Global Graphics to Show Software Service

CAMBRIDGE, UK | Global Graphics Software will feature a new software and engineering service for labels and packaging presses at Labelexpo Americas 2016, September 13–15, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL.

Called Fundamentals, the service provides inkjet press manufacturers with a single source for the key software components and engineering knowhow that company says are essential to building a digital front end to drive a press. The goal is to help to reduce time to market and engineering costs by breaking through the common barriers that prevent manufacturers from getting out to market on time and on budget. Fundamentals can also be applied to existing presses to overcome common quality issues, such as poor quality barcodes or small text, or defects caused by mottling and chaining.

“We’ve been working with several manufacturers who are pushing the boundaries of inkjet technology as they bring new presses to market,” says Martin Bailey, CTO, Global Graphics Software. “We’ve created Fundamentals to respond to the problems they face in the development phase of a new press which they often can’t solve on their own. We can step in and help them out with our combination of best-of-breed software and our new BreakThrough Engineering Service. The goal is to break through every technical barrier, accelerating the press to market.”

Eric Worrall, who heads up the Global Graphics’ BreakThrough team, says, “Every press, every application, and every operating environment is different. We work side by side with the manufacturer to create a solution that is truly customized to their press. In doing so we give the manufacturer access to our tools and a unique pool of print scientists and engineers with decades of specialist knowledge exactly when they need them.”

Fundamentals includes “best of breed” software from other vendors and marks the start of closer collaboration between Global Graphics Software and HYBRID Software, both of which share the same chairman in Guido Van der Schueren.
