Officially launched in January 2010, KMSA will be showcasing its new CM-5 for the first time at a major US 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 quite simply the easiest and virtually mistake free color measurement instrument ever developed," said Randy Klimek, New Product Project 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 IFT 2010. 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 offered are indices for tomato, French fry, peanut butter and coffee.

New this year, KMSA will be hosting in booth workshops at booth #6481. Application specialists will be on hand to present and answer questions related to food color measurement utilizing the CM-5 and also about our Food Color Indexing Technology used in conjunction with a CR-400/410 Colorimeter.
