Flux Preflight Pro for Konica Minolta’s AccurioPro Flux

pdfToolbox preflighting integrated in dots’ Flux


Konica Minolta business solutions’ European subsidiary, dots Software, has released Flux Preflight Pro, an option that allows users to apply preflight profiles from pdfToolbox from Callas. Flux Preflight Pro enables the use of the Callas pdfToolbox to check and optimize files for printing automatically. It assigns a suitable profile appropriate for the particular type of print output during the configuration process, which is then used to validate and optimize the files for output. Prepress operators also have the option to create their own profiles in pdfToolbox for use in Flux. Users are informed about the validation results and changes through comprehensive reporting.

“Automatically applying preflight profiles from pdfToolbox optimizes print data when sending it to in-house or external print shops, thus allowing the printers to work directly with the data,” says Michael Fluh, head of product development at dots Software. “This saves our time and their effort in their day-to-day work. There is no need for maintenance and additional installation since the pdfToolbox technology is directly integrated into AccurioPro Flux.”


AccurioPro Flux is a modular print workflow solution developed by dots Software, exclusively for Konica Minolta. Depending on the customer’s need to automate prepress processes, collaborating on printing work or deploying an online print shop, dots Software offers three versions of the product. AccurioPro Flux Essential, the base product, is a toolbox for efficient prepress work with the focus on automating common processes and controlling all production devices centrally. AccurioPro Flux Premium includes a central server enabling teams of print operators to collaborate on projects and features a range of evaluation and control functions.

AccurioPro Ultimate is a comprehensive product that includes an online shop or eCommerce storefront for business customers offering easy to use print ordering online. Flux Preflight Pro with integrated pdfToolbox technology is available for premium and ultimate versions of AccurioPro Flux.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
