With the sph ipm spectrophotometer, you opt for a continuous monitoring process and thus reduce high reject costs. Colour deviations are recognized and reported immediately.

Measurements can be taken without delay. Due to the high-precision spectral colour measurement in the process, the complex laboratroy analyzes can be dispensed.

The sph ipm spectrophotometer is equipped with a modern 7 “touchscreen and color display and enables simple operation through a logical menu navigation. The display allows the display of measured values, curves with progress, as well as status and alarm notifications to review and compare your products. 

The sph ipm offers all options for simple system integration using various interfaces. You can extend the one-year warranty by signing a full ColorLite maintenance contract. Minimize downtimes and ensure a smooth production process.
