To ensure that makeready times are always short, the patented Intellistart 3 system automatically determines the makeready processes required for job production by constantly monitoring machine status and comparing with upcoming jobs. Once all the commissioning processes have been carried out, the execution order is given automatically. The Intelliguide system and Intelliline color control LED elements located on the printing and coating units inform operators of the equipment's operational status at any given time and indicate any manual intervention that is necessary.

To all these novelties, a series of assistance systems based on artificial intelligence, such as Wash Assistant and Color Assistant Pro. These systems allow for intuitive and easy-to-use end-to-end operation, ensuring stable processes that can be precisely controlled at all times and increasing throughput thanks to minimal setup times, less waste and lower energy consumption. Prinect color measurement systems also provide optimal and reproducible color stability with minimal waste.
