AutoSet streamlines prepress to press room connectivity integrating Esko Automation Engine with AVT’s inspection system, automating and reducing job setup time on any sized print run.
AVT inline inspection tools are now integrated with the Esko prepress and workflow ecosystem. This means that converters can now measure print quality throughout their complete workflow and communicate color and quality to all stakeholders. This results in easier, faster, and more accurate right first time production.
AVT AutoSet can perform automatic job setup, job verification, auto identify barcodes, text, and die lines for print defect detection and trend analysis. Esko Automation Engine prepares an inspection package with all the relevant data, while the press operator scans a barcode with the job ID or alternatively, selects the print job that is about to start on the press. The AutoSet inspection system then loads the inspection package for that job and inspection starts automatically after setup.
