OneVision Software and Screen Americas have partnered to make day-to-day production for label printers easier.
Under the partnership, OneVision’s DigiLabel automated label printing software solution will be integrated with Screen’s Equios Workflow.
The integration will streamline production time and help achieve cost and production savings.
The collaboration builds upon previous partnerships between the two firms in Europe and Japan.
Screen said that the integration of the two software solutions with its high speed Truepress Jet L350UV and L350UV+ inkjet label presses ensures smooth production workflows with maximum utilization of the presses’ capabilities.
Additionally, the DigiLabel optimizes the entire process from order receipt through artwork preparation for printing, production planning and automated job transmission to printing and stamping presses.
OneVision CEO Hussein Khalil said: “Screen’s and OneVision’s solutions complement each other perfectly.
“Label printers will benefit substantially from this collaboration. By combining DigiLabel and Equios workflow, order management and label production are automated. This increases machine utilization so that label printers are now able to work even more efficiently.”
The Equios Workflow is designed to focus on ripping PDF files and provide printer queue management, high-end screening, color matching and spot color adjustments.
The DigiLabel provides Equios with optimized PDF files including any required register marks, correct bleeds as well as any required white masks and varnish masks.
The PDF files preparation prior to printing process accelerates the entire printing process while guaranteeing a consistently high degree of quality, the firm noted.
The continuous supply of correct and optimized printing data further heightens the utilization of the highly productive Truepress Jet L350UV and provides increased throughput.
Screen Americas labels & packaging solutions manager Charlie Brown said: “Also due to the automated workflows and technical plates that can be generated with relative ease within DigiLabel, there is the opportunity to maximize the multi-pass printing capability of the Trupress Jet L350UV to print spot varnish, opaque white and foiling effects, while minimizing production time and associated consumable costs.”
The firms are planning to demonstrate the end-to-end integration at Screen’s Label Expo Americas 2018 event scheduled to be held in US from 25-27 September 2018.
