Konica Minolta launches latest color measurement solution
Jul '13
Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the launch of its latest color measurement solution; the innovative NC-1 non-contact in-line system. Expertly crafted and engineered to monitor and control color, the new system provides real-time analysis of color for quality and process control.

The NC-1 system's high-speed and accuracy are important features for indispensable color critical applications that require a high consistency of color quality. Designed to withstand harsh plant conditions and production settings, NC-1 is geared towards closed loop applications in food, plastic, textile, building materials, and medical industries.

The launch of NC-1 further complements Konica Minolta's line of renowned handheld and benchtop color measurement equipment. Continuous and reliable color measurement is made easy with the system's innovative technology, advanced software, and easy-to-operate touch-screen controls.

Designed to optimize production quality control, NC-1 brings high productivity and cost savings. The powerful NC-1 quickly detects out-of-spec color with measurement speeds as high as 20-times per second, allowing operators to strengthen their operating efficiencies.

Dan Randall, National Sales Manager, Konica Minolta Sensing explains, "NC-1 in-line color control provides the manufacturer with the unique opportunity to correct a color problem before it gets to the end of the production line. The NC-1 reads color at an extremely rapid rate, real-time, and without contact with the product. This real-time data becomes the trigger for process control, eliminating waste, and improving product quality with real bottom-line savings to the plant." 

NC-1 non-contact in-line measurement system is available in the U.S. and Canada, backed by Konica Minolta's world-class reliable service and support.
