Sponsored by Flint Group Narrow Web, the award was for specific innovation introduced by a supplier or converter company in the label industry in 2018.

Peter Schöffler, Product Manager at GMG, said, “The fact that we were awarded and that our innovative strength was acknowledged is an honour and a tremendous praise for us. Above all, we owe this success to an inter-divisional development team.”

With the GMG Calibration Creation Wizard, users of the Epson SC-S80600 were able to quickly and easily create accurate, reproducible proofs on media close to the production material. The software is fully integrated with GMG ColorProof and GMG OpenColor, enabling operators to create specific profiles for various media types as well as benefit from reliable calibrations.

“We realised how high the demand for colour accurate mock-ups really is. To get an idea of what the product will look like in the end, consistent colour appearance needs to be maintained on every compatible substrate,” Schöffler said.

The symbiosis of GMG colour management, production-related media, and the Epson SC-S80600 was particularly interesting for users in the fields of flexible packaging, corrugated board, folding carton and labels.

Das Damodaran, Technical Sales Manager at Farb Technologies (Indian distributor of GMG colour management solutions), said, "It's nice to see that the industry has recognised the strength of GMG. We take this recognition as a motivation to develop further and avoid issues of colours in brand design and package production."
