Montreal, Canada – Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation solutions, is proud to work with Documation, a full-service commercial printer, to deliver thousands of on demand print jobs every day.
Documation acquired a mix of different offset and digital printing presses over the 25 years they have been in business: HP PageWide T240 HD Web Presses, Xerox iGen 5 and iGen 150 Digital Presses, Canon imagePRESS C10000VP Digital Presses and a Komori Lithrone 28’’ 6-Color Offset Press. Every print device was equipped with its own independent workflow solution. The technology disparities rapidly became an irritant to Jeremy Stanek, General Manager at Documation: ‘’With the variety of customers, applications and equipment we support, it became evident that we needed to find a workflow that could tie it all together.’’
The Eau Claire, Wisconsin located printer decided to build their own workflow system called docuPOD to streamline their production. Their production tools include Ultimate Impostrip® Scalable for hands-off automated imposition. For commercial print jobs, Enfocus Switch moves the incoming files into Ultimate Impostrip® AutoFlow Hot Folder based on information from the MIS system. Ultimate Impostrip® then automatically generates the gang run imposition, respecting the integrity and number of copies of each job, and sends it to the respective DFE of the press it will run on. ‘’This process is completely automated as the job information is seamlessly passed from the software solutions to the presses.’’ adds Stanek.
Today, Documation produces a wide variety of printed products in a future-proofed on demand print environment, relying on multiple printing, finishing and software solutions such as automated imposition by Ultimate TechnoGraphics. The modularity enables them to be future-proofed and ready to take on whatever challenges the future might bring.
