      Production Automation Solution

      What is ganging?

      PrimeCenter has a feature that can group together incoming files based on a specific data. That is called ”ganging.” For example, if you have three multi-pages PDF files from two different customers, PrimeCenter will use Metadata, such as a customer's ID, to queue the files in separated nests. This feature eases the finishing and delivery process.


      Traditionally, what is called ‘data’ in the large format digital printing industry is what is printed. Metadata is all the different information that comes with the printed file such as for example the order number, the professional channel, the order date, the delivery date, the printer, etc. It helps you organize, filter and enrich your files via QRcodes.

      Prime Nesting

      True Shape nesting is a “NP-complete” problem, meaning that it is not possible to find the best solution without a prohibitive time consuming inspection of all the possibilities. The exploding combinatory of solutions leads to mix different strategies (classically called heuristics) to avoid local optimums and maximize efficiency. Prime Nesting combines several heuristics to find the better match given a maximal allowed nesting time.

      PrimeCenter Basic

      Parameters for preflight, nesting and other functions are applied manually.

      PrimeCenter Pro

      Layouts from incoming files are automatically generated, though not exported to the controller or the RIP. The application of parameters for preflight and nesting can be semi-automated via the creation of scripted actions.

      PrimeCenter Max

      Includes the features of PrimeCenter Pro, but the automatically generated layouts are also automatically exported to the controller or the RIP.
