ColorCARE® – Tailored success is no coincidence

The ColorCARE® Toolbox is a colorimetric software for the organization, evaluation and graphical representation of color and texture data and allows the automation of customer-specific measurement processes. The ColorCARE® Toolbox is used in industries where the objective evaluation of colors and textures is crucial.

ColorCARE® stands for Color Controlled Accuracy and REliability and is a control and early warning system that ensures perfect color matching. This modern software allows a continuous check of the color harmony between bodies and add-on parts, such as tailgates, rear-view mirrors or door handles. Linking the color measurement with the analysis software allows for representing the data graphically and thus can show deviations reliably and early. Subsequently, the color can be adjusted according to the customer's needs. In this way, subsequent corrections and associated costs are avoided. The color data are supplemented by data describing effect finishes such as sparkling.

With the ColorCARE® Toolbox, we can display our workflows accurately and application-specifically. This allows us to work more efficiently and easily.

The ColorCARE® Toolbox

The quality control tool for color and texture data

  • Numerous options for the organization, evaluation and graphic representation of various color and texture data
  • Compatible with all standard colorimeters used in the industry
  • Comprehensive and efficient data management
  • Various ways to export data to as well as import data from other applications
  • A responsive and customizable graphical user interface
  • A proprietary programming language enables automation of highly customized quality control processes

Development and IT-technical implementation of mathematical-physical models and methods for colorimetric quality control and assurance. Moreover, continuous development and implementation of additional data types, such as date for texture.

Support and optimization of the customers’ application process to ensure maximum color harmony between car bodies and add-on parts. The ColorCARE® Toolbox allows the implementation of highly tailored functionalities, so-called macros, for an exact mapping of customer processes onto the software side.

Testing and evaluation of colorimeters and other measurement devices as well as recommendations for their application. Moreover, extensive development of drivers for these measurement devices to allow for an efficient communication with the ColorCARE® software.

Training in the field of colorimetry and in the usage of the ColorCARE® Toolbox. In addition, training in the area of macro programming, to enable users to program macro functionalities on their own.
