X-Rite, a global leader in colour science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone, have unveiled the 2018 Fundamentals of Colour and Appearance Training Seminar in 13 locations throughout North America. The seminar helps participants understand colour theory and appearance science enabling them implement colour quality standards in their organisations.

Topics covered in the trainings include visual evaluation of colour, communicating colour specifications, colour tolerances and instrumentation.

Today many brands and manufacturers are using metallic, sparkle, foil or other special effect finishes and varnishes to differentiate products and meet consumer demands. These effect finishes go beyond colour to appearance and require a new approach to colour specification and management, in order to reduce errors in production and improve quality control.

“We have expanded our popular colour theory training to include appearance science providing attendees with an understanding of how texture, gloss, transparency and special effect finishes can impact a material’s appearance and lead to errors in production,” said Murphy Keeley, general manager Americas, X-Rite. “X-Rite is very excited to be the only company offering this level of detailed training to brand owners to specifiers to quality control professionals. It is essential that anyone working with colour understand both colour and material appearance characteristics in order to improve specification, communication and quality control requirements for today’s complex materials.”

The Fundamentals of Colour and Appearance Training Series incorporates decades of colour management experience and best practices and is presented by X-Rite colour experts. The interactive seminar is ideal for colour specifiers, quality control professionals, lab technicians and anyone who evaluates or approves colour.

The two day seminar will have a session on Fundamentals of Colour and Appearance (FOCA) training which provides foundational elements of colour theory and appearance science, the leading techniques for effective colour management, as well as new ways to evaluate appearance characteristics. Attendees will learn how to measure, read, and evaluate colour data in order to improve the speed and reliability of colour communication across their workflow.

There will be a Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC) workshop where attendees use X-Rite spectrophotometers, light booths and software to create colour standards, develop appropriate colour tolerances, measure samples against target colors and analyse the results.

The seminar series commences on February 21st in Nashville, TN. (SV)
