The software enables easy management of short runs and just-in-time production, along with variable data printing tools for faster personalized job production. With customizable corrections, advanced color matching, and integration with ERP/MIS systems, Durst Workflow is designed to accelerate job preparation and streamlines operations.
Accurate Ink Cost Analysis
When print data is uploaded, a complete check and normalization of the data, as well as an exact calculation of ink consumption for the print file, is carried out. Users can easily configure the settings and instantly determine if using CMYK alone or additional process colors would be more cost-effective.
Recurring Tasks Automation
Durst Workflow Label automates repetitive tasks and settings to save time and minimize errors. Users can create fixup chains and production templates, assigning them to hot folders or integrating them into their production planning system.
Precise Color Reproduction
Ensuring consistent and accurate color reproduction is effortless with Durst Workflow Label. Colors can be captured from proofs, and precise color selection is enabled through grid charts and color books, which can be saved and applied to specific materials or customers for streamlined production.
High Speed Ripping
Recent enhancements have significantly improved rip speed, especially for variable data jobs. The inclusion of the Harlequin Host Renderer and a high-performance workstation with 12 cores further boost the software's performance.
Optimized Ink Usage
Durst Workflow's Ink Save module optimizes ink consumption by dynamically adjusting the ink usage across all colors in your printer. By compensating with black ink, it achieves an optimal reduction in total ink consumption while maintaining a great color accuracy. In addition, Durst Workflow eliminates unnecessary graphics around the label, limiting the bleed to what is needed.
