GMG InkOptimizer

Easily print better – with automatic ink reduction

Print houses are facing a constant increase in the pressure of costs and deadlines. Consequently, stabilization of the printing process and cost savings are important issues to remain competitive in the marketplace. GMG InkOptimizer meets precisely these requirements.

How? – Quite simply by means of fully automatic ink reduction.

A DeviceLink transformation (CMYK-to-CMYK) is applied to individual images or complete pages. In contrast to ICC solutions the integrity of the black channel is preserved. The quantity of CMY inks used is reduced, and the proportion of black ink simultaneously increased, while maintaining an identical color impression. The processing of PDFs is based on the Adobe® PDF Library, guaranteeing the correct handling of PDF files.

This results in highest print quality and more stable production, as


  • color variations are reduced
  • the separations are harmonized
  • the gray balance is stabilized.


Your benefits - Ink reduction boosts productivity by

  • improved printing properties
  • faster makeready
  • shorter drying time
  • faster finishing
  • less waste
  • up to 20% savings on ink depending on the printing process and the substrate
