Think Stothard –
The Colour & Appearance Measurement Specialists.
Think Stothard provide instruments and solutions that duplicate
how our eyes see colour and perceive appearance. They measure your
product's colour and overall appearance and give numerical values
that correlate to what you see. These objective measurements optimise
the confidence of your quality decisions. Think Stothard has expertise,
experience and a range of quality manufactures and solutions to
ensure that you have the right instrument and solution for your
colour measurement and appearance application (s).
We start by working and evaluating your product's application and
then will specify the target colour and appearance of your products.
Once this has been completed we will assign acceptance levels to
ensure our instrumentation knows what a pass and fail is with quite
a degree of accuracy. We will then find a suitable solution and
instrument, whether it be a portable instrument for measuring raw
materials, a bench top instrument that will be based in a laboratory
or an online instrument that is built into your production line.
Most of our instruments and solutions include colour measurement
techiques as measuring colour forms part of the overal appearance
of your product.
We are available to create custom made product holders that will
enable the most difficult and non-uniform products to be easily
