G7 expands efficiencies and has a direct and positive effect on the OEE of the printing process.

G7 is a specification and calibration method that allows process control in any CMYK reproduction method and a definition of a grayscale's visual appearance. From a colour proof to the final printed sheet, it offers consistency, and it's relatively easy to implement.

G7 reduces costs of operation speed-up processing time and has substantial positive effects on the OEE of the printing process.

Adjusting the gray balance of reproductions on various substrates and achieving the desired visual appearance has been one of the most critical challenges and the primary source of material waste and unproductive times.

Unfortunately, the efficiency of reproduction equipment depends on the work done in processes external to printing. In the prepress stage, the G7 methodology allows managing and optimizing the reproductions reliably and consistently.
The rapid start-up, job changes without delay, and stable and consistent reproduction during production directly positively impact OEE.

Process standardization of make-readies and production are some of the benefits of the G7 methodology.
This G7 calibration methodology offers drastic reductions in make-ready times and applies to any CMYK printing equipment, substrates or process inks.

The results obtained with this methodology are consistent and produce a perfect gray balance and tonalities required to match the colour-proof and the colour rendering to satisfy the client.

The process standardization of make-ready procedures allows consistency and predictable results. Also, it increases productivity and even the stability and quality of the reproductions during production.

For evaluations and implementation of the G7 methodology, or to obtain the international qualification of Master G7, contact us directly at 416 697 8814. 

The G7 Master qualification indicates that the company has equipment and systems precisely calibrated to produce gray balance and neutral tone curves and that proofs and printed products are consistent with G7 specifications.
