RAMSEY, N.J. - Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the unveiling of its state of the art CM-5 Benchtop Spectrophotometer to the Brazilian market at this year's Food Ingredients Brazil 2012 show at the Expo Centre Norte in Sao Paulo, Brazil September 18-20, 2012.
KMSA will be participating in the Food Ingredients Brazil 2012 show for its very first year. This will also be the first time the CM-5 will be showcased at a major Brazilian food show. This next generation color measurement instrument has quickly become one of the most talked about and fastest selling instruments worldwide. With over 50 years of industry experience, Konica Minolta designed the CM-5 to meet the highest standards for the food industry and for the actual unit operator.
The CM-5 is a full featured, highly accurate and a totally standalone instrument that does not require a PC. The CM-5 can display everything from numeric data, spectral graphs, and colorimetric plots, making a PC for basic color control a thing of the past. The versatility of the top port design can monitor the measurement of fresh fruits & vegetables to prepared and frozen foods. It also integrates a sliding body panel to expose its large transmittance chamber capable of measuring films and liquids.
"What sets the CM-5 apart is that it's the easiest and virtually mistake free color measurement instrument ever developed," said Joseph Esteves, Brazilian Sales Manager for Konica Minolta Sensing. The CM-5 features yet another industry first for Konica Minolta, who developed a cutting edge on-screen wizard that instructs the user step by step on how to take a measurement, making it the ideal instrument for even non-experts.
In addition to the CM-5, Konica Minolta Sensing's Food Color Indexing Technology (FCIT) will also be on display this year at FI Brazil 2012. FCIT is designed to save time and cut costs by providing the user with only information pertinent to their application. An index simplifies color readings by presenting the user with one number to base a decision on instead of a multitude of data to sort through. Currently being showcased are indices for tomato, French fry, peanut butter and coffee. However dozens of other indices are available for various foods and food related applications.
Application specialists will be present at stand number 84 to answer questions about food color measurement utilizing the CM-5 and also about our Food Color Indexing Technology used in conjunction with a CR-400/410 Colorimeter.
