Explore the New Age of Automation with PrintFactory at FESPA Global Print Expo 2018

May 14, 2018

At this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo (15th-18th May), PrintFactory will explore ‘the power of possibility’ on Stand 1.1-C38 by demonstrating the profitability boosting potential of true and total automation for large format print businesses.

With recent statistics suggesting that up to two thirds of European print jobs are yet to be fully automated - the PrintFactory team will be using FESPA as a platform to show LFP businesses how they can start to close the gap by embracing cloud-based automated technologies. By showcasing how automation can resolve some of the biggest challenges in large format workflows - including bottlenecks, wastage and inconsistency of output – we’ll be encouraging FESPA delegates to overcome their ‘automation anxiety’ and think about how the technology can propel their operations ahead of the competition.

Driven by the goal of removing complexity from the workflow process, the PrintFactory team has developed automation solution that gives wide format businesses peace of mind that their entire production workflow – from job submission to print – is running as efficiently as possible.

One of the unique features of PrintFactory’s automated solution is ‘dynamic nesting’. This uses deadline dictates priority (DDI) and just in time (JIT) techniques to test the most efficient output conditions before automatically delivering jobs to the RIP for output via the cloud. As the technology only commits jobs to a specific output device at the last moment, jobs can be automatically rescheduled or replaced with a different job if there is a change in priority or if a device goes offline.

Having multiple workflow touchpoints in the black hole of the production floor leaves more opportunity for human error, creating inconsistencies, delays and wastage. By deploying a technology that can streamline, manage and automate the process with a unified, end-to-end workflow, print operations can practically eliminate such inefficiencies.

PrintFactory Cloud also allows users to integrate existing MIS/ERP systems into their workflow for a true end-to-end automated production process, while its browser-based dashboard enables business owners to leverage insights from real-time data reporting. Our recent Version 6 software release delivered multiple enhancements to PrintFactory’s automation features to support more efficient job management, web2print workflows and reduce waste based on output release criteria.

Visit us on stand 1.1-C38 at FESPA Global Print Expo between 15th - 18th May to discover how automation can help your LFP business realise its profitability and productivity potential.
