MASTER of colours
A NEW ERA OF MASTERBATCH DIGITALISATION
Innovation is key to the continued and progressive success of a business. In any industry today, it is important to keep up with the dynamics of the markets and the ever-increasing demands of our customers.
The Gabriel-Chemie Group therefore focuses on investing in development and research. The company bundles its resources and competency to take further important steps towards digitization and Industry 4.0.
FINDING FAST & EASY THE APPROPRIATE COLOUR MASTERBATCH
To guide customers through the product discovery process faster and more efficiently, the browser-based and mobile application Master of Colours has been developed. It is the first tool to be released as part of the Master of Batch platform by Gabriel-Chemie.
The digital tool enables many daily colour requests to be answered within a very short time.
SMART COLOUR SEARCH ALGORITHM
In cooperation with the US company X-Rite, we have created a tool that answers any colour requests in the shortest possible time.
The intelligent search-algorithm finds suitable colour masterbatch based on common colour systems or standardized colour references such as RAL.
Dosage, temperature stability and light-authenticity are just a few processing parameters that can also be filtered.
GABi FINDS, WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR
With GABi the users also have a virtual assistant at their side. GABi leads through several steps of the colour finding process and represents the personification of an intelligent colour masterbatch search engine. She searches colour masterbatch that corresponds to the previously defined or the next possible colour which can then be added to the users personal colour list (similar to a shopping list).
COLOUR MEASUREMENTS BY APP
In addition to the functions of the browser-based application the mobile app is also able to recognize colours using the X-Rite Color-Eye® System via a smartphone camera.
HOW IT WORKS
For colour measurements, the mobile app accesses the smartphone camera and makes it possible to scan and analyse the colour of any object.
The Color-Eye calibration card enables accurate colour measurement on Apple and selected Android phones, removing variation caused by lighting and camera differences.
After successful colour analysis, GABi shows corresponding colour masterbatch products, which can be added in the personal colour list by the users.
The app is available for Android and Apple devices and is completely free. As with the desktop version, you also have to register online for using the app. After verification, the user receives the colour calibration card including step-by-step instructions.
