automatic & intelligent.
Missing bleed is an ongoing issue in every prepress operation. If you don't want to continue doing it yourself and risk changing other file contents, you will have to request a new, corrected file from your customer. This costs time and reduces forward-looking scheduling and production planning.
Thanks to the powerful OneVision software, it is possible to detect whether the bleed is missing or necessary. A missing bleed is automatically and intelligently created – either by mirroring or by pixel expansion. Correct bleed in the PDF is no longer an issue for OneVision customers.
The fully automated bleed genereation for your decisive competitive advantage:
- Missing bleed is generated automatically
- Labor saving: no manual intervention in the file is necessary
- Print files do not have to be requested again
- Reliability in scheduling and production planning
- Production reliability: no disruptions to the production process
- Cutting tolerances in further processing are negligible
- Consistently high quality standards
The ”Preflight” module is used to detect whether the bleed is missing or necessary for printing. Incorrect files are further directed to the ”Generate Bleed” function. The software analyzes the print file along the PDF trim box or a freely designed trim line. Missing bleed is intelligently generated by mirroring or pixel expansion or extending vector elements. The software also detects when the print image does not go all the way to the trim line and generates a full, intelligent bleed for printing.
The ”Generate Bleed” module can be configured easily based on production requirements and thus precisely meets individual production specifications.
Compared to manual correction, automatic bleed generation can save more than 80 percent in time alone.
The following example shows, that it takes almost two minutes with our PDF editor Solvero to manually add bleed to four different files. Automatic processing of the file takes only 21 seconds.
Above all: if the file needs to be changed manually, be it in the PDF via InDesign, Illustrator or similar. Manual work is not included in the price calculation of the job. With every minute of manual work, the margin shrinks. In addition, automation allows prepress employees to pursue other tasks in parallel. Customer relationships are strengthened through smooth processes, consistent high quality and adherence to deadlines.
