The most important presentation method for prepress, printing integration and digital growth is digital workflow. The use and expansion of digital workflow has encouraged foreign post-press manufacturers to develop and print digital effects of post-press settings. CIP4 is based on A digital workflow example like JDF, which is expanded from CIP3. CIP3 combines prepress, printing, and postpress processing, and CIP4 expands it to include process management such as responsibility management and production management. Complete system, which has a series of functions such as order receiving, prepress, printing, postpress processing, product delivery, and cost accounting.
In the post-press boundary, from the completion of digital folds, computer digitization, folding, stapling, gluing, attaching and pasting, three-sided cutting, automatic crawling, sales, and transportation have also been basically completed. Governance. Digital printing, including post-press processing, is each fully digital production process. After the combination of JDF and the governance system (MIS), the Baiji digital printing press and the relative pre-press and post-press settings are online to meet the needs of the hundreds of printing processes. print.
In post-press processing, there is not much use of CIP4 at present, and the cutting process is the most important. For example, the Heiburg company's Pola Compucut cutting system adopts the CIP3 workflow. The MBO company's Navigator operating system can complete the folding machine via the network And the message transmission between prepress and print settings; MBO's data manager is still an open database management system that can be used for long-distance inspection and manipulation, and is battled on the Windows control platform.
