Nowadays, the application of digital printing technology by traditional printing companies has risen to the strategic decision goal. This is not only the demand for the landing of high-end printing technology, but also the hope for the development of traditional China printing companies.

Objectively speaking, the introduction of digital printing also puts forward new requirements for the digital workflow, which are mainly reflected in: color management, automatic imposition, automatic splitting of imposition files, support for JDF/JMF standards, and integration of ERP. Specific details As follows:

1. Color management: After adopting digital printing, the printing cost is relatively high, and the color controllability requirements are relatively improved. This requires the digital workflow of traditional printing companies to have unified color management functions based on the document specification inspection. Perform refined color management for different papers and different digital printing presses.

2. Automatic imposition: most of the digital prints are small in quantity and various in variety. If the traditional imposition method is still used, it will inevitably affect the production efficiency. Therefore, the digital workflow should have the automatic imposition function, so that only batch files are set in the digital workflow Processing method, it will automatically assemble the batch files into imposition files that can be recognized by the digital printing machine according to the requirements.

3. Automatic splitting of imposition files: For traditional printed matter, digital printing machines are sometimes used for proofing or replenishment, and the original imposition files are not suitable for printing on digital printing machines. At this time, it is necessary to remake impositions that conform to the digital printing machine. document. Therefore, the digital workflow should have the function of splitting the imposition files generated by the original digital workflow into imposition files that can be recognized by the digital printing machine.

4. Support JDF/JMF standards: At present, most digital printing presses support JDF/JMF standards. In order to automate the production process, the digital workflow should also support the open JDF/JMF standards so that the processed files can be sent directly to the digital Print on the printing press.

5. Integrate ERP: In order to improve the production efficiency of digital printing and monitor the production status of products more intuitively, the digital workflow should be well integrated with the ERP system. Otherwise, when the documents enter the digital workflow, the ERP system cannot monitor the documents in real time. Processing progress will affect production scheduling. At present, most ERP systems on the market cannot realize real-time communication with digital workflows, which requires unified standards from relevant suppliers.
