Esko Customer Testimonial

With automation engine, we were able to digitalize our products (cutting size templates, automate cutting size calculation), automate repetitive pre-press tasks, standardize our workflow - all resulting in a faster, more efficient way of working and also reducing errors in administrative, prepress tasks. For our finishing operators, manual handling tasks are vastly reduced by the Kongsberg table.

Automation Engine Job Organization

Get rid of manual reporting with instant customer specific reports

Automation Engine creates customer specific reports based on job data and parameters: attributes, customer information, and details that can be extracted from your business system. Even metadata like ink coverage and barcode specifications can be added.

The report can contain 3D views that show what the actual job will look like. These 3D views are generated from the structural data associated with the job.

One workflow to feed all your presses:

Automation Engine is the only workflow that automates the requirements of different printing techniques (digital, flexo, offset…).

This means that only one production file is required for combination print jobs. The job contains the parameters for the various printing processes. These are recognized within the workflow and take their own individual, predetermined path to automatically obtain the specific print settings.
