ONYX Graphics, Inc. has announced that ASTRON print, s.r.o., will install ONYX Thrive software to manage its large format workflow. Based in the Czech Republic and one of Europe’s largest print service providers, ASTRON print offers a wide range of large and narrow format print services using digital, screen and offset technologies. The sale was made through HSW, ONYX Graphics’ authorized distributor in the Czech Republic.
In evaluating ONYX Thrive software, Jan Hodek, Business Unit Director at ASTRON print, said he was looking for precision processing because data is becoming increasingly complex. “We were also looking for speed and the ability to choose how to handle the files,” said Hodek. “We need to handle very complex tasks with complex set-ups, while completely automating other tasks. ONYX Thrive software gives us the speed required and the flexibility in file handling that we need.”
The ONYX Thrive solution will manage 20 active printers, 16 RIPs and seven Job Editors supporting equipment using UV, latex, dye-based, solvent, screen and toner technologies, as well as flatbed and vinyl cutters.
ONYX Thrive workflow software
ONYX Thrive workflow software is a scalable print production solution based on Adobe PDF Print Engine technology. ONYX Thrive software manages the wide format print production workflow process offering print service providers accurate, predictable, high quality printing results and reducing costly errors.
ONYX Thrive software is designed for service providers that want to invest in workflow software to manage their print production environment rather than purchase separate raster image processor (RIP) products that require individual operator attention. Print service providers can feel confident about investing in workflow software that fits the way their shops work today, with the peace of mind that comes with the ability to scale their ONYX Thrive software as business grows.
