Paper Abstract

Monitoring product color has become an increasingly important part of production. Both colorimeters and spectrometers offer the potential for automating this process. Color measurement may be needed to match all items to the same color, as in production of colored plastic caps. Sorting almonds from debris can be performed by using color as an indicator. Systems for both of these applications are discussed and compared to illustrate examples of bringing color measurement technology onto the factory floor.
