Fujifilm Achieves G7® Qualification at its Graphics Innovation Hub

Fujifilm North America Corporation’s Graphic Systems Division Graphics Innovation Hub in Hanover Park, Illinois has achieved G7® Master Qualification with Targeted compliance (CRPC6) on its flexographic press, awarded by Idealliance®. In earning this qualification, Fujifilm successfully completed thorough training and examination, culminating with Idealliance issuing qualification for their Hanover Park facility.

G7 is Idealliance’s set of global standards for achieving gray balance to obtain visual similarity across all print processes. The application of this method enables printers to reproduce a consistent visual appearance across all printing types and substrates, which is especially useful in the printing of packaging.

“Our commitment to G7 standards is just one example of how we’re maximizing the performance of flexographic solutions we provide to our customers. We look forward to the benefits that this qualification brings to both our clients and their customers,” says Peter Pretzer, ColorPath solutions development manager, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division.

Fujifilm offers its print service provider customers training as part of Master G7 Print Provider Qualification, G7 Expert and Professional training and certification, and G7 alignment of Fujifilm and third party printing systems. The Fujifilm team utilized tools that are offered by its Graphic Systems Division, including ColorPath® SYNC Align, 300 Series LED/UV Hybrid inks, Illumina® UV/LED Curing System, Flenex Waterwash Flexo Plates, Esko CDI Crystal 4835, Tesa Tape, and an Edale FL-3 430mm flexo press, to achieve G7 Colorspace compliance on flexographic equipment in its Hanover Park facility. G7 Master Qualification for their facility demonstrates how Fujifilm can also help its customers achieve objectives for brand color quality and control.
