Ultimate Technographics Inc, the market leading developer of automated digital imposition and finishing software solutions, is proud to announce version 8 of its popular Impostrip OnDemand with PDF/VT imposition and AutoFlow ganging optimization and stacking automation.
Impostrip OnDemand is the first imposition software capable to impose PDF/VT-1 files. This capability allows a user to place PDF/VT files in their Impostrip OnDemand Hot Folder, and Impostrip will take into account the record boundaries in order to produce a reliable Optimized PDF output compatible with any RIP on the market. Producing variable data booklets and books with all relevant markings and dynamic barcodes for quality control is as simple as dropping a file in Impostrip OnDemand hot folder, making high volume transactional printing, mailing and marketing campaigns an efficient process.
Automation drives results in printing, and this is why automating ganging is important to Ultimate. By bringing its ganging algorithms into Impostrip OnDemand v.8 and adding to this automation logic, Ultimate delivers true automatic filling of a sheet, or a roll, with numerous different jobs of different sizes, different page lengths and ordered quantities. AutoFlow job optimization algorithms not only optimize the placement of jobs on a sheet, it also optimizes based on finishing. AutoFlow is more than just planning how to place jobs; it is job optimization with a twist.
Book and Card Stacking:
Ultimate brings the very well known stacking capabilities of Book Stacker into Impostrip OnDemand v.8, allowing users to automatically batch and impose their book orders, cards and statements, based on quantities and page count. Impostrip OnDemand waits for files to logically redistribute and impose them automatically according to set rules while applying the marks, barcodes and banner sheet requirements.
“Our AutoFlow engine for ganging is a feature we are proud of because it is more than typical ganging as we further pushed the automation level to meet customer demand. In today’s competitive print market, we have to think differently about imposition and finishing, and this is why we also delivered PDF/VT imposition” says Julie Watson, VP Marketing, “The right imposition software package is the biggest game changer when you need to defy speed, quality and flexibility requirements never seen before in order to finish first, and I believe customers will find what they need in our Impostrip OnDemand family v.8.”
