Press release from the issuing company

Tuebingen – GMG, supplier of high-end color management and proofing solutions, announced today that GMG proofing systems have received the Fogra Certifications for FOGRA51/52 and proof papers containing OBAs.

Following proofing systems have been certified:

  • FOGRA39, FOGRA 51 and FOGRA52:

Reflecting the popularity of production papers with high optical brighteners in offset printing, some ISO standards have been revised during the last couple of years. Following the new criteria in color viewing and color measurement, the results have been addressed in the revision of the offset printing standard criteria (ISO12647-2) in 2013. With FOGRA51 and FOGRA52, the first characterization data based on ISO12647-2:2013 are now released for woodfree-coated and woodfree-uncoated substrates. 

To illustrate the fluorescent effects of optical brighteners in common production papers during proofing, GMG recommends the use of OBA-containing proofing substrates. 

“We are happy to be able to offer GMG customers these new tools that allow the printing industry a significantly improved color communication for the most important printing conditions,” says Juergen Seitz, Senior Technical Advisor at GMG.
