The crafts of colorist, painter and metallizer all consist in reaching tint targets, i.e., colors, surface finish and nuances. The color target is either a benchmark or a Pantone / RAL code. The surface finish target is a gloss gradient, from mat to shiny. The nuances or effects target is a description such as “marbled”, “iridescent”, “pearly”, etc.
Tint targets should perfectly match customer expectations or finish specifications. The colorist’s expertise lies precisely in understanding finish expectations and in formulating the exact hues and processes in consequence. The painter and metallizer roles are to apply these processes meticulously.
The VOLUM-e team of colorists, painters and metallizers works on ever changing projects and at the same time strives to standardize or automate processes. The objective is to reliably finish series parts with automated processes in order to meet and exceed customer expectations in terms of quality, time and cost.
