Color Balancer Quality Controlled with FlexiForce

Custom force sensors help a color technology company quality assure their measurement devices.

X-Rite Uses Custom Force Sensor for Product Testing

Background: X-Rite is the global leader in color science and technology. Their expertise is in selecting, measuring, formulating, communicating and matching color.

Challenge: X-Rite’s MA98 spectrophotometer is a multi-angle tool which precisely measures the color of metallic, pearlescent and other complex special effect finishes. In order to measure color and finishes accurately, it is important that the light beam from the spectrophotometer is at the specified angle to the measurement surface.

Solution: Tekscan created a FlexiForce™ custom force sensor containing three sensing areas to ensure the device is balanced on the surface, therefore providing accurate, repeatable sample positioning. By measuring the force at three points, the sensor ensures that the beam is at the correct angle. The thin, lightweight, customizable design of the FlexiForce sensor combined with its repeatability (typically ± 2.5%) helped X-Rite develop an effective color measurement device.
