Konica Minolta Sensing Launches NC-1 In-Line Measurement System for Monitoring Color Quality
RAMSEY, N.J., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the launch of its latest color measurement solution; the innovative NC-1 non-contact in-line system. Expertly crafted and engineered to monitor and control color, the new system provides real-time analysis of color for quality and process control.
The NC-1 system's high-speed and accuracy are important features for indispensable color critical applications that require a high consistency of color quality. Designed to withstand harsh plant conditions and production settings, NC-1 is geared towards closed loop applications in food, plastic, textile, building materials, and medical industries.
The launch of NC-1 further complements Konica Minolta's line of renowned handheld and benchtop color measurement equipment. Continuous and reliable color measurement is made easy with the system's innovative technology, advanced software, and easy-to-operate touch-screen controls.
Designed to optimize production quality control, NC-1 brings high productivity and cost savings. The powerful NC-1 quickly detects out-of-spec color with measurement speeds as high as 20-times per second, allowing operators to strengthen their operating efficiencies.
Dan Randall, National Sales Manager, Konica Minolta Sensing explains, "NC-1 in-line color control provides the manufacturer with the unique opportunity to correct a color problem before it gets to the end of the production line. The NC-1 reads color at an extremely rapid rate, real-time, and without contact with the product. This real-time data becomes the trigger for process control, eliminating waste, and improving product quality with real bottom-line savings to the plant."
NC-1 non-contact in-line measurement system is available in the U.S. and Canada, backed by Konica Minolta's world-class reliable service and support.
