No stranger to technology, the plastics industry continues to expand its variety of digital color management solutions. At the head of the pack? Sichuan Dowell Science & Technology.
With the growth of digital technology and its many applications, thousands of computer-aided color measurement and matching systems have been put into industrial application since the 1980s. The use of computer-aided color matching systems has also become popular in leather chemicals, textiles, plastics, inks, automobiles, dyes, and pigments, among other industries.
Modern, computer-aided color matching systems integrate spectrophotometers, computers and color matching software. The system stores the pigment paste data for use in production in advance. It then uses that data to calculate the mixing ratio of the pigment paste in order to produce color just like the standard sample. By doing so, it can generate a predetermined recipe.
