Dynagram announces integration partnership with LithoTechnics Metrix

Press release from the issuing company

Chicago, IL., September 9, 2005 - Dynagram, the industry leader in imposition solutions, and LithoTechnics Pty Limited, the developers of the innovative automatic layout calculator for commercial printers, announced today the interoperability between their respective solutions DynaStrip and Metrix. Dynagram and LithoTechnics will offer more tightened solution integration to joint customers. Used together, Metrix and DynaStrip simplify complex layout creation for production planners and prepress operators. DynaStrip imports job layouts created in Metrix, including all pages, pagination pattern, page orientation, gutters, and custom marks, and seamlessly generates the imposition. Thanks to this solution mix, printers ensure efficient and accurate job creation, maximize press utilization, and minimize the costs associated with inefficient makeready times and consumable wastage. "Every job ganged up with another saves a makeready and a set of plates, and makes press time available for another job," commented Rohan Holt, founder of LithoTechnics. "Because gang printing directly affects major equipment utilization, even humble improvements in the number of jobs ganged per year can increase profits dramatically. By tightly integrating Metrix's layout calculations with DynaStrip, double handling and potential errors are eliminated, and workflow efficiencies further increased." “In the throes of consumable costs and production overhead, job creation can undeniably make or break the ROI on a press run,” said Tracey-Lee Batsford, General Manager of Prepress Solutions at Dynagram. “With Metrix and DynaStrip, printers can proactively blueprint layouts, easily pairing job parameters with production realities. The interoperability between our two solutions focuses on our customers' main concern: delivering bottom-line results. ”
