Ultimate TechnoGraphics will be present at Hunkler Inndonationdays, in Hall 1, from 27 February to 2 March.

Ultimate TechnoGraphics, a known name in imposition and finishing automation software, has announced BetterPDF, a new module for Ultimate Impostrip Scalable software solution, which will be previewed for the first time at Hunkeler Innovation Days 2023 in Lucerne, Switzerland, and released shortly afterward.

Ultimate BetterPDF was developed as a solution to the common customer challenge of problematic, deficient PDF files that can become a bottleneck to the imposition and ripping process, reduce production output speed, or sometimes not output or print at all. These files are typically very large and may have structural issues, not visible to the eye, that can choke any press.

With Ultimate BetterPDF, PDF files are re-engineered to the specific requirements of the target output device via a series of user-defined options. Multiple different configurations can be created as a ‘set it and forget it’ approach for a fully automated and scalable workflow.

Internal testing with real-world customer problem files has shown some impressive increases in speed”, says Andrew Bailes-Collins, head of Product Management at Ultimate TechnoGraphics, “not only during the imposition phase but also in the speed of the subsequent Rip/DFE processing, making Ultimate BetterPDF an essential tool for print service providers with very large problematic files.”

Print Service Providers are faced with the daily challenge of meeting fast turnaround times that are sometimes contractual to meet mailing deadlines. They are usually not the creators of the file and need a late-stage PDF re-engineering tool to help them produce efficiently and maximize the use of their press to get more jobs out the door.

Ultimate BetterPDF is built-in Ultimate Impostrip Scalable as optional processing modules available on Windows 64 Bit, and macOS Arm and Intel processors.

Most customer files we receive are simply too large for standard PDF fixing such as pre-flighting, says Julie Watson, CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. “Our customers needed a solution further down the workflow that could efficiently address large files and re-engineer them specifically to the requirements of Impostrip Scalable and ultimately the press they are being delivered to. This is exactly what we are delivering with Ultimate BetterPDF.”

Visitors to Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 can learn more about Ultimate BetterPDF and Ultimate Impostrip and how they could benefit their production workflow by visiting the Ultimate TechnoGraphics booth in Hall1.

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.
