Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave Micro Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave Dual Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave II
Used / Demo Models Available Qualitest offers extensive range of advanced advanced plastics and Color testing equipment such as Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave Series which offers tailored appearance measurement solutions for every task, from portable units for the painted body or small add-on parts, to a robotic sensor for automatic appearance measurement.

Paint appearance is described by its brilliance and smoothness, often referred to as DOI (Distinctness of Image) and Orange Peel. Qualitest orange peel and DOI meters have been used at all major car makers and suppliers as the global standard to objectively control and optimize appearance. The Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave Dual series offers tailored appearance measurement solutions for every task, from portable units for the painted body or small add-on parts, to a robotic sensor for automatic appearance measurement.

Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Micro Wave Scan
Orange Peel and DOI measurement

Now you can measure Orange Peel and DOI on small and curved surfaces: Automotive add-on parts - like bumpers, gas tank doors, mirror housings, door handles, and decorative trim or motorcycle parts.

For curved and small parts

Curvature >300 mm

Minimum sample size: 25 mm x 40 mm

Selectable scan length 20, 10 or even 5 cm

Measurement area: 4 mm x scan length

DOI measurement possible without scanning the surface Good correlation to wave-scan DOI, the appearance standard in the automotive industry

Fits in the palm of your hand

Small and light weight Easy to operate with one hand New scroll wheel to select functions and operate button to take readings.

Large, multilingual display: complete statistics and name input directly at the orange peel meter Storage of 2000 readings in selectable memories.

Docking station for recharging battery pack and data transfer to PC

  • Rechargeable battery pack or standard mignon batteries can be used
  • Auto-chart software for professional analysis, documentation and data management.
Objective and reliable appearance data
  • Structure spectrum gives detailed information about various structure sizes
  • High correlation to the visual perception.
  • Cause of appearance changes can be analyzed

Orange Peel / DOI Meter - Wave II
Orange Peel and DOI measurement on high to semi gloss surfaces

Appearance control is no longer limited to final topcoat inspection. The orange peel meter scans the optical profile of high gloss surfaces using a laser light source. An additional, infrared –high energy LED allows measuring the same structure spectrum (0.1 – 30 mm) on medium gloss surfaces. The dullness measurement is recorded with state-of-the-art CCD camera technology. It gives information on the image forming qualities of the surface caused by structures < 0.1mm.

Close the appearance control loop for the entire paint process

Thus, the surface quality after each paint process step can be objectively evaluated. No more guessing which substrate layer is influencing the final appearance. The wave-scan dual will help you to objectively analyze appearance problems and reduce the time necessary for trouble shooting.

Objective and reliable appearance data
  • Good correlation to wave-scan DOI on high gloss surfaces
  • Good correlation to mechanical profilometer readings on medium gloss surfaces
Easy to use with one hand
  • For flat and curved areas
  • Small and light weight
  • Scroll wheel operation and multilingual menu
  • Selectable scales and scan lengths
  • Full statistics with saving in selectable memories
  • USB port for data transfer to PC
  • Software auto-chart:
    • Organizer files for sample identification
    • Data management with Access DB
    • Standard QC Reports in Excel
Always ready

The orange peel meter is operated with a rechargeable battery pack (Li-Ion). The docking station automatically charges the battery pack and transfers the measured data to the PC. Optionally, the instrument can be operated with 3 standard mignon alkaline or rechargeable batteries – good for 1000 readings.
