Krause Imposition Manager software — available for newspaper and various other formats — is now in a more user-friendly Version 6.1 that also incorporates more comprehensive integration in automated production processes and JDF interface, according to Krause-Biagosch GmbH, Bielefeld, Germany.
The long-term partnership with callas software GmbH resulted in full integration of callas’ latest PDF engine into KIM 6.1, providing more-accurate previews, making the full version of Acrobat obsolete in KIM 6.1, according to Krause.
In color handling, KIM recognizes all process and spot colors inside the PDF document and automates the corresponding selection and allocates the print marks. The color database enables the mapping of identical colors with different color naming in the document. KIM also can work with rule-based marks, which are assigned automatically. Adjustable color-control work with color-control devices, and correct measuring of color zones and single editing of marks can achieve a customized print sheet layout.
Shingling compensation can now be performed by offsetting pages or page scaling. Diagonal correction also is possible. Other changes include improvements to facilitate free imposition and JDF-interfacing for the import of job tickets from MIS systems.
