New Standox Genius IQ adds colour effect identification

Standox has launched a new generation of its Genius IQ colour spectrophotometer to help bodyshops cope with the growing number of effect colours.

Around two thirds of passenger cars in Europe are now finished in these materials, and Genius IQ sets new standards in their accurate and rapid identification. In addition to the familiar colour measurement function, the new device can also measure the type of effect.

The combination of these functions makes digital colour measurement even more effective and efficient. This is important for a smooth workflow from colour identification to paint application, where the colour and the paint effect play a vital role. If one of these two factors is not right, it can be impossible to get the correct finish.

Modifications have been made to the design of the Genius IQ spectrophotometer and its improved features. These prevent scattered light affecting readings, and make the device’s light source more intense. The device also features an easy-to-use coloured touch screen with protective film, and a simple menu with intuitively arranged symbols. Car brands can also now be selected before the measurement. Communication with the computer and the Standowin colour search software from Standox remains as simple as before, but some Genius functions in the software have been improved.

This makes selecting and analysing the results from the spectrophotometer even easier for the refinisher. In day-to-day business, the refinisher will benefit from faster and more efficient identification of even the most unusual colours thanks to this easy-to-operate and future-proof device.
