Finisare inline

Deblocaţi posibilitatea de apariţie a productivităţii mărite şi a diferenţierii produselor

Măriţi-vă profiturile, reduceţi timpul de producţie şi diferenţiaţi-vă produsul – cu finisarea inline


Oferirea abilităţilor de finisare inline vă permite să vă măriţi marginile de profit pentru job-urile de imprimare, în timp ce reduce timpul dvs. de producţie, reduce costurile muncii, îmbunătăţeşte controlul calităţii, reduce deşeurile şi salvează energie.

Fiind văzută, în mod tradiţional, ca un blocaj pentru îmbunătăţire şi producţie, finisarea este considerată acum ca o etapă esenţială în procesul fabricaţiei şi ca un mod de a diferenţia produsele şi crea valori adăugate. Nu este normal ca finisarea să genereze atât de mult ca 40% din costurile de producţie şi ca controlul prost al calităţii, în această etapă, să distrugă tratat grozav de valori adăugate.


Cu actualizările din tehnologia digitală de producţie, imprimantele SME au dus la conştientizarea că investirea sumelor modeste în echipamente de finisare pot duce la îmbunătăţiri semnificative ale productivităţii şi la reducerea costurilor. Rezultatele de la un raport privind o tendinţa recentă de drupe globale arată că 48% din persoanele care au răspuns plănuiau să investească în echipamente de finisare, iar 40% dintre aceştia investesc în îmbunătăţirea eficienţei.

What exactly is ‘inline finishing’?

What exactly is ‘inline finishing’?

Inline finishing is the process of bringing services such as folding, saddle stitching, side stitching, case binding, punching and other post-processes in-line, so they are accomplished at the same time as the printing. A wide array of finishing equipment is now available to be connected directly to digital production printers to achieve this, 


Providing these services in-line not only saves on labour costs; it also prevents missing pages, imperfect collation, and other common mishaps. It makes printing extremely small lots possible – even a single copy – and extends the range of just-in-time services from fliers to catalogues, manuals and other high page-count projects.


Inline finishing in the print industry gives you benefits including:

  • Labour-intensive post-processing completed at same time as printing
  • One-pass production of high page-count materials
  • Flawless binding, free of missing pages and imperfect collation


Which inline finishing workflow do I need?

Which inline finishing workflow do I need?

Digital inline finishing features a variety of different workflows 

These are all about automation, making in-line and near-line equipment critical, but sometimes an offline approach will be more applicable.


So how should you be investing? In inline finishing, the press and inline finishing equipment are directly connected and closely integrated using front-end management controls. This is the solution for you if you produce a defined range of products in standard formats such as stitched booklets, reports, calendars and book blocks. The overall productivity of a digital press with in-line finishing capability is determined by the speed and efficiency of the finishing components, so it is essential that these don’t detract from the rated speed of the digital press.


An offline finishing workflow is more common when a printer has a range of digital and offset equipment, but this increases labour costs. Sometimes the higher speed of off-line finishing equipment will more than compensate for the increased operator invention. It all depends on the type and quantity of jobs you need to finish.


In contrast to in-line and off-line, near-line offers greater flexibility. There is no physical connection between equipment in this case, but the finishing line knows the requirements of each job, from OMR (optical mark recognition) technology or from a direct interface with the press’s print server, through JDF. This enables the finishing line to manage the printed output from a variety of presses and create an audit trail, which is critical to personalized products like mailshots or transactional documents.


Choosing the right finishing workflow will depend on understanding not only your workload, but also how you can apply different finishing solutions to improve efficiencies and add value through new products. However one major benefit that has been largely overlooked by the printer and has not been sold effectively to the customer is inline finishing.
