PECOM-X excellent planning as a basis for autoprint.
The PECOM-X modules for planning and workflow ensure efficient, economical print production and optimal use of all automation features.
The proven PECOM PressManager (PPM) and the MasterQ software module allow planning and implementing efficient and economical print production and optimal use of all automation features.
PECOM-X PressManager (PPM)
PPM is the basis for all autoprint functions. With its flexible interfaces, the software module consolidates all the data and improves press availability via production planning. This saves precious time and ensures seamless, automatic production changes. The PECOM PressManager prepares standard products virtually automatically, ensured primarily by the wide variety of presetting options. Nonetheless, for non-standard cases, the system also provides complete freedom and flexibility for manual planning at the desired level. Planning includes variable page widths, a variety of center spread pages, plate screen calculations, and printing quality.
MasterQ ensures efficient production with automatic job sorting. Digital printing of ultra-small print runs is an area whose efficiency can benefit particularly well from planning production sequences. For this reason, manroland web systems has developed MasterQ for the synchronization of MIS systems, prepress, or web2print applications with the printing system and finishing processes. The optimal production sequence is determined for incoming orders, e.g. via the printing company website, even for several different production modules.
The software offers industrial automation for digital finishing. The module automatically adjusts all folding components, any required job information is delivered via an open interface by JDF/JMF file. WorkflowBridge verifies the validity of each job before it is processed.
Imposer – automatic imposition in digital and offset printing
The “Imposer” software is perfect for mixed production environments: It enables job-specific and fully automatic imposition of job data for digital and offset printing.
The unique technique also allows for dynamic changes between production types. When it comes to frequent job and product changeovers, Imposer’s flexibility is key. Imposer creates the imposed print data fully automatically, no matter whether for offset or digital production. The software analyzes product data and knows the production paths and environment in detail, allowing Imposer to generate and implement process instructions tailored to the print job. Corresponding to the printing process, the content is placed correctly, while the necessary marks are set precisely.
This does away with the need for time-consuming, labor-intensive manual tasks in both offset and digital printing.
