AvianGroupUSA is the exclusive representative of Murakami
Color Research Laboratories in the United States, the balance of North
and South America, as well as Europe. We sell and service all of the products
listed at left, and in many cases will come to your facility for installation
and training, included the purchase price of the instrument. For more

purchase and installation process.
Murakami has been one of Japan's premiere instrument manufacturers
for over 50 years. Their product line includes devices designed to measure various optical
properties including reflectance, transmittance, haze, and gloss. Their flagship products
are goniometric, which accurately measure color or photopic properties as a function of incident
and detection angle, as well as sample rotation and flop.
The set of instruments can be grouped into several general
categories. All quantify some aspect of optical properties of materials.
In a general sense, all of these measurements direct incident light onto
or through a sample, and then detect some portion of the light that reflects
off, or is transmitted through the sample. By carefully controlling the
geometry of these radiometric analyses, many properties can
Goniometric Instruments measure optical properties as a function
of incident and detection angles. These measurements are critical for goniochromatic samples,
some of which are known as pearlescents, effects pigments, or gonio-apparent
Color Instruments measure spectral reflectance
or transmittance using conventional measurement geometries.
Gloss Instruments measure specular reflection. These are not
color measurements, but still very critical to the appearance of surfaces.
Haze Instruments measure specific types of transmittance or translucence.
Online Systems are designed for high-speed measurements
in production environments.
AvianGroupUSA brings a dedicated team together
for all your needs relating to the specification and operation of optical properties measurement. We
look forward to working with you and helping determine the best solution for your business process.
