Benefits of Prinect:
Transform your color and quality management with standards that can be checked precisely and establish reference values for the print product. Your print result is affected by all kinds of different factors - from paper grade, screen and ink to the actual press. It is only possible to perfectly coordinate proof, plate, and print if these factors are known quantities.
Prinect ensures reliable production. You can define and verify values and tolerances for a standard that are used to coordinate the proofer, platesetter, and press. This standardization ensures matching proof and print values. You can comply precisely with color values - and optimize color and quality management. Inking becomes quicker and easier and, in the event of deviations or complaints, negotiations are facilitated by logs documenting the production process. Established standards include the ISO standard and the process standard for offset printing, but specifications from other sources - such as customers - can also be implemented with the greatest of ease.
Reliability in production
Standardization benefits both you and your customers. You can satisfy customer requirements on any press, while your customers get the quality they are looking for and are happy to use you again. In the long term, this is the best way of ensuring your print shop's profitability.
Ensure matching output results by using ICC color profiles for the proofer and calibration characteristics for the platesetter.
Can you comply with proof specifications quickly and precisely on the press? How long does it take for you to set up your press properly? With Prinect, lithographic processes at the press are definitely a thing of the past. Prinect ensures that the proof and print really do match.
Adjusted dot gain
How does it do this? Prinect uses the ICC profiles defined by the International Color Consortium to simulate the print result precisely on the proofer. The print-ready document is first output on the proofer using the RIP and then, following customer approval, on the platesetter. In addition, Prinect stores all kinds of calibration characteristics for platesetting on the RIP. These are selected automatically according to the particular press and consumables being used. They ensure that the dot gain in the print always complies with the coloring standard, despite different production parameters.
Prinect boosts your efficiency and profitability - thanks to calibration and profiling tools that enable you to implement the proof specifications quickly and precisely.
Benefits of Prinect:
Ink up quickly - with job-specific ink presettings on the press that are obtained from prepress.
The quicker your press is set up, the sooner you can start production. This process is easy and more cost-effective with Prinect - thanks to job-specific ink presettings. You cut paper waste and make-ready times - and improve press utilization. How exactly does it work? Your prepress generates digital presetting data based on production parameters and sends these via the RIP to the pressroom interface where the ink distribution for each ink zone is calculated and sent to the press control system together with thumbnails and job data.
Automatic ink presetting
Prinect makes all this possible. Ink presetting characteristics are stored in the press and selected automatically based on the production parameters. You control the exact opening of the ink zones so that the correct amount of ink is always applied to the paper for any paper/ink combination. If color values are adjusted during printing, Prinect enables you to adopt these settings as a new characteristic. Make-ready times are cut, the production run can start sooner and more precisely, and jobs can be reproduced with absolute reliability.
Prinect ensures high-precision register measurement and control on the fly.
Precise coloring is not the only thing that determines the quality of your print product. Only with absolute register accuracy can you print screen tones cleanly. Prinect enables inline register measurement and control on the fly - for short make-ready times and perfect print product quality.
Inline monitoring and control
You can identify register deviations as small as one hundredth of a millimeter automatically and correct them directly - even at high press speeds! The necessary control marks can be located at the edge of the sheet or in the color bar to save space. You can then control the lateral, circumferential and diagonal registers directly from the press control console - fully automatically and simultaneously for all printing units. Prinect ensures high-precision printing - because absolute register accuracy is a must for top print quality.
Everything under control - with consistent print quality throughout the run.
Cost-effective production also means ensuring consistent color throughout the run without lengthy machine stoppages for checks or upgrades. In other words, you need to be able to identify and correct even the smallest color deviations immediately on the fly. Prinect sets your mind at rest with a number of color measuring systems for superb quality control.
Reliable measurement of spot and process colors
A number of different color measuring systems are available for quality control purposes, depending on your business model. All these systems measure spot and process colors spectrophotometrically. In addition to colorimetric color differences, ink densities and tonal values are also displayed and adjustments for the individual ink zones are calculated automatically. The fact that all measuring systems have a direct link to the press control system enables deviations to be corrected directly. Measurements can be performed inside or outside the press, depending on the system used.
Quality control reduces the number of complaints and boosts productivity. Maintain your high standards and speed up production - with Prinect color measuring and control systems.
Spot printing errors immediately - and avoid the high costs of paper waste and reworking.
A printing error that goes unnoticed can quickly lead to considerable paper waste, aggravation and delays. All this can easily be avoided - with Prinect. Its automatic early warning system is almost the equivalent of a third eye. It ensures perfect production run monitoring, issues warnings in the event of printing errors, and carefully documents all incidents. The inline inspection system also compares each individual sheet produced with a digital reference sheet.
You identify printing errors such as hickeys, marks and flaws as well as scumming and smudging at an early stage and can react long before high costs are incurred. Defective sheets are marked in the delivery pile and can be removed either as soon as the error has been rectified or later on. Avoid the high costs of paper waste and reworking - with Prinect.
Identify color fluctuations on the fly - with the Mini Spot workflow.
Do you have complete control over your entire coloring process? With Prinect, you can control and track each individual step during the production run.
This is made possible by a color workflow unique to Prinect. The special thing about it is that, in addition to conventional color bars, it also uses small measuring elements known as Mini Spots that can be positioned anywhere on the sheet. These are measured on the fly and compared with your target values, which you are free to select. With Prinect, it is easy to check both international standards and your own in-house standards.
If deviations are identified, you can immediately correct the existing printing characteristic for plate manufacture or the ICC profile being used. The next proof or plate set will then once again be perfectly matched to the new printing conditions. All measuring data can be logged for analyses or to provide proof of quality. Mini Spots thus deliver consistently high production quality. You can cut make-ready times and paper waste by up to half while also producing jobs on several presses without any differences in quality.ntrol
