GMG Proofing Software will drive the Epson/Canon/HP inkjet printers to match your printing press in terms of color appearance. All major brands in the world which includes Unilver, Pepsi, P&G, Tesco. Apple and more use GMG for managing colors across the supply chain.

How GMG Color Proofing Solutions Helps You:

1)Generate Color Contone Contract Proofs & Get Approval Before Production.

2)Predict & Confirm colors before plates are made.

2)Avoid the need to print on press and check the colors and then loose time, material and clients.

4)Confidence in sales team and client that you predict the colors before printing and match it.

5)Avoid giving the mandate to press operators to do color correction in press to match proof.

6)In short this improves quality, productivity & Profits.

This Solution in addition of above color proof solution flexo proof can give you below benefits as well:

1) Can generate dot proofs as input is ripped 1 bit

2) You can predict missing dots & pressure related dot gain

2) Can Simulate Substrate Texture

3) Simulation of press misregistration

4) GMG FlexoProof has HKS and the Pantone®-Library pre-loaded as standards. All available spot colors are stored in a central color database and can be added to by user at any time.
All spot colors can be entered and measured automatically in any gradation, and GMG FlexoProof controls up to 64 separations in one image.

GMG Open Color Proofing:

Is the latest solution from GMG and only solution which can accurately predict the color appearance when CMYK is printed over spot or spot is printed over CMYK.
Open color makes perfect Proof profiles for packaging printing which has complex color predictions required- more efficient and reliable than ever before.

Do you need to change the color sequence in an order? Has the density changed, or the substrate? GMG OpenColor immediately calculates a new profile. Instead of printing on the machine again and again, the result of changed conditions can now be predicted accurately and with minimal expenditure.

GMG Proof Control –

Quality control software for proofs.

A key element in a networked and standardized work environment offering totally new capabilities for color-accurate verification of a proof within seconds on the basis of incorporated target values from international industry standards.

The proofs will be having a fogra passing certification sticker which will clearly show your buyer it’s a color contract proof.

Also normally international print buyers will ask you to standardise your prepress,proof and press to Fogra.Gracol or G7 Standards we can implement these standards as well in your organization and meet the expectations of the print buyer.

GMG Color Plug In:

The Ingenious Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop GMG ColorPlugin Packaging:

Using the Channel Removal tool, the content of individual channels can be completed or selectively removed. Channel Removal tool, Minimum Dot functions.

This can be used for 4 color or for Any Color Seperation of images.

If you need vector & raster separation tool from any color to XG or from any color to any color separation automatically we can provide you same as well.

Heimann Dot Scope 3D Anilox & Gravure Cylinder Analysis Tool.

The Dot Scope 3D is a 3D microscope specially optimized to the needs of the printing industry. Robust, easy to use, fast in the measurement and still precise.

As measuring method, the focus variation is used. In this method, images are recorded at different focus settings. Then a 3D model is calculated from the different local sharpness values. Typical applications for the DotScope 3D are the measurement of microscopic structures on gravure cylinders, flexo plates or sleeves or anilox rolls.

The operation is very simple: Set the unit to the point to be measured, manually move nearly to the highest measuring point. Then click the start button. The illumination is automatically optimally adjusted and within a few seconds the 3D profile is determined. In addition, the tread depth, the surface volume, the grid and the screen angles have been determined without further user intervention. A typical measurement takes 10…20 seconds.

GMG Color Server –

Fully Automatic top quality Color Conversion for making different paper types/printing process to print to a particular international standard.

Improves color quality of print on different paper types and reduced make ready time.

Preferred by Packaging Offset Companies to match colors on most commonly used and difficult substrates in their business like gray back,mettalised etc to ISO 12647-2 standards or standards defined by print buyers easily. This also improves color quality tremendously.

This solution helps achieve high quality print results with minimum make ready.

GMG Ink Optimizer –

Optimizes the color composition of printing data – automatically and in a matter of seconds. This significantly improves the printing quality. Optimization is based on GMG‘s 4D Device-Link profiles.
The CMY color component is replaced by black while exactly retaining the color impression. Reduces Ink Consumption by 12% in sheetfed offset and 20% in web offset.
It also ensure gray balanced printing across run and also eliminates set off and drying issues when using conventional printing inks.
