Manufacturers of Colour Assessment Equipment.
VeriVide, the UK company that has been a world leader in colour and appearance assessment since the 1960s, will be at Techtextil 2017 discussing the latest developments in its game-changing DigiEye non-contact, digital colour measurement system.
DigiEye is proven in use in many industry sectors including food and pharmaceuticals, and specified by textile and associated manufacturers and retailers such asAdidas, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Marks & Spencer, Heathcoat Fabrics andIkea.
Its advanced yet easy-to-use technologycan be an invaluable tool for designers, manufacturers and retailers in the technical textile and nonwoven sectors.
DigiEye can assess the colour and appearance of ‘difficult’ surfaces and textures and as production technology advances will increasingly be the only effective means of doing so.
To mention just a few examples, DigiEye can be easily configured to assess tapes, belts, ropes, nets, membranes, multi-layered composites, ‘smart’ textiles, recycled materials, coated textiles, technical safety fabrics including airbags, parachute and medical fabrics, and advanced packaging materials.
The list could be much, much longer. VeriVide’s confidence in DigiEye’s super-power is summed up by VeriVide’s Paul Dakin: ‘Over the years we’ve developed DigiEye for a lot of industry sectors and has yet to meet a substance or material, solid or liquid, any size or shape, that DigiEye can’t assess. And it can provide better, quicker data than any other method.’
DigiEye can be particularly cost effective for innovative textile designers and technologists, and manufacturers wanting to push back technology barriers. Here, an advantage isn’t just the DigiEye system itself but the VeriVide expertise that created it.
‘The whole point about innovation is that it can take you into new areas where traditional methods of imaging, measurement and quality control may be too slow and inaccurate, if they work at all,’ adds Russell Thorpe. ‘The offer we make to anyone in technical textiles is simple: tell us what colour or appearance data you want, and we supply you with a customised DigiEye system that delivers it.
DigiEye users have a variety of software options - for example, DigiGrade for fastness assessment, DigiPix for advanced colour communication, and QC Matrix, a self–contained quality control package. We also have the new DigiView 3.0 software with swatch move tool that copies a colour standard and allows this to be moved within the image in order to judge adjacent blocks of colour. DigiView 3.0 allows remote colour assessment of colour and forms part of the new e-submit process now being adopted by major retailers.
