At the summit, X-Rite will demonstrate the latest color measurement and appearance solutions, helping companies digitize the design-to-production process, shorten the color approval process and support sustainability efforts.

At AATCC’s 2023 Textile Discovery Summit, X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC, will demonstrate the latest color and appearance solutions designed to help companies create and share digital materials across teams and suppliers to streamline the design to manufacturing process. In addition, X-Rite will highlight how an end-to-end digital textile color program can cut production time in half by expediting color approvals, formulation, and color evaluations. The result is an efficient digital process that saves time, money and reduces a company’s carbon footprint. 

“Appearance technology has evolved making it more accessible and easier than ever for brands and suppliers to create and share digital material libraries,” said Matthew Adby, Product Management Director, X-Rite. “At Textile Discovery Summit, attendees can learn how X-Rite digital color and appearance solutions help designers to accurately visualize and iterate on their designs, while sharing the same digital material throughout operations and the supply chain ensuring their original design intent and perceived quality are met.”
