Using the patented Innovative Optical System technology the CM-3610A can handle measurements for numerical gloss control (NGC) for simultaneous measurements with (SCI) and without (SCE) specular components. Additionally, numerical UV control (NUVC) is the top technology for UV adjustments to measure samples containing optical brighteners like paper textiles, pulp or other chemicals.

These technologies ensure the repeatability and highest accuracy levels. With a reduced number of moving parts the CM-3610A has superior reliability and offers an incredible price performance ratio.
