EFI updates Fiery DFE platform

EFI has released its latest Fiery server, the Fiery FS300, which comes with the new Command Workstation 6. It forms the basis of a number of digital front end servers from various vendors, for both toner and inkjet printers, including sheetfed and continuous feed.

EFI’s Fiery FS300 Pro comes with Command Workstation 6.

John Henze, vice president of marketing at EFI, noted: “Higher Fiery processing speed enables 10x the throughput than before on Fiery XB print servers, driving print engines all the way to 2,400 ppm and beyond.”

The Fiery ImageViewer has been improved, particularly the Object Inspector and Total Area Coverage features that help identify imaging problems related to particular object types as well as trouble shooting issues with colours. It’s also easier to edit spot colours.

The FS300 comes with Command Workstation 6, which improves the overall job management, with features such as previewing and searching jobs, as well as faster reprints. For example, Himanshu Pandey, director of Avantika Printers in Delhi, India, noted: “The transition to Command WorkStation 6 increased the productivity of Avantika’s shop floor by 15%.” It can manage a variety of printers through a Fiery Driven connector, including cutsheet and high-speed inkjet presses, with wide- and superwide-format printers due to be added from 2018. There’s a new Home view that provides at-a-glance status of all connected Fiery servers and a snapshot of key print production statistics. There are also new versions of Fiery Impose, Compose and JobMaster, which make it easier to impose layouts and create gangup layout templates to automate job imposition, cutting the time to prepare jobs.
