What is a colorimeter? What is it used for?
Colorimeter is an instrument used to measure the color difference of objects. It can also be called chroma meter, and pigment colorimeter.
Automatically compare the color difference between the template and the inspected object, and output CIE_ Lab three groups of data and △ E, △ L, △ a, △ b four groups of color difference data after color comparison.
Budget. According to the actual budget of the company or yourself, whether you want to buy imported or domestic products. If you think you have enough budget and are interested in imported products, you can consider imported products. After all, it is not your fault to have more money! If you are interested in domestic color difference meters, you can also learn more. After so many years of development, the performance of domestic color difference meters is completely comparable to that of imported color difference meters. More importantly, the price is much more favorable than that of imported color difference meters, and the after-sales time of imported color difference meters is long and the cost is high, which is also the reason why more and more enterprises choose domestic color difference meters in recent years.
Performance configuration of colorimeter:
1. You should know which kind of color difference instrument is suitable for your industry. Each industry has different requirements for color difference accuracy, namely △ Eab. If △ Eab is between 0-1, you must choose an instrument with higher accuracy; These are generally rubber and plastic, paint and paint industries; If you do not need high accuracy, you can also choose a general color difference instrument.
2. You need to know the shape of your products. At present, the test aperture of the general colorimeter is 4mm or 8mm; If your product is cambered or the size is very small, you need to consider the problem of test aperture; Of course, it can also be specially ordered as follows:
Large Aperture (LAV): 2.54 cm (1 inch)
Medium Aperture (MAV): 1.5 cm (0.6 in.)
Small Aperture (SAV): 0.75 cm x 1.0 cm (0.3 in x 0.4 in)
VSAV: 0.3 cm x 0.8 cm (0.12 in x 0.31 in)
3. Whether there is national metrological certification. This instrument is a measuring instrument. It is necessary to know whether the product can meet the national measurement requirements. Otherwise, if there is a dispute, your data can not be referenced.
In general, for a color difference meter worth buying, there are many factors worth considering besides the above main factors.
