P-Net makes it possible to integrate individual POLAR components or
POLAR cutting systems into the digital workflow through P-Net
Connect. Additional functions can be added using so-called
"services". Two examples:
Compucut: with more than 25 years of experience, we provide a benchmark for reducing makeready times. The cutting program can be easily generated outside the high-speed cutter because the sheet layout (CIP4 / JDF) is either taken over directly from prepress or the sheet is recorded manually. This means that the machine's set-up time is reduced to almost zero. With uniform sheets it is even possible to automate the generation of the cutting program.
CutManager: links the P-Net on-line to the Prinect Postpress Manager of Heidelberg, and thus integrates it into the digital printing workflow. By exchanging job and production data the P-Net Service CutManager offers advantages with respect to transparency of costs and performance as well as the production planning. In addition is the logging of production data the basis for precise cost analyses.
Barcode: to load and start automatically the corresponding cutting program. Faulty operation is excluded as the correct cutting program is loaded automatically without lengthy search. The barcode reader is integrated into the left-hand light barrier housing of the high speed cutter and can be activated via a button on the touch screen monitor.
