearance are essential in many areas of today’s automotive manufacturing environment and requires the ability to measure subtle differences in color and appearance. The measuring methods used for characterizing the visual impression have been highly complex and mainly the domain of experts. In order to obtain a quick and uncomplicated statement concerning the visual quality of a surface, a team of experts from the automotive industry developed a new measuring device which reproduces human perception – the Rhopoint TAMS™ (Total Appearance Measurement System).
Join Konica Minolta at Automotive Circle’s conference, "Car Body Painting”, on June 25-26th, in Detroit/MI and learn more about this amazing automotive system straight from one of Konica’s Experts.
The CM-700d Spectrophotometer is a handheld, portable measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color and appearance of samples very small to large in size.
CM-M6 Multi-Angle Spectrophotometer
The CM-M6 is a portable multi-angle spectrophotometer especially designed for color measurement of metallic or effect paints, such as pearlescent coatings, which can exhibit a noticeable visual change with specific angles of view.
Rhopoint TAMS is an innovative measuring system for characterizing the visual quality of functional and decorative surfaces, and uses four parameters to produce a comprehensive description of the visual sensation: Contrast, image sharpness, waviness, and dominant structure size (dimension).
