Amtech, a provider of software solutions for the corrugated and folding carton manufacturing industries, is collaborating with HP to integrate the Amtech ERP solution for the HP PageWide C500 Press, which the companies say will enable converters to optimize production and enhance their brand customers.

The EnCore software system is comprised of a set of modules that address key components of a packaging plants operations, processes, and procedures. The EnCore integration, they say, will benefit HP PageWide C500 converters with automated job submission, tracking, control, bilateral data retrieval and visibility to press status, all using the standard JDF/JMF print protocol. The solution will create an all-digital, end-to-end no touch workflow that enables businesses to design, price and order packaging online, while keeping everyone in the supply-chain informed and collaborative.

With the new integration, Amtech is also adding new functionality to the EnCore All-In-One Cloud-based packaging solution, such as automated schedule downloads, production reporting, job and press analytics.
