manroland web systems New Member of Prime Network

Press release from the issuing company

Renowned production companies of the graphics industry have joined together under the name Prime Network in order to develop standards together for efficient workflow during newspaper production.  The members use their branch expertise to develop easily applicable and future-proof solutions. manroland web systems has been a member of the network since August 2016.

Prime Network mainly focuses on standardizing and simplifying work processes in order to ensure a more efficient production. manroland web systems has a lot to contribute with its in-house developed automation solutions for newspaper printing.  When it comes to defined standards, universal interfaces, simplified production processes and therefore more economic efficiency, the Augsburg based company has been at the forefront for years.

“We are delighted about our inclusion into the Prime Network. In a changing market it is of utmost importance to optimise processes and define common standards, in order to not only create higher efficiency but also future security. The manroland web systems automation solutions are already perfectly suitable for this today. Not only in our printing machines but also in third-party presses. We are looking forward to be able to apply and develop them further in new partnerships,” Dr. Gregor Enke, development and technologies manager at manroland web systems, explains.

Especially when it comes to complex work processes like newspaper production it is of vital importance that all interfaces function easily and intuitively. In the course of the production process from the publisher through the printing plant on to the distribution, the newspaper passes a line of stations where components from different manufacturers are in use and have to cooperate seamlessly. Prime Network combines the competences of different companies, makes cooperation easier and therefore creates added value for the whole branch.
