Unlock synergies and boost productivity with short downtimes.
Short makeready times automatically boost your print shop's productivity because they leave more time for your machines to operate at full capacity. Prinect shortens make-ready times by optimizing processes and unlocking synergies, for example with intelligent automation and job and presetting data created at the prepress stage that is automatically made available to machines. Thanks to central data acquisition, you always have access to the exact information required. Whether this is customer or production data, Prinect enables you to view all details in real time - at the planning and prepress stages, and on the actual machines.
Benefits of Prinect:
Cutting make-ready times starts at the prepress stage - with the creation of automatic sequences for frequently recurring activities.
There's no doubt about it - automated optimization of print data shortens the preparation times that are inevitable with manual processing. How? By defining automated sequences that run consecutively as independent fixed processes. The crucial benefits for you are that automated processes are more reliable, less prone to error and dispense with the need for routine tasks to be completed manually.
Standardized data brings efficiency
Prinect transforms your data management. You have direct access to all data from the job acceptance and costing stages - ranging from administrative information to comments on colors, job structure, planned machine assignment and imposition layouts - and this is always available exactly where it is required. Automation reduces the amount of work required to reach the platesetting stage, leaving you to concentrate on the important thing - monitoring prepress operations.
Just imagine the extent to which minimizing manual tasks speeds up print production and frees up additional capacity! Prinect automatically provides you with all relevant job data at the control station - from paper type, format, color and run length to job number, customer name and register marks. Get up and running faster, using thumbnails to help you identify the relevant job. Ink presetting data created at the prepress stage is also transferred. Typical properties of the print job are taken into account and ink zones are set faster. This means you can set up the press efficiently with only a small amount of paper waste and also ink up quickly. The setup process is consistently reproducible and reliability in production is enhanced. At the end of the day, this results in better print quality by leaving you more time for fine-tuning.
Fast job preparation
Job preparation is also much quicker at the new press control station. With Prinect, it can start while another job is still under way. By comparing the current job with the next job in the schedule, Prinect establishes which settings can be left and the changes that actually need to be made. This generates a dynamic process list with an optimum sequence of steps for automatic processing. It also reduces setup work by up to 70 percent, minimizes errors and cuts make-ready times.
Benefits of Prinect:
Fast postpress settings are also crucial, saving time right up to the end of the process.
Deadline pressure is often most acute at the postpress stage because this is where all the jobs converge - including jobs that have had to be modified or rescheduled and jobs that arrive late and yet often have to be dealt with immediately. Use Prinect to optimize postpress processes right from the job acceptance and prepress stages by taking into account the structure of the end product and the properties of your postpress machines for planning and impositioning. Prinect automatically gives you access to all the key job data on the machine and to prepress presetting data, enabling you to quickly set up cutters, folders and saddlestitchers step by step.
Better planning is easy
Prinect organizes your postpress operations efficiently. You know which jobs you can process when, whether there are any delays and what priority a particular job has. This makes Prinect invaluable at the end of the production chain in particular. You have an overview of all jobs, which improves capacity planning. You can also predict bottlenecks and take remedial measures at an early juncture. The unique overview of all planned operations makes it possible to identify and combine jobs with similar machine requirements. An existing machine configuration can be used for several jobs, thereby avoiding time-consuming adjustments to the machine configuration and speeding up production significantly.
