CM-512M3A Multi-Angle Spectrophotometer

The CM-512m3a is a multi-angle spectrophotometer designed specifically for metallic and pearlescent coatings. Because these coatings change color according to the angles at which they are illuminated and viewed, they are difficult to measure accurately with conventional spectrophotometers. The unique geometry of the CM-512m3a instrument provides a precise, objective method of evaluating and controlling special effects colors throughout the manufacturing process.

The CM-512m3a determines the color difference between highlight and shade colors, and if the shimmer effect in the metallic and pearlescent is meeting manufacturer standards. Regardless of instrument orientation (rotation), the sample is simultaneously illuminated at three angles with eighteen illumination points for each angle. This illumination system creates cones of light at 25°, 45°, and 75°, with the reflected light detected perpendicular to the surface. This keeps the difference between measurements at the same point minimal even if the CM-512m3a is rotated. The bigger the difference in lightness between these angles, the more accentuated the product or object will appear.

The CM-512m3a is compatible with SpectraMagic NX software for color quality control. This software displays data for all three illumination angles simultaneously, as well as line graphs to show the per-angle characteristics specific to multi-angle measurements.

CM-700D/600D Spectrophotometer

The CM-700d/600d spectrophotometer effectively measures the color of an object using a range of user-friendly functions. The handheld instrument is ergonomically designed to fit your hand comfortably and features a color LCD screen. Abundant information is displayed on the screen such as spectral graphs, pseudocolor, and color difference graphs.

Measured colors can also be reproduced as color patches on the screen. This is useful in for checking the level of color difference or to search for colors. The CM-700d/600d is easy to use with dedicated buttons for frequently-used operations such as call up menus or target colors. The menu-driven display allows anyone to operate the unit intuitively.

This instrument is portable and Bluetooth compatible, so all information can be communicated wirelessly to a PC or printer. The unit also contains a large memory capacity, which has the ability to store 1,000 sets of target data and 4,000 sets of measurement data.

This instrument is compatible with SpectraMagic NX software which is easy-to-use and displays multiple views of data results which can be edited.

CA-SA Skin Analysis Software

The CA-SA skin analysis software works in combination with Konica Minolta spectrophotometers to measure the color of skin simultaneously with a numerical display of the Melanin Index, Hemoglobin (Hb) Index, and Hemoglobin oxygen saturation (Hb SO2) Index. When used with our CM-700D/CM-600D spectrophotometer, measurements can be performed simply by applying the instrument lightly to the subject’s skin and pressing a button.

This software is extremely useful in the field of skin research and development due to the increasing demand for these measurements. For example, such measurements are utilized in matching cosmetics and measuring sun tanning effects on skin to prevent damage. This instrument and software combination is ideal for taking highly-accurate readings of melanin pigmentation without it being affected by the skin’s redness.

Data can easily be grouped by examinee; simply preset the number of measurements that are needed per person. Once that number is reached, it begins grouping the next set for the following examinee. Data can be output in CSV text format for further analysis or management using Excel or another spreadsheet program.
