Sun Chemical’s SunDigiProof service now integrates the GMG ColorCard technology

GMG, proofing and color management tools developer, and Sun Chemical, a supplier inks for packaging, have partnered on a digital color workflow system.

GMG ColorCard technology enables users to digitize their color workflows.

Sun Chemical’s SunDigiProof service now integrates the GMG ColorCard technology. It is available as part of the SunColorBox toolkit and provides precise digital drawdowns on-site and on demand. Adding the GMG ColorCard enables SunDigiProof users to digitize and automate the production of precise digital color matches based on digitally defined colors. This enables printers to create and share color matches faster while minimizing the cost and effort of qualifying colors both internally and with their brand partners.

Marc Levine, director of business development at GMG, said: ‘Our partnership with Sun Chemical helps print businesses digitize their color processes and better future-proof their businesses. We believe that digital color specification and communication tools remove the friction around color so that brands and their supply chain partners can produce color with more efficiency, greater accuracy and higher consistency.

‘With GMG ColorCard, ink drawdowns are simplified requiring no special tools or expertise. We build our expertise into the software, using spectral prediction technology found in GMG OpenColor,’ Levine continued.

‘We also leverage the capability of today’s high-performance inkjet printing solutions, enabling users to create accurate, repeatable digital color matches in under three minutes. That means no more time-consuming and resource-intensive manual processing, consistent substrate-to-substrate consistency, and faster, more accurate color referencing across the board.

‘By combining the expertise of GMG and Sun Chemical, we’re delivering best-practice-in-a-box and helping our customers streamline their color approval workflows.’

Adding GMG ColorCard has enabled SunDigiProof to be highly configurable meeting a wide range of technical requirements. By digitizing manual processes and unlocking in-house color matching, the technology enables simple cost control and added flexibility.

Patrice Aurenty, business leader color management, global at Sun Chemical added: ‘The goal of our partnership is to offer a best-in-class solution for automating color swatch production and enhancing speed to market. We are delighted to accomplish this and more, with the added advantages of clearer color communication and exemplary consistency, regardless of substrate or project complexity.'
