FLEXO Magazine : April 2009
All Printing Resources Introduces G7 Qualifi cation for Flexo All Printing Resources (APR) announced the availability of the fi rst G7 Master Printer certifi cation program for fl exo- graphic operations. With its in-house G7 Experts, APR is able to assist converters in obtaining G7 Master qualifi cation. Developed by IDEAlliance and the GRACoL committee,G7 Master qualifi ca- tion signifi es that a converter has been trained to print to the new G7 proof-to- print process and has calibrated the proof- ing system or press to the G7 method. The qualifi cation also indicates that a converter uses the most modern technol- ogy, techniques and process controls and standards required to produce high- quality printing. G7 is named for its gray scale calibration technique and the seven ISO ink colors it requires. The “G” refers to the calibrating gray values, while the “7” refers to the seven primary color values: cyan, magenta, yellow, black, red, green and blue defi ned by the ISO. “This is a process that’s traditionally been associated with off set printing press- es and is now becoming more of a factor in the fl exo market as we continually strive to improve color consistency,” explains Dave Nieman, president of All Printing Resources, and outgoing chairman of FTA’s Board of Directors. APR off ers the fi rst G7 Qualifi cation program for fl exographic printers, includ- ing on-site consulting and a complete program to calibrate, linearize and profi le the press. For more information on be- coming a G7 Master Printer, please call APR at 708-784-3115 or visit them on the web at www.teamfl exo.com.
