ColorMatch square

Colibri® ColorMatch is efficient, powerful and easy to use. Using a proprietary algorythm it ensures accurate matching of colour and opacity on opaque, translucent and transparent materials as well as metallic effects while reducing the number of correction steps. Users can  easily switch between several base materials helping to save time and resources in all stages of the matching process.

Colibri® ColorMatch features and benefits include:

  • User-friendly, intuitive and seamless interface
  • Highly efficient matching of opaque, translucent and transparent colors
  • Recipe calculation on different substrates
  • Vary base material as required, using only one colorant library
  • Simplifies the use of leftover materials, reducing waste and costs
  • Customization of functionality and feature settings to match your application and workflow
  • An integrated “Expert System”, allowing pigment pre-selection according to application requirements to simplify use of parameters such as light fastness or other criterias.
  • One standard recipe to calculate every possible colour recipe combination
  • Automatic database update with every change in colour strength, allowing for colour fluctuations in base materials
  • User management, access rights and permissions management using existing enterprise IT management tools
  • Compatibility with all Konica Minolta as well as the majority of other brand spectrophotometers
