Automation Engine Modules

Automation Engine is a modular solution. It comes as a complete and feature-rich system, but it can be scaled with extra optional modules.

What customers say

The automation allows for less errors in our production flow as it is driven by database data. As long as the job details are entered correctly by the CSR, the system does what it is told and projects are produced correctly.

Viewing & QA prepress quality control

Detect content errors on any file type prior to any output, this module offers detailed quality control tools for all jobs: braille reading, barcode scanning, version comparison.

The Viewing & QA Module is an optional module offering extensive prepress quality control tools in the Viewer, including compare functionality and the ability to view bitmap data. Additionally this module contains the automated comparing functionality.

The Viewer handles all common prepress formats, images and RIP data. Check separations, trim and media sizes, compare differences between design files and production files, or check if all corrections have been applied. Compare between the production file and RIPped data. Automated Global Vision compare tools are available in the workflow for comparison of larger batches of files.


Automated Flexo Platemaking

The automated flexo platemaking module allows running a fully automated workflow. Prepare .LEN files automatically for plate making. The Automation Engine Platemaking module removes the need manually to crop and extend .LEN files, add QC files, add the Kongsberg table cut path for non staggered files. The new merger functionality gives the user the flexibility to either:

  • Automatically merge files then directly to the CDI queue using Device Manager. This functionality is typically used for in-house platemaking at Label/Flexible Packing converters and pre-media companies where the plates are standard sizes and thicknesses
  • Semi automate merging to utilize plate off cuts, reducing plate waste. This typically used for Pre-Media companies where there are different sheet sizes, plate thicknesses and delivery requirements.
  • Finally the traditional manually merging of .LEN files is also possible for special functions, such as over lapping staggered cut files
