Creating awestruck wonders

To ensure consistent quality in executing any jobs, printing and finishing need to be given equal importance. But unlike traditional printing, digital process had limitations for finishing. However, some European majors like Muller Martini and Heidelberg have already been striving to facilitate the process by offering high-end postpress solutions for digital printers. Introduced at the recently concluded Hunkeler innovationdays event, the Primera Digital saddle-stitching system from Muller Martini was the perfect combination of traditional finishing methods and new digital technology. But with its high price, the justification towards ROI does not make it feasible for printers who have as of now limited quantum of workload. Resultantly, most of the digital printers in India tend to perform finishing operations manually or semi automatically. And owing to such practices in digital print production, they have not been getting the desired advantages out of their huge investments in digital presses.

Now, it seems wait is getting over with the launch of affordable equipments for finishing from China! At the recently held Print China 2011, one of the exhibitors, JMD Machinery (China) introduced a product for the first time offering ‘robotic solutions’ online finishing for digital equipments. With such offerings, digital printing will start going on automation in finishing effectively. Now, one can feel the change bidding adieu to manual practice in postpress. Undoubtedly, automation in finishing can bring benefits beyond the expectations by adding value to the final products while reducing cycle time. Efficaciously increasing the overall efficiency, the compatible finishing solutions may optimally expand the entire gamut of PSPs’ services ensuring precision and quality.

Ultimately, with the recent developments in the industry, neatness and consistency of digital printing can be extended to finishing process at economical prices. So, it is right time to go ahead with appropriate finishing solutions to see promising future of digital technologies, creating awestruck wonders. Wishing you all much rewarding business in digital arena!
