wNewsNet PLAN-Link


PLAN-Link is used for data exchange with external systems. Thus, the information about scheduled productions, press configrations and planned plates is available in wNewsNet. wNewsNet displays the information about planned productions in the CONTROL-Client. The operator is informed about planned pages and pages already received. Moreover, wNewsNet can label the plates with information about printing tower, cylinder and field, in order to inform the printing staff about the location of the plate on the press. The information can also be used to draw a barcode on the plate to support an automatic plate conveyor system.
