Pre Press Update

KNP upgrades its workflow through Heidelberg

We have now invested in the new Prinect workflow and Tharstern MIS upgrades which it hopes will give us a 10 to 15% improvement in productivity but also pave the way for our web-to-print portal which will be released in January 2019.

Our studio manager Dave Witherden has monitored Prinect since its launch and is delighted with the decision. Dave and production manager Steve Omer will undertake a two-stage training programme during the installation and integration period in September.

β€œWe can seamlessly integrate Prinect with the latest Tharstern MIS modules and we will be able to quickly and easily output to both our Speedmaster SM 74-10-P and our Xerox iGen presses,” says Steve. β€œThe increase in productivity this will give us means our customers will benefit from quicker turnrounds immediately and when we implement the web portal, either at the end of this year or the beginning of next, customers will receive proofs quickly and accurately and be able to amend and return them easily. We will also offer templates to those wanting to load jobs online.”

We have also switched its plates supply from Kodak to Heidelberg.
