SpectraMagic NX is a colour measurement software package that can be used to interface with Konica Minolta instruments and provide extended reporting and analysis of colour and colour difference.
Whether your colour control involves incoming raw materials, in process production or outbound colour critical goods and materials, SpectraMagic™NX makes it easy to inspect and control colour.
Utilize pre-defined screen templates for Pass/Fail assessment, statistical process control, or R&D analysis. SpectraMagic™NX can deliver exactly the output for your needs.
SpectraMagic™NX can be connected to all Konica Minolta Spectrophotometer and Chroma-Meter models and is suitable for all up to date Windows OS systems.
