InSoft Automation, a leading provider of Imposition, Ganging & Planning automation software, announces the release of version 12.2 of its ‘Imp software’. This is a significant release with many smart features & technologies that will simplify workflow and automate tasks for large format and labels and digital printers.
Dynamic Bleed Generation: At the time of generating imposition PDF, the software can automatically generate bleed when it is missing in the source PDF/JPEG/PNG/TIFF files. The software will automatically analyze the required bleed on the layout, compare it with availability of bleed in the original artwork and then automatically generate bleed by mirroring content at the border. This makes for a better workflow, removing the need for an additional step/operation in PDF/artwork preparation stage.
Cut Contour Creation: The software can automatically generate the cutting outline for an artwork using various strategies. It can generate this outline from non-white pixels or from vector paths in a PDF page. Options to smoothen the outline, spread/choke by an offset amount and delete any holes is also available.
Automatic Generation of White Separation & More: For jobs printed on transparent substrates such as glass, plastic, acrylic, or substrates with non-white background, it is important to have “White” separation layer as barrier/background on which the artwork separations will be printed. This white layer should have same image area as of printing separations. The software can now generate this “white” separation geometric area and create a masking mark that can be included in the imposed PDF output.
Imp software from InSoft goes well beyond standard imposition and planning tasks to solve pain points for users with innovative proprietary technologies.
