June 16, 2022

It’s been a long, isolating wait, but tradeshows and conferences are back in action. FABTECH Canada, which happens every two years, finally returned to the Toronto Congress Centre, June 14 to 16, attracting hundreds of industry professionals from the metal fabrication, welding and finishing sectors. The show floor was bustling with innovative product and technology demonstrations and networking.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
