Ci6x Series Portable Spectrophotometers


Improving Color Management at Every Link of the Supply Chain

The Ci6x family of handheld spectrophotometers — Ci60, Ci62, Ci64 & Ci64UV is a performance-driven solution for managing color at any stage of production, and gives manufacturers a whole new level of confidence in their color data, regardless of where or when the measurements are collected.

The Ci6x Series creates opportunities to develop a consistent color monitoring program, efficiently manage process quality control, and reduce operating costs.

A Versatile Package for a Wide Range of Color Applications
The many options within the product family give operations of all sizes the ability to build in a stable measurement system that delivers repeatable performance and increased product yield. This makes the Ci6x Series a reliable solution for a wide range of industries and applications:

Commercial Coatings: The need to meet specific color codes and regulations requires repeatable color measurement. The Ci6x Series provides the consistency demanded to ensure batch-to-batch color conformity.

Plastics: Batch consistency—from raw material through finished product—often varies depending on material supplier and process conditions. The Ci6x Series can monitor the color impact of shifts in process variables, while X-Rite application software storing color data that can be shared among the supply network to ensure color accuracy.

Automotive: Whether OEM interior, aftermarket parts, or second- and third-tier supplier components, color accuracy is an absolute must. The Ci6x system allows manufacturers at every level to achieve consistent readings. The ability to simultaneously measure SCI/SCE further enhances the quality control process.

Textiles: While materials and fabrics may appear similar at first glance, those that contain optical brightening agents (OBA) may result in a much different look under varied lighting conditions. Available calibrated UV enhanced illumination controls the UV/visible balance, enabling long-term, consistent measurement of optically bright samples.

Home Furnishings: Different materials—wood, paint, plastic, metal, fabric—and a wide variety of colors, make repeatable color conformance critical. The Ci6x family is able to read a wide range of materials and provide a benchmark measurement that can be used at each step of the production or assembly process.
