AkzoNobel Launches Digital Color-Matching System

Digital Color Matching System

AkzoNobel's digital color matching system allows body shops to precisely measure and match the existing color on any area of a vehicle.

AkzoNobel has launched a digital system that allows body shops to precisely measure and match the existing color on any area of a vehicle. It consists of two key elements: 1) Automatchic Vision, the latest generation of AkzoNobel’s hand-held device that digitally analyzes color, and 2) Automatchic Smart Search color retrieval software that provides the optimum matching color formula. The system is also intuitive and easy to operate, so that only minimal training is needed to achieve accurate measurements quickly. Color readings obtained using Automatchic Vision easily translated into the best matching color formula by the Smart Search software, and the system has been extensively tested with customers and feedback has been extremely positive, according to AkzoNobel.
