EQUIOS Universal Workflow
Transitioning to Sustainable Print Management
EQUIOS brings new value to the world of printing, streamlining order placement and receipt, supporting a new style of Web-based sales, and cutting CO2 generation during printing and binding.
This solution platform offers a new level of automation and efficiency that is quickly making smart print manufacturing a reality. It enables the type of printing needed to create a sustainable society for the future.
Evolve to solution platform
EQUIOS builds on the innovative prepress technologies established in Trueflow, combining a universal workflow concept with the latest technical advances. As a solution platform, EQUIOS delivers a major step forward in automation and ease of use in all stages, from overall process design and imposition to progress and quality management.
EQUIOS ART & UX
EQUIOS functions as an overall solution platform for SCREEN products, enabling the control of a wide range of devices. EQUIOS ART is a suite of technologies that help to ensure optimal quality standards across different SCREEN graphic arts products. These technologies include SCREEN’s proprietary RIP, image processing and color management systems, which combine to produce images of consistently high quality on diverse printed materials. EQUIOS UX likewise provides a broad range of functionality across the entire production process from Web2Print input to printing and finally postpress. This includes support for user-friendly operations tailored to individual applications, automation of various repeated tasks and maintenance of links with a wider production system based on rapidly emerging IoT (Internet of Things) technology. Working synergistically, these technologies help to create a highly stable printing environment that delivers outstanding quality and productivity, with minimal operator skill requirements.
Fully automated prepress processing
RIP workflow development has focused on creating new ways to stream-line and accelerate processing. However, with the printing industry re-quiring ever wider options for differentiation and value creation, EQUIOS simply eliminates unnecessary operations. This approach improves overall workflow effciency and establishes the shift to value creation as a new goal for the industry. Nonstop processing from order receipt to job submission is now a reality with SCREEN’s Web to Delivery Automation concept. The most important factors in this approach are the conversion of the process plans for individual jobs to templates (action plans) and ability to automatically select appropriate templates based on the data input (linkage with up-stream devices).
Latest RIP core improves stability of output results
EQUIOS Version 8 incorporates Adobe’s latest RIP core, Adobe® PDF Print Engine, and latest Adobe® PDF Library. It also includes the latest version of PitStop for enhanced preflight functionality. In addition to ensuring compatibility with Adobe’s latest products, EQUIOS provides more stable output quality at even faster speeds. PDFs with transparency effects are now processed directly and the reproduction of line widths and colors composed of overprints both show major improvements. EQUIOS Version 8 significantly improves the productivity of the latest PDF-centered workflows, ensuring materials are output at high speed looking exactly as expected.
Simple Job Controller streamlines processing
An iPad can be used to register and output printing instructions for jobs. These jobs can be registered as soon as their orders are received, which significantly improves efficiency. Anyone can create output instructions by designing templates for imposition and output in advance.
