ColorCARE® evolution – The digital step to perfect color matching

ColorCARE® stands for Color Controlled Accuracy and REliability and is a control and early warning system that ensures perfect color matching. ColorCARE® is used in industries where the objective evaluation of colors and textures is crucial. 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.

The latest generation, ColorCARE® evolution, moves the tool to the cloud and offers multiple options for easy data sharing and data access. All data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere and with any device. Additionally, the new version comes with unique functions such as a highly flexible dashboard, the parallel handling of multiple data containers with different settings and various, connected diagrams.
