PrintFactory partners with Durst
Workflow software provider PrintFactory is partnering with digital production technology manufacturer Durst, which will now be providing the PrintFactory API to customers in mixed print environments.
PrintFactory’s rip-based software connects multi-manufacturer environments, with the suite of workflow software supporting more than 2000 printers and cutters. It delivers an editor, calibrator, and premium layout tool alongside the API-integrated rip.
Erik Strik, CEO of Aurelon (the team behind PrintFactory), said: “This is a great partnership for us as it confirms our focus on colour quality is the right direction. With PrintFactory’s VISU colour engine as a part of the workflow, Durst operators can be confident of not only reducing the time spent achieving colour consistency, but also in reducing ink and media costs.”
Durst Professional Services business development manager Michael Deflorian said: “We’ve been looking for workflow-based software that has a robust, scalable API and allows Durst Workflow users to drive printers of other manufacturers with the same software.
“It’s not just about having a smooth workflow; it’s about finding affordable software and hardware that can support a growing business. Our customers choose Durst for the long term. Software that we recommend has to deliver on a promise of quality and reliability, and PrintFactory meets that criteria.”
A statement from the companies said the new partnership would deliver a tight integration between the workflow products.
“This means more customers can choose Durst printers to work alongside their existing devices – there’s no need to manage print jobs via different systems,” the statement said.
“The Durst software ECO system digitises the e-commerce, prepress, and print process. All products offer a browser-based interface for maximum flexibility and an interface to share data with other software solutions.”
PrintFactory software is generally delivered via a network of distributors worldwide. It delivers on increased productivity, guarantees lower ink costs with no detriment to print quality, improves margins thanks to reduced waste media, and ensures consistent colour, time after time, according to the company.
