Proof even challenging color and material combinations
Contrary to largely standardized offset printing, the variety of substrates in Flexo print alone is a challenge for most proofing systems. Add in a large number of spot colors and most proofing solutions become ineffective. GMG FlexoProof, however, has for a long time been comfortable working in these unique circumstances.
For instance, GMG FlexoProof lets users create individual substrate structures such as paper fibers, embossed structures or corrugated board for proof output. Even unfavorable conditions such as printing on inferior quality paper can be simulated with the help of a signal noise.
Support for all standard spot color systems
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.
Overprinting spot colors are calculated using a special algorithm and printed accurately by taking the substrate into account. In this way, even Duplex effects or color models like Hexachrome® can be reliably calculated and simulated.
Color opacity and sequencing can also be user-defined. White under-printing - indispensable in the packaging market - can also be defined as a separate color.
With the optional XG module, you can also take advantage of the latest multicolor printer series from Epson Stylus Pro x900 and HP Designjet Z3200. These printers have an extended color space, allowing substantially more spot colors to be accurately simulated in a halftone proof. Previously, this was only possible with very expensive and slow thermal halftone proofing systems.
