Screen Americas and OneVision Software create label printing workflow partnership
OneVision Software and Screen Americas have partnered for integration of OneVision's automated label printing software, DigiLabel, working with Screen’s Equios Workflow.
The announcement builds upon previously successful collaborations between the two companies in Europe and Japan. Screen and OneVision Software will demonstrate the end-to-end integration live at Screen’s Labelexpo Americas 2018 exhibit booth.
The integration of the two software products with Screen’s high speed Truepress Jet L350UV and L350UV+ inkjet label presses provides smooth production workflows and maximum utilization of the presses’ capabilities. In addition to streamlining the prepress stage, DigiLabel optimizes the entire process from order receipt through artwork preparation for printing, production planning and automated job transmission to printing and stamping presses.
‘Screen's and OneVision's solutions complement each other perfectly,’ said Hussein Khalil, CEO of OneVision. ‘Label printers will benefit substantially from this collaboration. By combining DigiLabel and Equios workflow, order management and label production are automated. This increases machine utilization so that label printers are now able to work even more efficiently.’
While the Equios Workflow focuses on ripping PDF files and providing printer queue management, high-end screening, color matching and spot color adjustments, DigiLabel supplies Equios with optimized PDF files including any required register marks, correct bleeds as well as any required white masks and varnish masks. The preparation of the PDF files ahead of the printing process accelerates the entire printing process, guaranteeing a consistently high degree of quality.
‘Also due to the automated workflows and technical plates that can be generated with relative ease within DigiLabel, there is the opportunity to maximize the multi-pass printing capability of the Trupress Jet L350UV to print spot varnish, opaque white and foiling effects, while minimizing production time and associated consumable costs,’ said Charlie Brown, labels and packaging solutions manager, Screen Americas, commenting on the close interaction between those two solutions.
