GretagMacbeth has released a new suite of colour control software for colour matching (formulation) and quality control.

Color iMatch and Color iQC can integrate with existing systems in a single facility or entire supply chain, including CAD and dispensing systems.

"Our new Color i systems let [customers] easily share data and quickly collaborate on colour development with suppliers and customers anywhere in the world," says Richard Knapp, product manager - colour and appearance business unit.

The suite is said to enhance productivity by speeding colour development in the laboratory and throughout the supply chain. Optional 'Professional' versions include an enhanced on-screen sample simulator with appearance attributes such as texturing.
