Imposer: manroland’s 1st automated imposition solution for digital and offset
Collaborative development between the Canadian company Ultimate Technographics and manroland web systems has introduced ‘Imposer’, which is the name of the new member of the digital print family from the latter. The software solution handles job-specific and automated imposing – for both digital and offset printing. Within the past 18 months, manroland web systems has succeeded in establishing its own software solutions for digital printing. MasterQ and WorkflowBridge, which fully automatically control digital finishing aggregates and manage jobs, are applied by printing companies around the world.
Hildegard Heckl, product manager-digital and head of team ‘digital’ at manroland web systems is sure that the new imposition software Imposer is just as intelligent and promises to be equally successful. It combines the specific expertise of its developers – manroland web systems supplied the core intelligence that describes the imposition logics based on the extensive capability of their devices and Ultimate TechnoGraphics executes the processing of the printing data. The software supplies job-specific imposed data that is perfectly prepared for digital and offset printing. Whether for printing books, advertising or newspapers – the Imposer is ideally suited for frequent job and product changeovers. This is where it can fully utilise its flexibility.
