From traditional screen printing to individual digital printing of wallpaper – many print service providers, including a large European wallpaper manufacturer, are currently making this change. The print service provider, which wishes to remain anonymous so as not to jeopardize its market advantage, also digitized its entire production workflow in the process, thereby achieving faster and smoother processes.
=> Higher margins through automated wallpaper production
End-to-end, automated digital workflow replaces previous analog workflow with paper order pockets
Demand-driven production eliminates the need for expensive storage space and thus saves costs in the long term
Lead times per order reduced from an average of three days to 2.5 hours
Easier individualization of products through flexible, automatic processes regarding motif, wallpaper width, wallpaper length, etc.
A label is automatically generated for each order and each wallpaper web, which contains order-specific information such as article and production number, necessary wallpaper symbols, barcodes, thumbnails of the motif.
Patterns / panels are arranged as a web based on software so that they can be produced and cut fully automatically.
Nesting of the individual webs already takes place before the RIP. This eliminates manual processing time and significantly reduces the load on the RIP. This significantly increases throughput.
Dynamic path calculation from freely configurable motif sizes.
