High-precision spectrophotometer with option for ISO compliant gloss sensor and stability check

 

The CM-36d series Spectrophotometer is a high-precision and high-reliability benchtop instrument capable of measuring colour either in reflectance or transmittance, ideally suited to a wide range of applications such as Plastics, Paints, Ceramics, Chemicals, etc. 
 
For the first time ever, Konica Minolta Sensing has integrated an ISO 2813 compliant 60° gloss sensor inside a benchtop spectrophotometer (CM-36dG & CM-36dGV only), to simultaneously measure colour and gloss. As both values are measured and reported together, operator errors are reduced, the Quality Control workflow can be streamlined, and equipment and maintenance costs saved.
 
The CM-36d series utilizes the patented and proven Numerical UV Control (NUVC), unsurpassed technology for UV adjustments when measuring samples that contain optical brighteners such as pulp, paper, textiles or chemicals.
 
Several new features have been included to improve the user experience: status LEDs provide clear visual indicator of current configuration, a camera preview system for sample positioning and reporting, and versatile port alignment allowing the device to be used horizontally or rotated 90° to measure e.g. powdery materials in “Top-port” style.
 
Konica Minolta’s patented technologies assure the highest accuracy and repeatability levels for this class of instrument. Konica Minolta’s renowned accuracy and stability is supported by our latest innovation “Wavelength Analysis and Adjustment” (WAA) to give customers the ability to check and adjust the CM-36d series during calibration, assuring that the instrument is in perfect condition.  

FEATURES

FEATURES
  • Two in one colour and gloss measurement (CM-36dG and CM-36dGV)
Increase the efficiency of appearance characterisation with simultaneous measurement of both colour and 60​° gloss. Saves time and cost whilst keeping measurement data for both parameters in the same file.
 
  • Sample viewer camera 
​Reduce sample presentation errors by previewing the area to be measured on screen in SpectraMagic™ NX.
 
  • Efficient sample presentation
Threaded inserts and alignment indicators on the measurement aperture allow the operator to create custom jigs to accurately and repeatably position samples.
 
  • Additional measurement aperture
​Additional LMAV aperture size of 16mm to offer increased versatility between 8 and 30mm Ø.
 
  • Numerical UV control
The patented Numerical UV Control method provides UV control by using proprietary calculations to combine the results from flashes of two xenon lamps: one with full UV energy, the other with UV energy removed by a UV-cut off filter (either 400 nm or 420 nm). This method eliminates the need for lengthy filter position adjustment processes, and enables UV adjustment by Whiteness Index, Tint, Brightness, or UV profile.
 
  • “Wavelength Analysis & Adjustment” – (WAA)

Assures unsurpassed long-term measurement stability and can keep measurements stable even for changes in temperature or environment conditions over time.

WAA allows the operator to easily distinguish whether the instrument itself is the cause of measurement differences, reducing troubleshooting time and providing improved certainty within supply chains.
 

  • Onboard status display and measurement button
A LED indicator panel built into the instrument that displays current measurement settings at a glance. A measurement button has been incorporated into the panel to expedite the sample presentation and measurement process.​
