Measuring color as part of a quality control or quality assurance program is a complex topic, because these days, color consistency is an important component of product quality. High-quality products are therefore produced within extremely narrow color tolerances. As a result, color deviations can be quite expensive. Color corrections take a lot of time, reduce efficiency, and produce off-spec material, and are therefore unacceptably expensive. A complaint usually costs more than a complete color measuring system. In an era of quality management systems and certification in accordance with DIN, ISO, or other requirements and directives, a company can hardly afford not to check the color consistency of its dyed and lacquered plastic, glass, or powder products. The naked eye is often insufficient. An objective production-related measurement technology must be employed.
