Duplo International and Ultimate TechnoGraphics’ Impostrip Pro software solution removes manual touchpoints, reduces bottlenecks throughout the workflow, and enables a print provider to handle post-press automation together with pre-press, thus achieving a greater lever of efficiency out of their Duplo multi-finishing equipment. There are benefits for both commercial and digital printers.
– Freeing up resources to allow staff to be more productive throughout the business.
– Delivering consistent high quality that customers expect.
– Improving production efficiencies and providing a faster turnaround time.
– Preventing errors, which in turns reduce waste.
The Impostrip Pro software solution enables any member of a team to take an order, drop a single PDF onto a Hotfolder, and print and finish within a few clicks of the mouse. Not only is it easy to use, its low cost makes it affordable even for smaller digital print providers. The person who creates the job ticket easily and instantly handles job imposition as well as adding the barcode and registration marks for Postpress Automation, thus removing pre-press and post-press bottlenecks.
‘Given the changing market conditions, workflow automation is critical if a customer wants to remain competitive. Our software solution enables digital printers to get the most automation out of their investment, allowing them to handle short-run jobs and print on demand cost effectively and quickly, even with level entry finishing solutions such as our DC-618,’ says Andy Cuff, Product Specialist Manager at Duplo International.
‘Because the automated process holds all your configured requirements, it also reduces the need of specialist operators on your finishing device. You can therefore deploy your staff based on your requirements throughout your operations and enhance your adaptability’ he added. ‘You can even get the imposition done and finishing barcode added remotely, whilst your staff on-site simply load the printed sheet into your Duplo finishing device and let our automated solutions do the rest’.
The Impostrip Pro solution will first be introduced on Duplo Multifinisher Range and will be rolled out across Duplo’s digital packaging solutions, Duplo print embellishment solutions and Duplo bookletmakers by the end of 2020.
