Axalta Launches The New Acquire Quantum EFX Spectrophotometer

Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, introduces its fifth-generation spectrophotometer, the Acquire Quantum EFX, which packs innovative technology into a lighter, faster, and highly accurate unit that is capable of reading metallic, pearl, sparkle and effect colours, and more.

The ergonomically advanced Acquire™ Quantum EFX Spectrophotometer packs innovative technology into a smaller, highly intuitive colour measuring tool. The unit is almost half the size of its predecessor to enable comfortable, one-handed operation. Its aperture is also smaller by 20 per cent for improved accuracy on curved surfaces and hard-to-reach places.

The Quantum EFX has top-mounted high res full colour touch screen with 180° rotation capabilities, suitable for left and right hand users. The screen is also calibrated for high visibility even in bright outdoor light and can be used while wearing gloves. The unit also integrates seamlessly into the Axalta’s branded colour retrieval software for automotive repair, designed to improve productivity and efficiency of bodyshops.

“’The Acquire Quantum is lighter and smaller, in fact half the size of its predecessor allowing for easy one-handed operation,” said John Nettleton, Axalta Product and Colour Manager for Australia and New Zealand. “It fully integrates with our colour retrieval software and is more efficient at matching colour, which translates to improved productivity and profitability.”

The unit comes with a “smart cradle” for convenient charging and direct connection to a PC, without the need to plug in or remove cables. The Acquire Quantum EFX is also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing users to transfer data directly to Axalta’s signature branded colour retrieval software.
