Tomorrow's printing world

Smart technologies and new digital printing systems for industrial production open up completely different opportunities for companies in the print media sector.

Printed paper inside of a digital printing machine

The research focus comes directly from the Technical Committee “Digital Printing” (better known as Digital Printing Working Group, DPWG). They include process-independent image quality, colour management for the entire digital printing sector, and important sustainability topics such as energy efficiency.

Image Quality

Digitaldruck   10/01/2015

Basis for standardization of digital production printing using toner based and large format inkjet printers.


The scope of testing covers all areas where no agreed ISO standard is available for evaluation and assessment.

Rather, the specific task depends on the individual examination of the respective facts. It forms the basis for the development of a specific evaluation regime, be it the development of an acceptance guideline for digital print production or the image quality evaluation of barcodes on glass.

In doing so, we combine our experience from the diverse research projects with the practical experience on site.

Especially in digital printing there is not always the standard solution. We advise you individually, in the evaluation of software or printing solutions.



Team: Certifications of Digital printing

We work on international standards and build our FograCert certification programme on them. The ProcessStandard Digital (PSD) has established itself internationally. It comprises recommendations, instructions for action as well as target values and tolerances for the digital print production customary in the industry.
