Quality Control and colour formulation of solid, metallic, pearlescent, and effect paints in automotive
Get accurate and stable results on curved surfaces with metallic effect coatings used in automotive exterior thanks to the new, patented double-path illumination system. Measure front and rear bumpers, vehicle mirror bodies or door handles fast and repeatedly. Compact and lightweight, the vertical shape of the CM-M6 enables easy positioning, while the high-resolution back-illuminated colour display is readable even in the lowest ambient lighting conditions.
The Rhopoint TAMS™ can be used to measure a surface prior to and throughout the coating process. Using the data about the surface as raw metal, pressed part, E-Coat, etc., will allow the paint line to better predict the final quality of a part, test remedial measures, and optimise processes ultimately saving time and waste.
The Rhopoint IQ-S close-tolerance glossmeter can measure the gloss of surfaces inside the automobile. Gloss control can be used to reduce distracting reflections inside the cabin and to improve the consistency of surface appearance. By using Rhopoint IQ-S instrument, it is possible to measure of haze, reflected image quality, orange peel and other surface conditions, with a single instrument. A small receptor head glossmeter is also available for small or curved surfaces.
Development teams can easily benchmark competitor paintwork in a consistent manner using the reporting templates of the Rhopoint TAMS to assess the finish quality of each panel and the overall harmony between all panels.
Understanding the competitor product is an essential step in positioning the product and the brand in the market whilst maintaining an effective cost to performance ratio.
Konica Minolta group company EINES manufactures vision systems for inspection of paint, sealing, and glazing, allowing customers to automate and expedite common inspection tasks on the automotive assembly line. EINES also offers flush and gap inspection solutions and their solutions are inspecting over 8million cars a year.
When measuring interior coated surfaces, typically a d:8° sphere-based spectrophotometer is the best solution for any automotive colour quality control applications. The CM-26dG, features a built-in ISO-compliant 60° gloss sensor, ergonomic design, large display, and process-focussed features such as the Job Control (image-based workflow feature). It is also a close tolerance instrument by design, making it an ideal solution for sites or supply chains requiring large numbers of traceable measuring devices.
Konica Minolta, along with group company Radiant Vision Systems and partner Rhopoint Instruments, offer leading technology and turnkey solutions for R&D and quality control on the production line. Our experienced teams can help you to implement measurement and control solutions for automotive interior and exterior throughout development, manufacturing, and quality control, all supported by a global sales and support network.
