What are the characteristics of a color evaluation box?

It is important, as the perception of the human eye can be transmitted from millions of colors, which is interesting, in how each individual perceives it and according to different perceptions, resulting in costly color-related problems for manufacturers and suppliers. Therefore, with the color evaluation box, it allows you to assess the shades of objects, and express them accurately to other people, using a consistent language and standard.ย 

The color evaluation box is a tool that has attractive, suitable and applicable characteristics, for all factories that need to perform color contrast tests, such as: graphic arts, photography, textile, printing, plastics, ceramics, laboratories, etc., that want to maintain the balance of color and quality, from different light sources.ย 


The appreciation of colors, through an evaluation box, allows quantifying the attributes that have the samples, which allow to be appreciated thanks to the qualities or characteristics they have, which are:

  • Automatic transformation between light sources, different vision with the same color.
  • The most common sizes are 50ร—50 cm, 60ร—60 cm, 75ร—75 cm, 120ร—120 cm, and up to 150ร—150 cm.
  • They do not warm or blink and allow for rapid evaluation and allow for quick and reliable sample evaluation.
  • It consumes little energy, no heat emission and efficient lighting.
  • Comfortable size to use for laboratory or production line.ย 
  • They have different lights, and are controlled by a microprocessor LCD screen that shows each lighting usage time.
  • The buttons control the individual set of lights.ย 
  • All lights can be turned on at the same time according to the user’s needs.

Therefore, all electrical mechanisms used are low energy consumption and heat reproduction, and what is appreciated from the samples, will be as natural as what is appreciated under the natural color.

Techniques for use

When adding a color evaluation box to the work team, you have to take into account the appropriate size, it will depend a lot on the sample to be captured. Therefore, techniques of use are used, so that the sample is obviously the best, which has much to do with the position in which the products are placed, inside the boxes. Thus, it is advisable to add at least 10 centimeters to each side of the object, since with a piece of 15 centimeters, it is preferable to be made with a box of at least 50 x 50cm, without being too tight and difficult to work, in this way the user gets the best results.

Likewise, another of the techniques has a lot to do with the participation of light, because they have to be intense enough, so that the effect that occurs on the object, is better distributed on the piece you want to visualize.

In addition, it can be noted, that lighting normally influences with artificial light sources, resulting in more detailed images, without shadows, with a uniform enveloping light, ideal for displaying samples, such as jewelry pieces, metallic pieces, footwear, among others; since it can be achieved in most cases, which stand out without lighting points and allow to see the object in great detail.ย
