Second Screen Truepress Provides Disaster Insurance for Sebis DirectFebruary 5, 2013
“We can bring the same security and accuracy to dynamic content and have total control of all colors on the document without maintaining a warehouse loaded with forms,” Sanders said.
As with Sebis’ first Truepress Jet520, the dual-engine duplex model prints both sides of the web roll at once, delivering excellent registration. It features a roll-to-sheet arrangement with dynamic perforation. Sebis combined the press with a paper handling line from Lasermax Roll Systems. The Truepress/Lasermax combination produces simple and complex perforations inline. Perfectly stacked bills, documents, forms and payment stubs with edge-to-edge color exit the system ready for assembly.
The Truepress Jet520 comes standard with the SV-110 high-speed parallel processing controller, incorporating the latest Adobe RIP. To derive the most benefit from the Truepress Jet520’s color capabilities and printing speed of 420 feet-per-minute, Sebis outfitted the new press with the innovative EQUIOS workflow. The company will integrate EQUIOS into its Chicago-area Truepress Jet520 this year.
EQUIOS, Screen’s Adobe PDF Print Engine 2-based digital front end, automatically extracts and caches shared reusable elements included in PDF and PDF/VT variable data. It quickly RIPs the data and outputs it to the printing device. Combining this processing with load balancing achieves an optimal printing environment. A built-in imposition function for variable data expands the application range available for the Truepress Jet520. In addition, EQUIOS’ unique inspection system provides a high level of accuracy for variable data-rich pages.
“EQUIOS is a powerful workflow that is similar to the file processing system conventional commercial printers use for CTP production,” Sanders said. “It improves color management and imposition, and expands our ability to print short-run color jobs and other projects that fall outside our normal transactional documents. The Truepress Jet520 allowed us to add print-on-demand books to our portfolio. We are showing high-quality newsletters and book samples to potential customers who don’t think of Sebis for those kinds of products. The Screen technology provides relevance as a print provider because we are fully digital.”
