There are no definite industry standards in packaging printing due to the huge spectrum of substrates, ink systems and refinement processes. If printing is done at different sites or if different printing processes are used, minimising colour variations represents a major challenge. In the past optimisation occurred through adjustments to the printing press, but we can now safeguard the consistency of the print result through fingerprint-based targeted print colour management in the digital phase. As a result we work with an individual profiling process, which includes all of the relevant process parameters (up to 70 variables) in gravure, flexo and offset printing and are constantly developing these further. This means that we can guarantee maximum colour consistency across all of the interfaces from design to print.
