AkzoNobel Combines Digital Tools To Improve Color-Matching

The new offering couples the company's Automatchic hand-held spectrophotometer with its MIXIT digital color retrieval technology.

AkzoNobel has combined two of its most innovative tools into a single system. The new offering couples the company’s Automatchic hand-held spectrophotometer with its MIXIT digital color retrieval technology. Now known as Automatchic in MIXIT, the system creates a single, seamless workflow which allows customers to precisely identify any color from an ever-expanding database of more than 2 million, says the company.

“We’re always looking for new ways to help our vehicle refinish customers access digital color technology and gain maximum advantage from our expertise,” said Peter Tomlinson, director of AkzoNobel’s Automotive and Specialty Coatings business.

“Our huge cloud database of more than 2 million colors means we can provide the perfect color match and formula, optimized for any individual vehicle. With Automatchic in MIXIT, customers can now measure and match color with superior accuracy even faster, making it a valuable asset for any vehicle refinish body shop.”

Made to streamline operations, Automatchic in MIXIT’s ability to improve both accuracy and speed helps to increase profitability and throughput while reducing waste, says the company. This is part of AkzoNobel’s commitment to deliver 100 percent digital color solutions for its vehicle refinishes customers.
