Autonomous printing represents the ultimate stage in automated print production. The patented Intellistart 2 operator guidance system from Heidelberg enables the fully automated job changeover - from the last to the first full sheet of the subsequent order to the start of the new production.
Autonomous printing requires the following conditions:
With which applications is autonomous printing compatible?
Of course, not all print jobs can be produced today using a fully automated printing process. Examples of applications compatible with autonomous printing include all applications with group molds or signature changes where the order of sequences, the order of substrates and color assignments remain unchanged.
In which area can autonomous printing be implemented today?
The primary focus, when implementing autonomous printing today, is the printing press - which represents the core of the print production workflow. However, solutions for fully automated printing also exist today in the area of prepress. For more information about automated production in the CtP area, read our article Non-stop plate production .
Whether measuring the entire print image or permanently displaying the color deviation ΔE during the production run, our color measurement systems offer a number of benefits.
Similar to a navigation system in a car, our navigated printing features provide operators with the information necessary for the best possible workflow sequence for the job change.
