Automating the step-and-repeat process
The Heidelberg Prinect production integration is driven by the creation of a production job in the CERM MIS. Based on the details in the CERM MIS, it automates the step-and-repeat process and generates print-ready files suitable for platemaking or submission to a supported digital press.
Automating repetitive tasks saves time and reduces errors. It also allows your prepress operators to focus on added value operations – their real expertise – with operator independent consistency in file handling, naming and storage.
Positioning products for step and repeat
Positioning the products in lanes (= roll-based production) or in stations on sheets (= sheetfed packaging production) is part of the production job creation process in the CERM MIS. That way, you send detailed instructions to Heidelberg Prinect, ensuring the workflow in Heidelberg Prinect automatically executes the step-and-repeat process – resulting in print-ready files for production.
A message from Heidelberg Prinect updates the job status progress in the CERM MIS, allowing real-time follow-up in scheduling.
Bidirectional data exchange
The CERM - Heidelberg Prinect integration is based on bidirectional JDF-JMF data exchange.
