Duplo automate through post-press with EFI Fiery Impose
FREMONT, Calif., 15.11.2021 – Electronics For Imaging, Inc., has extended its relationship with Duplo International to deliver a new “one-step” integration between EFI™ Fiery® Impose software and the Duplo DC-618 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser to automate job preparation and finisher setup. Setting up both the layout imposition and finishing settings in Fiery Impose with direct communication to the Duplo DC-618 finisher delivers 80% time saving for a custom job’s setup, and reduces the potential for error and rework.
“Duplo International are so excited by this next evolution of its partnership with EFI, through the advanced integration of Duplo finishers and Fiery Impose,” said Andy Cuff product manager at Duplo International. “This integration allows users to truly create an end-to-end productive solution. We believe Fiery Impose now gives print providers the ability to simplify even the most complex finishing projects all in prepress without the need to set up the post press machine.”
With this advanced finishing integration, there is no longer a need to set up a finishing layout on the Duplo controller and import it into Fiery Impose. This is important in busy print shops that, more than ever before, are processing an increased number of smaller jobs. Fiery Impose now has built-in knowledge of the Duplo DC-618 configuration options and constraints. Customers can quickly and confidently create a custom imposition layout through a setup wizard that provides a step-by-step process with interactive, visual feedback showing the addition of cut, crease and perforation settings – all within the displayed constraints of the finisher. The operator will finish the printed job simply by feeding the sheets into the DC-618 without any additional programming setup on the Duplo controller. This workflow accelerates production turnaround time while eliminating operator touchpoints and errors from incompatible layouts.
“Errors in the bindery are arguably the costliest errors in the print production process,” said John Henze, vice president, sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “That’s why we have placed so much focus on ensuring seamless integration between Fiery Impose and finishing solutions. We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with Duplo with this new integration.”
Customers can create a fully automated workflow for repetitive jobs by using Fiery Impose templates with Hot Folders or Fiery JobFlow™ software.
