Prepress Automation Benefits at a Glance
Print shops face a wide range of challenges. To stay in the game, you need to beat competition and increase your margins. One way to achieve this is through automation. Automation of the prepress segment drives down costs, maximizes efficiencies, reduces the impact of human error, and results in a shorter time-to-market.
Some of the challenges that printers usually face in the prepress segment include error-prone manual data checking and processing, as well as inadequate capacity utilization.
If your press relies on manual data checking, you know how time-consuming this is. It slows down your prepress processes, reduces your operational efficiency and impacts the entire print cycle. To add to this, the chances of error are far higher. Eventually, this leads to loss of productivity.
Additionally, with error prone manual processes in place, capacity utilization becomes a big challenge in the prepress segment. This results in higher costs and loss of revenue.
Enhance Prepress Efficiency, Reliability
Prepress automation is about improving prepress efficiency. There are several routine prepress tasks to be completed. Prepress automation helps speed up all your processes. Data can be checked faster than with manual processes, and with much higher accuracy.
This process of data checking goes on in the background. Prinect gives you a detailed report of all the results. All errors are identified. You also get to know if there are any changes to be done. In case this is necessary, the required changes are made as a part of the same process.
With Prinect, you can customize your prepress processes. Keeping the requirements of your print shop in mind, you can select the level of automation your print shop needs, and set your own rules. By doing this, you can optimize the workflows and the monitoring of processes. This customization will result in faster data processing. Your prepress segment becomes more reliable and simpler to manage.
Prinect uses multiple modules for prepress automation. These modules cater to all prepress processes, including automatic checking and optimization of print data, sheet layout impositioning, ripping, calibration and proofing with approval cycles to assigning and implementing the right screening method and archiving of job data.
