SONNE – HELLA's own paint brand – has a new model of intelligent paint scales from METTER TOLEDO, PaintPerfect.


  • In addition to the ability to create formulas, the scales have other integrated applications, such as calculation by factor or formula-free mixtures.
  • It can store up to 30 formulas that can be easily retrieved and processed.


This solution features an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, helping to increase productivity and reduce processing time. It also features a large touchscreen that enhances the display of mixing information and alerts, effortlessly managing formulas and eliminating potential errors.


Another feature is the design, which allows for flexible component placement to optimise ergonomic positioning. In addition, the display can be mounted on a column, wall or desk, or connected directly to the PC with the mixing software, thus saving installation costs.


It features flexible connectivity, easily upgrading the USB communication port to Ethernet, allowing for seamless data transfer.


One of its strengths is that the formulas can be stored directly on the scales, freeing up computer space and allowing the entire process to be managed from the workstation itself, which clearly reduces formula errors.
