Best of Both Worlds at Your Fingertips
As of drupa 2012, all of Heidelberg’s short-run, cut-sheet digital print solutions for the commercial printing sector will be grouped under the name Heidelberg Linoprint C. The Linoprint C series will be presented with Heidelberg’s new Prinect Digital Print Manager, which enables print shops to manage and calculate both their offset and digital print jobs from a single workflow. This powerful solution provides users with a highly efficient, transparent digital print workflow with a wide range of functions, including variable data management, postpress with digital inline finishing systems, and a document-oriented workflow. Printers that implement these solutions will benefit from the interlinking of offset and digital printing to boost their competitiveness. Heidelberg also will show printers how they can use their integrated Prinect workflow to route jobs quickly to the most cost-efficient production equipment. Optional integration into the entire Prinect print shop workflow gives users access to functions such as job planning and costing, standardized color management via Prinect Color Toolbox, as well as end-to-end management and production control. Users will enjoy unprecedented flexibility, optimized production, and significant added value, compared with rival systems.
