Proofing on packaging substrate

Filmproof at abc packmedia

"The color-metric quality is convincing and enables us to offer the same flexibility and speed on different types of film as we do on paper."

Eva Jüde-Löffler, responsible for color management in LEADStudio at abc packmedia

The Challenge

Color-accurate proofs on packaging substrates

Many abc packmedia customers not only want proofs to communicate the color result on paper, but also on different packaging substrates. In particular, the production process of film proofs using lamination and a laser-based proofing device is a complicated affair. Since it is not possible to adopt existing GMG color profiles in this process, they must first be converted to another color management technology.
A solution was sought that would integrate into the existing GMG system, convert existing color profiles quickly and accurately, and be easy to control.

The Solution

GMG Color Management for Epson SureColor S80600

The inkjet-based printer Epson SC-S80600 enables abc packmedia to quickly and easily create color-accurate film proofs and packaging prototypes. The system is controlled via GMG ColorProof. Existing projects in GMG OpenColor and existing GMG color profiles can be converted quickly and easily for the different substrates. The printer can be recalibrated within tight tolerances to ensure consistent performance and color representation. 

The Benefits

• More flexibility in color communication with the customer
• Excellent color match between standard paper proof and film proof
• Increased productivity through time savings during conversion
• Simple control and seamless integration into the GMG system
• Rapid expansion of the portfolio with new media using the GMG Calibration Creation Wizard
