Colour is one of the easiest and most effective ways to stimulate a customer's attention to a product and the brand behind it

Wherever you need to communicate colour - from idea through design, development, production to a final quality control - , our expertise can help install traceable and scalable colour data solutions for applications from raw materials through to finished products. To match colours and meet colour quality standards more efficiently, Konica Minolta offers exceptionally precise measuring instruments and software for use in a laboratory or directly in production.

Our spectrophotometers, glossmeters, controlled lighting solutions, and high-performance software allow users to accurately evaluate and match the colour and appearance of solid and effect paints, in a more streamlined process internally as well as in a supply chain.
