PRINECT: How presses communicate
The Preset Link option for Prinect CP2000 Center and Print Center press consoles not only makes it possible to transfer CIP4-PPF ink key presets from Prinect Prepress Interface to a press over the plant’s Ethernet production network—it also enables all so-equipped presses to communicate with each other.
For example, assume that a job is set to run on a Speedmaster press that is down for scheduled maintenance or is busy printing another job. With Preset Link, all of the presets for the job can be sent over the network to a second Speedmaster for production. All preset values can be transferred from press to press, eliminating the need for duplicate presetting efforts on the second machine. Preset Link is standard for all Speedmaster presses with a Prinect CP2000 Center or Print Center console and four or more printing units.
