Smart Color Analysis and Visualization
Datacolor Tools is an easy-to-use color quality control application for industries where color accuracy is a critical component of overall product quality. Analyze, report, communicate, and visualize accurate color results. Objective pass/fail tolerances and color differences ensure consistent color quality and improved throughput.
Datacolor Tools – Evaluate color quality using a range of color difference formulas, graphics, and indices from CIE, TAPPI, ISO, and more.
Datacolor Sort – Advanced shade sorting, clustering, and tapering to manage roll-to-roll color variation in the entire manufacturing process.
Datacolor Monitor – Measure and report on side-center-side color variation to assure end-to-end color quality.
Work the way you want by displaying plots and data grids in panels that you can modify – without custom programming. Store all of your data in a robust database, then retrieve and manage samples as needed to an intuitive desktop explorer. Add your most frequently used functions to the ribbon bar to increase efficiency.
Customize settings, templates, and access rights based on the needs of individual users.
Spectral visualization of samples
Using monitor calibration with the Datacolor Spyder5, spectral color can be displayed on textured substrates to achieve the highest level of accuracy in visual on-screen assessment. Judge the appearance of a single spectral color on multiple substrates under multiple illuminants. Evaluate metamerism easily and perform color approvals on-screen, reducing the need for physical samples.
Tolerance flexibility and management
It means unlimited flexibility in defining, selecting, and working with color quality control tolerances.
Unique tolerance blocks can be established and then linked automatically into the color QC workflow.
Multiple tolerances such as CMC and Whiteness Index can even be combined. This allows to view multiple pass/fail criteria in a single data grid.
Interactive color analysis plots
The interactive graphics module enables simple, efficient, and detailed data analysis. Users can view data graphically against the correct tolerances without searching through menus. Each graph type is interactive, allowing the user to change data points, illuminants, zoom, orientation, and 2D or 3D views. Instantly evaluate color inconstancy in multiple illuminants with the unique multi-illuminant plot.
