Wallace Graphics Gets More Efficient with Heidelberg Prinect WorkflowOctober 5, 2011

The company retains its staff of four prepress operators, who are now more efficient, since all phases of job preparation can be handled at their individual workstations.
“Customer files are prepared from the native application at the prepress technician’s workstation, where a PDF is prepared and placed within the Prinect Prepress Manager cockpit,” Foster explained. “Once the PDF is introduced into the workflow, it is automatically preflighted, and PDFs are generated and handed off to the Remote Access server, which notifies the client that proofs are awaiting approval. The same prepress technician prepares an imposition layout via Signa Station interactively.”
Once the client approves, the job progresses to imposition proofs, contract proofs, and plating.
“This is all accomplished without the technician having to leave his seat,” Foster said, “And I can get home for dinner on time, with no fear of a breakdown occurring in my absence.”
