Technidyne ColorTouch®X 45

A powerful color spectrophotometer designed for measuring color/color difference/TAPPI brightness/whiteness, the ColorTouch® X 45 also features an integrated touchscreen, advanced data analysis and sample tracking.


The only 45°/0° color spectrophotometer for the pulp and paper industry

The ColorTouch X 45 brings together a powerful set of tools to meet the demands of the brightness, color, color difference and fluorescence markets.  

In addition to these traditional applications, the expanded wavelength range of the ColorTouch X 45 provides a higher level of accuracy and capabilities than its competitors.  

Color spectrophotometer applications

A color spectrophotometer captures and evaluates color, offering an easy way for manufacturers to ensure that the colors they are using meet their specifications and remain consistent.  

They are particularly useful in the paper and pulp industries and can be used for everything from developing appealing flexible packaging to manufacturing hygiene tissues with good visual optics. Find out more about the main uses for spectrophotometers 

An advanced and easy-to-use color spectrophotometer

No other instrument in the market today can match the ColorTouch X 45 for capabilities, functionality and quality. From easy-to-use touchscreen operation to a full range of tests in accordance with TAPPI standards, this is your go-to color spectrophotometer. Features include: 

Touchscreen operation
