Why Inline Color Measurement is Critical for Paper Manufacturers – Webinar (Free)
Thursday, May 20th | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST |

Producing accurate color on paper can be difficult. Balancing the complexities of the raw materials like chemicals, fillers, dyes, pigments, OBAs and other materials required to produce the pulp is one thing, while also accommodating other customer specifications and operational needs, is another. Not to mention the environmental factors like a dirty environment or product temperature that can impact the color. Properly producing accurate color from pulp to final inspection requires a smart, stable, reliable, and accurate inline color measurement system that provides early warnings of color shifts at critical checkpoints on the production line.

Attend this TAPPI-hosted webinar to hear from X-Rite's inline color experts as well as a guest speaker on how X-Rite's industry-leading inline closed-loop color control solutions gives you the data and automation you need to achieve total color control on your production line(s), improve overall production output and quality, and achieve a quick ROI.
