It will present the benefits and functionalities of Hybrid Patchplanner, a flexo plate mounting workflow software solution for the corrugated industry.

Flexo plates are very expensive and anyone operating in a prepress department will see the benefits of Patchplanner. When producing something like a corrugated box, it is not unusual for only a tiny area to need to be printed even though the box itself may be large. Until now, a great deal of manual work has generally been required in order to avoid using large flexo plates.
Patchplanner takes a PDF digital design file and optimizes the layout of the printed areas as individual elements, enabling a much smaller plate to be used than the actual size of the job. The software can then be used to control very accurately automatic cutting of the plate and repositioning of the parts on to a plastic carrier.
