Web Connect+ to Deliver Automated Workshop Demonstration at Graphics Canada

Print automation community Web Connect+ will raise the bar for trade show demonstrations with a turnkey, end-to-end automated print production experience at Graphics Canada, May  11-13.  

From designing a personalized product, to pre-flighting, digital printing and finishing, attendees will be able to see an entirely seamless workflow in action at the Web Connect+ Booth 5222. 

Web Connect+ consists of six partners, both software and hardware providers, who will showcase a genuine first for an industry trade show.  Attendees will be able to create and personalize a product using the Infigo web-to-print platform at the first stage of the experience. 

The job will then be processed by Significans Automation, a solutions integrator that helps printers customize their workflow. It will then be sent on to imposition and planning software, Phoenix (distributed by Enfocus), and lastly to Enfocus for pre-flight checks.  

Motionalysis, which connects estimating, work order management and real time data collection, will provide live tracking and shop floor analytics of printing and finishing equipment.

Ronik will showcase their innovative flatbed printer, producing high quality prints that will then be transported across the length of the booth for finishing.

Elitron, manufacturer of digital cutting systems, will begin the material cutting process with tight precision, so you can see the finished product take shape right before your eyes.  

As well as seeing the entire workflow in operation, attendees will be able to book individual, in-depth demonstrations with each provider. 

Infigo’s CEO and founder Douglas Gibson will also be speaking on the main stage, discussing not only the technology that enables successful web-to-print but also the strategies behind it. 

During his presentation, entitled “Get Creative. Get Integrated. Get Online.” Douglas will discuss the components, culture, technology and mindset that have seen clients reap significant success from web-to-print.  

Significans Automation’s Marc Raad will explore the topic of “Why is Automation a Trusted Investment?” Industry leaders agree that automation not only enhances productivity and efficiency but also reduces costs and mitigates risks, making it a reliable investment for businesses of all sizes.
