GMG at Labelexpo 2019

Label and packaging printing solutions


GMG, a developer and provider of color management software solutions, will demonstrate its latest color management and workflow tools for the automated use of individual profiles at its Stand A22 in Hall 6 at Labelexpo Brussels. “Our latest developments offer the packaging printing industry a large number of opportunities. With the connection of GMG ColorServer to GMG OpenColor, we pave the way for the automated use of customized profiles in the daily workflow,” said Roger Albert, director – Sales EMEA

The company will also participate at FachPack 2019, which takes place from 24 to 26 September 2019 in Nuremberg. At its Stand 612 in Hall 8, interested visitors from the printing and packaging industry can experience a live demonstration of how to produce color-accurate proofs on substrates close to packaging materials with the Epson SureColor SC-S80600. “The communication of color is always a challenge and visualization of the result is essential. The extension of GMG OpenColor and GMG ColorProof with the Epson SureColor SC-S80600 enables our customers to create high-quality packaging mock-ups that are also color-accurate,” said Albert.

The shift between different printing processes, the use of various substrates or changing printing conditions are still associated with a hefty work and time in prepress and data processing. Customized color profiles help to overcome these problems. With the latest release of GMG ColorServer, the company presents a direct connection to GMG OpenColor, which enables the automated use of specific separation profiles in the workflow.

With the Epson SureColor SC-S80600, coupled with GMG OpenColor and GMG ColorProof, as well as a portfolio of prototyping substrates, users can create packaging samples that are color accurate. A variety of prototype substrates is available to users, including shrink films, folding carton materials, metal foils, self-adhesive label materials, transparent films and even transfer foils for producing mock-ups on actual production media.

Johannes Betz, head of Marketing and Academy at GMG, will give a lecture on 27 September 2019, in the inks and coatings masterclass in Hall 11 and room 1101 at Labelexpo Europe on ‘Digital Color Communication – from the ink kitchen to the customer’ at 9:00 a.m. He will explain how color is communicated today, the usage and visualization of color references and new possibilities of digital color communication via color cards.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
