Konica Minolta to Release New Portable Spectrophotometers CM-26d, and CM-25d offering unprecedented accuracy/inter-instrument agreement (IIA), usually found in laboratory-grade instrumentation

4/30/2019

Ramsey N.J. (April 30, 2019) - Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced that the company will launch the new CM-26d and cost-effective model CM-25d portable spectrophotometers for high-precision color measurement. 

CM-25d Spectrophotometer

The CM-26d, and CM-25d are new models being introduced as the next generation of spectrophotometers. These instruments are used from R&D, Q.A., to production at sites that manufacture a range of parts for various industries such as automotive interors and exterior parts for smartphones and tablets, helping to increase efficiency and reduce manpower in customer operations and enabling digital color data management across increasingly globalized supply chains.

The CM-26d, and CM-25d portable spectrophotometers offer unprecedented accuracy/inter-instrument agreement (IIA), usually reserved for laboratory-grade instrumentation. This precision will allow superior color communication throughout the supply chain from supplier to final assembly. The CM-26d has an IIA of 0.12 DE* (average of 12 BCRA tiles), which is approximately 40% better than its predecessor.

The CM-26d can switch between Ø8mm and Ø3mm measurement areas (the CM-25d has a fixed Ø8mm measurement area) for measuring parts of different sizes. All models are also equipped with an illuminated viewfinder for accurate positioning on patterned subjects or small parts, and instrument surfaces which come in contact with the measurement subject, sample friendly aperture nicely fit to sample surface, giving repeatable results and both are ergonomicly designed for either right-handed or left-handed users.

The CM-26d and CM-25d offer additional features to improve work flow, eliminate waste/rework, and offer customers general cost savings on color related processes. The new Job function allows for graphical representation/instructions for routine color measurements to be made within specific processes. Combined with a reduced measurement time, this allows users of all levels to maintain high levels of productivity, accuracy, and consistency. Also included with each unit is the CM-CT1 Configuration Tool software that allows users to create/write instrument settings as well as compile it into a file and share it within its supply chain for proper global fleet management.

The information, specifications, and product appearance provided in this news release are subject to change without notice.
