Esko recently showcased the benefits of its latest preconfigured Automation Engine workflow prepress solution for label converters during the HP Indigo Global VIP Event in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Speaking at the event, Adi Levy, CEO of PEERPRINT Ltd., an Israeli label and packaging converter using HP Indigo digital presses and the recently launched version of Esko Automation Engine for prepress workflow automation, said, ‘The difference that the combination of these technologies is making to our business is astonishing. We have increased our productivity by up to 50% since implementing Automation Engine in our facility, which took less than one week to install. The speed and accuracy of jobs now reaching the press is outstanding, enabling us to grow and have more flexibility to respond to our customers’ needs.’
Esko president Mattias Byström commented, ‘Delivering easy-to-use, turnkey solutions to simplify operations, driving value and efficiency, is core to Esko’s strategy, and our collaboration with HP Indigo ensures we have a comprehensive offering. Our latest Automation Engine offers an ‘out of the box’ style solution for label printers to quickly and easily deploy using pre-loaded industry best practice workflows.’
As a web-based workflow solution, Automation Engine automates prepress tasks, speeds up the process, reduces errors and minimises the need for operator intervention. As a result, Automation Engine enables converters to grow production capacity without increasing headcount. Equipment efficiency and productivity is enhanced and the intuitive nature of the technology ensures no prepress expertise is required in-house at the label converter.
Esko Automation Engine ensures label converters can address workflow automation quickly and simply. The latest pre-configured Automation Engine can be up and running in under a week or a bespoke solution can be designed to the specific converter environment. Once familiar with the best practice workflows, customers can also further fine-tune workflows to best match the particular challenges of their production set up.
