Features of Presto color matching cabinet

Metamerism is a major problem that is faced by a lot of manufacturers regarding their products. It is a phenomenon that makes the dyed or colored products appear different under different lighting conditions. This happens due to the fact that different lights emit different wavelengths. The wavelength of the light emitted by the sun is different from the wavelength of the light emitted by artificial lights. As a result, the colors of the dyed or colored products appear different when seen under these two light sources. This problem is particularly acute in the case of the textile and clothing industry where the colors of the fabrics appear different under various lighting conditions. In order to solve this problem, manufacturers have to carefully match the color of their dyes and pigments with the intended light source. Otherwise, they risk losing customers due to dissatisfaction with the appearance of their products.
