The trend toward digital printing in packaging production is progressing rapidly. The multicolour solution from GMG not only ensures the smooth integration of digital systems in conventional environments but also guarantees consistent results across all systems: whether reproducing custom brand colours or standard spot colours – even when printed on different digital printing machines running ECG ink sets, accurate results are a given.
Packaging printers experience more pressure on deadlines than ever. Highest quality must be delivered in the shortest possible time. This means there is no time for multiple rounds of corrections at proofing stage. GMG proofing gives exact predictions of the printing results and reliable handling of spot colours, so makeready times and machine downtimes are minimised.
It’s much more than just an impression of the final product – with the award-winning solution from GMG, packaging mockups can now be produced with unmatched colour accuracy. This colour reliability and accuracy simplifies production greatly as there are no more misunderstandings and expectations are clear. An essential part of the solution is the GMG Calibration Creation Wizard, a smart tool that won the Innovation Award at Labelexpo Europe 2019.
Digital ink drawdowns: GMG’s new solution can creates reliable colour references from customer spectral data. The visualisation of an individually created ink recipe with the help of the digitally produced colour card revolutionises the dialogue between ink lab, printer and client. Time-consuming colour approval rounds are drastically reduced. Tolerances can be agreed before print. This improved process reliability not only increases efficiency in the ink lab but also on the printing press.
Achieving the best possible results in image processing using Adobe Photoshop, often relies entirely on the experience of the operator. Changes affecting individual colour channels, for example, are usually demanding, very time-consuming and often require several proof steps. The reliable soft-proofing function and profiling from GMG can help with this. These solutions will be showcased at drupa 2020.
