KURABO provides solutions for color problems with CCM

A computing system relating to colors, from preparation of color recipes and color management, to networking of production lines. We have an extensive lineup for a range of industries.The results of the prepared colors can be managed with a computer, and the system also provides color difference calculation and shipping lot management.

Main functions

CCM, or Computer Color Matching, is a system that measures the reflectivity of a target color with a spectrocolorimeter and calculates the blending ratio of color materials (primary color) which are registered in a computer in advance to reproduce the color.
Since the results of the prepared color can be kept in the computer, customers can meet repeated orders swiftly, not just calculating blending recipes. The system also has a function for controlling color quality such as calculation of color difference and control of shipment lots.

CCM:
Provides skill-less color matching
Allows multi-item and small lot orders
Allows quick delivery
Provides more stable repeat color
Reduces the need for long-term storage of primary colors / color matched products.

Features

System specialized for each industry

For the textile, printing, resin, and paint industries. In 1978, KURABO CCM started with the intention of introducing high technology to our in-house dyeing plant, and now it has been introduced to various industries as an on-site-oriented system.

Various kinds of network connections

Blending recipes can be transferred via a network connected to the automatic dispensing system, AUKITCHEN. It allows rapid dispensing without input errors. We connect to the customer’s host computer with a special order program to establish the CCM system linked with the customer’s production information.
