Discover our prepress solution
PrimeCenter is a prepress software developed by Caldera in order to help print service providers optimize their job preparation for digital printing and cutting. Automating repetitive prepress tasks brings significant benefits— save time on prepress, increase the productivity of your operators, and reduce media usage to increase your margin.
At Caldera, we believe that saving valuable production time starts at the prepress stage, during which all errors can be prevented to ensure a streamlined workflow. We designed PrimeCenter as a versatile software that can benefit print operations of all sizes. It integrates seamlessly with your RIP software to save valuable time in file preparation, which allows you to focus on printing and cutting rather than prepress. Furthermore, PrimeCenter embeds advanced automation capabilities to streamline daily repetitive tasks.
Where does PrimeCenter fit in my production?
PrimeCenter is a prepress tool sitting upstream of your RIP station.
Your orders (or jobs) are first submitted to PrimeCenter, either manually, from a web shop or an ERP. At this stage, you can trust PrimeCenter to handle all your prepress tasks: nesting, preflighting, management of print bleed, margins, cut marks, annotations, barcodes & QR codes, etc.
After generating perfectly optimized layouts, PrimeCenter sends both PDF files (the print file and the cut file) to production. At this stage, CalderaRIP software or any RIP of your choice can be integrated to RIP the files, making them ready for printing. Once your files are printed, they’re already ready for cutting, since PrimeCenter generates ready-to-cut PDF files.
