The proofing standard for the flexo and packaging markets
The product portfolio in flexo and packaging printing is characterized by far greater substrate and spot color diversity. Consequently, the demands on a digital proofing system are also higher in the packaging sector. GMG sets quality standards in this field with its GMG FlexoProof software, which is specifically geared to the needs of the flexo and packaging markets and creates color-accurate halftone proofs. The proof simulates any kind of substrate structures and spot colors.
Why a halftone proof?
In platesetting, parameters like screen, overprinting and trapping settings, as well as correction curves, have a decisive influence on the subsequent printed result. Should problems occur at this point, such as an unfavorable screen angle, incorrect trapping or overprinting settings, and also interpretation errors, this can only be detected at an early stage by means of a halftone proof created with the original imagesetter data.
GMG FlexoProof allows direct processing of 1-bit imagesetter data, so that they can be inexpensively proofed on inkjet printers, and errors detected before platesetting or the start of a press run.
The GMG FlexoProof XG (Extended Gamut) module is an additional option which enables users to make the most of the expanded color gamut of Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Designjet Z3200 printers. Far more spot colors can be simulated in a halftone proof.
- optimal simulation of substrates
- exact simulation of spot colors
- increased production reliability
- higher productivity
- cutting costs, e.g. no imperfect prints, less paper waste
