Ultimate TechnoGraphics and Muller Martini have joined forces to offer a highly innovative and efficient workflow that automates imposition for on-demand and personalized books and magazines.
Located in Montreal, Ultimate TechnoGraphics is a leader in imposition and finishing software. Muller Martini is integrating Ultimate’s Impostrip VDP software capabilities as part of its Connex data and process management system to manage the entire manufacturing process, from job submission to finished books and magazines. This will result in a more efficient and cost-effective solution for book-of-one and personalized magazines.
Impostrip Scalable PDF/VT imposition software opens new possibilities in the field of industrial inkjet printing because it enables dynamic imposition for variable-data printing. The key element is the way the PDF data from upstream ordering is handled to produce variable size and quantity copies, and build the data with personalized notations and barcodes for various purposes, such as tracking and finishing.
Commented Joanne David, President and CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics, “We’re quite excited with the result of our joint efforts with Muller Martini. Together we’re showing a new way to produce variable books empowered by PDF/VT imposition that’s built for speed and sustainability.”
Added Andreas Aplien, Muller Martini Product Manager for the Connex Workflow System, “The handling of PDF/VT within our workflow enables us to achieve a higher productivity level for SigmaLine, Muller’s digital finishing system. The fully integrated system is now able to industrially produce pure “Book of one” jobs. And, it’s allowed us to change the slogan ‘PDF In – Book Out’ to ‘PDF/VT In – Variable Books Out.’ ”
