These new products are a direct response to the continuing pressroom challenges that printers face going forward. Printers are being challenged today with tough economic conditions, rising costs for paper, ink and plates on one side, and more demanding customers on the other.

Based on GMI’s leading spectrophotometer color control technology and the experienced gathered from thousands of Microcolor and ColorQuick installations, the new generation solutions provide printers with new levels of automation, new added value tools, dramatically increased ease of use, and faster operation. These new color control products form the foundation for optimum web press printing.”
