PrintVis: Ready and Able to Manage Your Labels!
Print companies specializing in label production often employ flexography (usually abbreviated to flexo) as their primary method. Flexographic prints are created by using a positively-mirrored master of the desired image as a 3D relief in a rubber/polymer material.
Label manufacturers share the same concerns as any type of printer: How to optimize my production? One persistent challenge is diminished performance caused by a data-transfer bottleneck.
Label printers around the world have used PrintVis to achieve printing efficiency – beginning with the optimization of data and its subsequent distribution. In a successful operation, an expansion of the data transfer channels should eventually result, easily handled by the robust system that is Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
PrintVis offers label-specific features which can be utilized to determine order definition, price estimates, quick ordering and production planning.
Label printing can be done in many ways and with many varieties of media.
The form of delivery of web printed labels depends on the machinery at the customer’s factory, so the direction of winding and whether the label is inside or outside on the roll is critical information.
While a good deal of label and packaging printing is moving to digital – sheet-fed or web – there is still the good old-fashioned screen printing method for more refined printing on plastic, wrapping, bottles etc.
For such label printers the production is mainly unchanged re-prints of labels, re-using plates and dies and even exact mixtures of inks. Often multiple labels will be combined into one continuous production, however they must all use the same paper and die for the production to be optimal.
PrintVis effectively lets you handle detailed information on each individual label, and ensures that you are in fact able to combine the labels set up for a job, ensuring they all are using the same die.
This is just one example of how PrintVis works toward optimizing your label production.
