Reliable inline colour measurement of structured and curved surfaces

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 2nd June 2015

Bestech Australia is introducing the new sensor head for the colorCONTROL ACS7000 performing inline colour measurement on structured and curved surfaces with an extremely small measurement spot.colorCONTROL_ACS2_18x13

One of the most precise inline colour measurement systems in the world, the colorCONTROL ACS7000 has been expanded with a new sensor model that is now available from Bestech Australia. The sensor with the designation ACS2-R45/0-28-1200(001) is designed as circular sensor and has a measurement spot of 3 x 2mm. The small, oval measurement spot offers advantages primarily on structured surfaces which are difficult to detect with conventional colour sensors, e.g. wooden veneers, floor coverings and textiles. The continuous, homogeneous lighting allows measurements to be carried out regardless of the angular position of the target object. This is why the new sensor head is perfectly suitable for the quality control of curved objects. The curvature radius should be at least 20mm.

The inline colorCONTROL ACS7000 colour measurement system is successfully applied in colour control systems for high volume productions, the automotive industry, as well as in plastics and textile production. Please contact Bestech Australia for more details or to discuss your application.
