In an industry built around impending deadlines, there is rarely a minute - let alone an hour - to spare. Efficient and effective color management is key to a print shop’s success, helping them to maintain hard-earned reputation and secure repeat business. Importantly, sound color management is vital for wide-format PSPs looking to maximize the productivity potential of automation and ensure their workflow is performing at its peak.

Amid predictions that 2019 is set to be a challenging time for many UK businesses, leading packaging solutions supplier Antalis has revealed that improving the impact that packaging and packing is having on warehouse operations and transport logistics, whilst adopting eco-friendly solutions will be the key trends in the year ahead.

"The world’s best manufacturers in the industry will meet in two halls for 4 days to present the next generation of high-performance technology for digital printing and finishing.”. This is what the Hunkeler Innovationdays website says. OneVision's contribution at the Hunkeler Innovationdays from 25-28 February 2019: High-performance automation software that maps an end-to-end workflow from job submission, through MIS, prepress and press to finishing. In order to increase job throughput, optimize print quality and achieve greater profitability in digital printing, a perfect interplay of software and hardware is crucial. After all, more incoming orders with shorter runs in tighter time windows require one thing above all else: automated processes and smooth print production.

Enfocus, the leader in PDF quality control, advanced PDF editing and workflow automation for the graphic arts industry; and Avanti, the market leader in Print MIS software; today announced a collaborative partnership toward providing integrated solutions for customer success. The partnership is anchored on an integration between Enfocus Switch and Avanti Slingshot®.

Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry, today announced the availability of Version 10 of Aleyant tFLOW, its powerful digital workflow automation and customer service solution for commercial, large format, label, and specialty graphics businesses.

Increased job throughput, better print quality and more profitability – these continue to be the goals for print service providers in the coming year. More incoming orders with smaller print runs in tighter windows require the adaptation to automated processes. The decisive factor here is a perfect interaction between software and hardware.

Enfocus, the leader in PDF quality control, advanced PDF editing and workflow automation for the graphic arts industry announces the release of Switch 2018 update 2. This latest update delivers an abundant list of feature additions, customer requested changes and fixes. Input received from customers during the Switch World Tour events weighed heavily in the development of this update. The highlights of the Switch 2018 update 2 include an online, opt-in Insight Dashboard, improvements to the designer and several flow elements, additional features to job boards and performance enhancements.

The cost pressure on print service providers is increasing. Prices for paper and raw materials continue to rise, while end customers do not accept higher prices. To achieve a sustainable profitability it all comes down to only one single measure: increase the degree of automation throughout print production – from prepress and print data preparation to printing and finishing.

Today’s label converters face the key challenges of producing large volumes of high quality, short run jobs with quicker deadlines. This creates lead-time pressure and complex workflows supporting the need for greater efficiencies.

There are many challenges facing large format printers, but production can be enhanced and operational efficiency increased with software that delivers faster approval cycles, eliminates file errors, reduces idle time, improves workflow control and simplifies complex manual steps of digital finishing equipment. At booth 938, during SGIA Expo 2018, October 18-20, Esko will focus on its new QuickStart solutions: Automation Engine QuickStart for Sign and WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated, as well as two Kongsberg tables, showcasing industry-unique end-to-end production workflows.

McKinsey’s report ‘Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transition in a time of automation’ suggests that while past technological innovations have boosted job creation to offset disruption, the impact of automation remains a source of anxiety across sectors – and digital print is no exception.
