When it is time to change
Many companies settle for imperfections in their
final product, due to the lack of knowledge and
investment in proper color management process.
Yousung Co. however, understands the importance
of color management and how it can deliver the
competitive difference they needed to win market
“Without a digital color management solution, the process of color measurement and quality control was a constant challenge; especially for those unmeasurable or complex materials,” Yousung Co. said.
Before implementing Datacolor’s spectrophotometers and software solution, Yousung Co. color managers spent many hours using a magnifying glass comparing the colors of various Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) dots less than 0.5mm in diameter. Ultimately, they were unable to make consistent color evaluations and often resulted to best-can-do efforts after 10 batches.
This is when Yousung realized, they must change. They chose Datacolor to help implement a standardized digital color management process that can achieve objective color measurements, first shot color matches and most importantly, meeting their
customer’s high expectations.
Working closely with Datacolor local team of experts, Yousung Co. selected Datacolor SpectraVision and Tools SV quality control software, a unique solution that can provide objective digital measurement of small PVC dot samples.
With the innovative SpectraVision solution, Yousung Co. was able to lower their tolerance from DE 3.0 to DE 0.5, at the same time reduce the batch numbers by 50% to achieve this higher quality matches. This is both time and money saved that allows Yousung Co. to focus on developing new products.
In addition to the SpectraVision’s ability to measure very small sample sizes, the instrument’s high repeatability, tight tolerance, and backward compatibility to Datacolor 800, the high-end benchtop designed for solid color measurements,
were also important factors to Yousung Co. These functionalities ensure consistent measurements across Yousung Co.’s multiple factories, as well as eliminate the need to remaster their standards.
