To improve colour identification, Spies Hecker offers refinishers a new daylight lamp with LED technology. By simulating different light conditions and light intensities, the new lamp can help refinishers identify deviations in colour matching for solid and effect paints.
ColorSpot, the new daylight lamp from Spies Hecker, can be used for almost anything, from colour comparison with colour swatches and sample panels to damage assessment and checking freshly painted surfaces for dust inclusions. Dietmar Wegener, Spies Hecker Colour Management Specialist for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, says, “ColorSpot provides refinishers with a tool that will reveal even the slightest metamerism and effect differences.”
Three levels of light intensity
The intensity of the energy-saving LEDs can be set to three different levels. Light level 1 makes it possible to compare light solid and effect colours accurately. Light level 2 is suitable for medium to light and mid-toned effect colours. And for darker effect colours, light level 3 shows the nuances helping to achieve an optimal colour and effect match.
“In addition to bright daylight, you can set the lamp to a warmer, but still white, evening light. Equipped with this tool, refinishers will be able to identify colour differences, quickly and reliably,” Wegener says.
A powerful battery ensures the cordless lamp can be used for long periods. The battery can be charged on its base station. “Due to the low energy consumption of the LEDs, the battery can handle a long day’s work. Thanks to its minimal weight and ergonomic shape, ColorSpot is comfortable to handle and will support refinishers’ work,” Wegener adds.
For more accurate and easy colour identification and a longer battery life, ColorSpot from Spies Hecker assists professional refinishers with colour matching in the bodyshop.
