Job Customization & Control Features
Any job can have multiple workflow paths.
Support for nested impositions using configurable clipping paths.
Output can be ordered by flat for more efficient production.
Partial imposition and partial output options aid efficiency.
Step-and-repeat function is available.
Output PDFs can be split into separate files.
FrontImpos also contains optional full-blown functions for generating signatures for the packaging (carton and corrugated) industry based on the same input as the die-cut equipment.
Having the packaging functions as an integrated part of the imposition software enables the user to use all standard imposition functions together with the particular requirements requested in the packaging business.
The FrontImpos packaging functions are able to read original die-cut files in formats like CFF2 (Common File Format 2), DDS (Digital Data Exchange System), and others and convert these automatically and/or manually assisted to full imposition signatures that can be used to impose the single or multiple original graphics provided in pdf format.
