Intelligently networked: Offset und Digital printing
Networking and automation have taken on enormous importance in pressrooms over the last few years. Digital printing is characterised by shorter runs, rapid format changes, personalisation and customisation. What this means for printing houses is make ready times and downtime. manroland web systems has blazed a trail with complex integration services for many years now.
PECOM-X is how we integrate Newspaper, Commercial and Digital printing applications. MasterQ is how mrws provide job management solutions, which avail of interfaces to the MIS systems and provide job data to the Digital print line as well as the finishing equipment. Additionally jobs are sorted and verified. For the purpose of comprehensive networking we make it possible that all third party components like e.g. those from Rima, HP, Kodak or Goss can be controlled and administrated through interfaces and open communication and even that offset technology can be connected. . The Imposer software is how we additionally provide a flexible and fully automated imposition solution that enables dynamic changeover of products to other production lines. A central role is played, alongside that of networking, by the provision of comfortable and simple control through intuitive operating panels.
In this issue we want to introduce you to our new highlights in the segments of automation and workflow solutions; from “smart” all the way to “one-touch”. You can also connect the worlds of offset and digital printing with each other by using our intelligent solutions, thereby ensuring decisively higher efficiency in production sequences and production lines.
