Dalim Software And Hell Gravure Systems Introduce Helioflow

Wednesday, October 04, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Kehl, Germany and Kiel, Germany - Dalim Software, a global leader in the design and development of innovative and automated professional production workflow software, and HELL Gravure Systems, a leading supplier of systems for engraving of gravure cylinders, announce the release of HELiOFLOW, a revolutionary interface that provides the first intuitive, automatic gravure imposition tool. HELiOFLOW is the result of a joint technical venture between the two companies. In cooperation with its partners, HELL Gravure Systems is focused on customized automation solutions for the rotogravure industry. The HelioKlischograph K6 engraver integrated into the AutoCon-line offers a fully automated cylinder production. This innovative technology developed into the new industry standard over recent years. HELL's target is to provide the market with the best equipment for optimized quality, best cost/performance ratio and overall automation in the gravure cylinder production. For example, the new, next-generation direct-to-cylinder engraving K6 device is a fully automated unit with up to 18 engraving channels. It can produce gravure cylinders 2,5 to 4,32 meters in length, resulting in enormously large impositions. The HELiOFLOW system affords operators a considerably greater level of production automation using an advanced, high-performance automated imposition engine built from the ground up for the exacting and precise demands of the gravure printing industry. HELiOFLOW interfaces with the Hell FormManager system - as well as with third-party MIS systems and production databases, whether JDF-enabled or otherwise - and, by using the award-winning DALiM TWiST premedia engine, automatically creates a cylinder imposition without any manual intervention. Operators, on a web browser, can also receive a complete view of the imposition prior to engraving a cylinder. Thus, they can administer, edit, manage, and approve the imposition process on-the-fly, anywhere in the world, 24/7, reducing errors and speeding turnaround time. "Dalim Software is very happy to work with a company as prestigious as Hell Gravure Systems. Their engraving systems are noted as the best in the world," remarks Dr. Carol Werlé, CEO of Dalim Software. "Yet, as a company that has many gravure customers as well-including many we share, we believed that we could provide Hell Gravure customers the benefit of increased productivity through remote file submission, advanced JDF-driven file preflighting, job status tracking and, of course, automated cylinder imposition. It is something which we have considerable expertise through our development of DALiM MiSTRAL, recipient of the 2006 GATF InterTech Technology Award, We are always pleased when a partnership provides true benefit to the customer."
