Produce irregular shapes cost-effectively and efficiently
The Shape Nesting module in MultiPress allows you to automatically and optimally compose print sheets with irregularly shaped print products. In the production of sign and large format print orders, and packaging or labels, this function is almost indispensable.
In order to achieve maximum savings, it is best to combine different print orders such as labels or boxes from different orders into one printing form. This is especially attractive when producing the growing number of orders in smaller print runs and with fast delivery times. This way, you need fewer printing sheets and the production time is shortened.
Data on combination forms and production times are almost as valuable as the production itself. This knowledge can save a lot of time during consultations between sales and prepress. Also during the creation of the right layout schedules or the generation of print-ready files. In this way, you can efficiently reduce production costs and sell at a more competitive price.
All information of the different partial orders in the combination field remains available at all times, such as specific finishing and delivery data. In addition, all costs of the combination order are re-allocated pro rata to all partial orders for correct post-calculation.
This way of working places new demands on the order flow. Different orders become part of a combination order, which is planned and produced as a whole. Thanks to the well-organised folder structure in MultiPress, combination orders can be compiled fully automatically. Links to external solutions are also possible.
- More orders in less time: automated combination of irregular forms (sometimes from multiple jobs) on a printing sheet greatly simplifies the entire order flow, with fewer job changes and efficient production capacity utilisation
- Less material loss, lower costs: the production of combined orders requires fewer printing plates and reduces the amount of paper or substrate lost during order changes. All partial orders benefit proportionally from these advantages.
- Competitive prices, better margins: the savings in time and costs allow for competitive offers or wider margins
