The Label Industry Global Award jury used criteria based on degree of innovation, practical effects and economic aspects, as well as energy efficiency and sustainability. While the American-based InterTech Technology Award, overseen by the Printing United Alliance, honoured the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic communications and related industries.
The winning team is managed by Rainer Schmitt, Head of Strategy and Product Management at GMG, who is of course particularly pleased that GMG ColorCard has been recognised twice.
"We are incredibly proud that we were able to convince with a solution that makes packaging printing much more efficient - the future of colour reference is digital," says Rainer Schmitt.
GMG ColorCard gives users the opportunity to digitally create physical colour cards in the shortest possible time. The innovative solution provides secure colour references with spectral data-based precision. With GMG ColorCard, time-consuming coordination cycles regarding the feasibility of a brand colour can be drastically reduced. Tolerances can be agreed with the customer prior to production, thus increasing efficiency not only in the colour kitchen, but also on the press. The smart solution replaces numerous manual steps and can reproduce spot colours on different paper qualities accurately and repeatably.
It’s also the second year in a row that a GMG product has won the Label Industry Global Award 2020 - Award for Innovation (for companies with up to 300 employees). In 2019 the company was recognised for its Calibration Creation Wizard, part of the GMG prototype proofing solution.
