AkzoNobel combines digital tools for colour-matching
A new standard in advanced colour-matching is available to vehicle bodyshops after AkzoNobel combined two of its tools into a single system.
The new offering combines the company’s Automatchic hand-held spectrophotometer with its MIXIT digital colour retrieval technology. Now known as Automatchic in MIXIT, the system is said to create a single, seamless workflow which allows customers to precisely identify any colour from a database of over two million.
Peter Tomlinson, director of AkzoNobel’s automotive and speciality coatings business, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to help our vehicle refinish customers access digital colour technology and gain maximum advantage from our expertise.
“Our huge cloud database of more than two million colours means we can provide the perfect colour match and formula, optimised for any individual vehicle. With Automatchic in MIXIT, customers can now measure and match colour with superior accuracy even faster, making it a valuable asset for any vehicle refinish bodyshop.”
Tailor-made to streamline operations, Automatchic in MIXIT’s ability to improve both accuracy and speed helps to increase profitability and throughput while reducing waste. This is part of AkzoNobel’s commitment to deliver 100% digital colour solutions for its vehicle refinishes customers.
