People always pursue higher efficiency and lower worker cost, here it comes with the newly released Founder PaSharp Automation.

Introduction of Founder PaSharp Automation System

Founder PaSharp Automation system is going to change the prepress processing in PaSharp from manual to automatic. The system is C/S structure, composed of automation server, automation client and PaSharp processors: Automation client creates new tasks (including Ticket, Hot Folder and Job), and monitors processing status; automation server receives and manages the tasks; PaSharp processor executes the tasks and returns the results.

Simple Workflow of Operation

  • Create an automation ticket in Automation client, the ticket can be Preflight, Step&Repeat with CAD Layout/Chart, and Auto Trapping etc.
  • Create a Hot Folder in Automation client for a batch of files, or create a job for only one file.
  • All files are displayed in the Job Manager list, and also can be moved or deleted.
  • After the file is processed, the result file will go into Output Folder.

Ticket Manager

  • Create ticket which includes job rules and parameters.
  • Four automation modules are supported.

Hot Folder Manager

Hot folder manager is used for creating activated folder. Automation server is always checking up the hot folder, if there is any file put into the folder, it will be moved and processed according to the rules and parameters of the ticket.

Job Manager

Besides process files with hot folder, you also can process file with “New Job”. The difference is that hot folder method processes batch files, and new job method can only process one file at one time.

Benefit of Automation

Automation system increases the efficiency of process greatly, you don’t need to open file one by one in Illustrator, just put the files into hot folder, and find the result file in the output folder.
