Datacolor’s Unmatched Accuracy Drives Product Innovation at Pison Stream Solutions

Pison Stream Solutions is world renowned for its quality and precision. Most of the company’s clients are high-profile aerospace, marine and government market players. The pressure to deliver the right products that meet their clients’ needs is high. Accuracy and precision are critical. Every detail counts when it comes to developing high tech coatings. Getting the color right is one of the hardest challenges. Color specifications must be followed strictly otherwise the entire batch will be canceled, resulting in loss of time and money as well as reputational damage.

Pison Stream Solutions’ chemical coatings product line requires a reliable and robust management system to drive color consistency in production. Agility is also a must to allow continuous innovation while maintaining high quality standards. To achieve this, Pison Stream partnered with Datacolor to predictably and accurately measure, formulate, store and communicate chemical coating color information. 

  • Accurate and repeatable color measurement 
  • Optimized formulation for quality, compatibility and cost criteria 
  • Fast and easy-to-use operation designed to fit existing workflows 
  • Full backward compatibility with the existing fleet of instruments

When sharing and verifying color measurement data across multiple locations, inter-instrument agreement, accuracy and consistency is critical to avoid communication errors and quality degradation along the workflow. Datacolor instruments capture the true spectral fingerprint of any color at the highest possible accuracy. Manufactured to industry leading specifications under ISO certified conditions, these instruments provide Pison Stream Solutions with close tolerance inter-instrument agreement between quality assurance, production and their supply chain. Backward compatibility with their older instruments ensures there is no need to re-measure standards, thus saving time and money while ensuring consistent quality.

“I’m diehard Datacolor. The systems we have in place work fantastically and look great. With Datacolor, it’s a true partnership in innovation and our business would not function at its scale without them. From their training staff to the accuracy of their solutions, I can’t picture a better solution for our supply chain. I plan to incorporate them into our quality assurance labs for years to come.”
