LithoTechnics Inc. has released Metrix 2011.0, a new version of the venerable software for automated job planning and imposition creation.
“We are always looking for ways to make Metrix better – faster, smarter, and more automated,” said Rohan Holt, President of LithoTechnics. “Metrix 2011.0 has some great new features that will put even more planning and imposition tasks into the no-brainer category, eliminate more chances for error, and enhance the ease of use for which Metrix has become known.”
In a press release about the new version of Metrix, LithoTechnics shared the following comments from beta testers, which includes Edmonton’s McCallum Print Group:
Leah Graham, Workflow Supervisor, McCallum Print Group (Edmonton):
“The automatic collation marks will save significant time during the imposition of book work and improve accuracy in our final layouts. All of the keyboard command updates will make Metrix more user-friendly and make our operators more efficient.”
Piet Scheepstra, Koninklijke Van Gorcum (Netherlands):
“The most important new features for us are the automated collation marks, which allow considerable improvements in the bindery for sewn products with wrap-arounds/outserts, and the expanded clone functionality. We are also moving to implement more facets of existing Metrix automation, including JDF to the cutter and closer integration with the MultiPress MIS system.”
