Domino Digital Printing Solutions is targeting the label industry with its newest Digital Front End workflow for its N-Series range of colour presses. Described as providing improved operating speed and streamlined automation, DFEv2.0 maintains compatibility with the latest Esko code base and can work with a number of VDP (variable data printing) formats.
“Workflow integration is a fundamental component for an efficient digital printing process that should not be underestimated,” said Simon Howes, Product Manager, Digital Printing Solutions at Domino. “The effective management of press time while optimizing print quality needs to be guaranteed, especially for brand-oriented sectors such as labelling and packaging.”
The new screener, Domino ScreenPro, streamlines workflow by combining several processes into a single JDF workflow, which the company explains enhances speed and efficiency as well as enabling full offline VDP operation and additional capabilities within DFEv2.0. When compared to DFEv1.2, the increase in job processing speeds is significant, according to Domino, and has a major impact when using multiple page PDF files for variable data printing. The RIP-to-print ratio of the latest version of ScreenPro is four to five times faster than the previous DFE solution.
With the introduction of a new JDF workflow, the need for manual file conversions is removed, while key information such as lead-in/lead-out, copy count by quantity or print run length can be passed from the DFE directly to the digital press.
“While speed and automation are the two features likely to appeal the most to label printers, versatility also has an important role to play,” said Howes. “The new workflow adds the ability to work with various VDP formats, such as multiple page PDF and PDF/VT files for the printing of variable data, barcodes and 2D barcodes, offering the printer a wider range of options to work with.”
