Automated workflow for platemaking

Newsway, in cooperation with ProImage

ABB works together with ProImage to provide you with Newsway, a unique production management system for the entire plate production process — from page input to physical plate position in the press. The integration of Newsway into the ABB world ensures consistent page planning, ripping, platemaking and presetting of the printing press.


  • Plate production based on the production data (plate position, printing start time)
  • Automatic updating up to immediately before the start of printing
  • Visualization of the dependencies between editions, i.e. the pages/plates that are used in more than one edition
  • Workflow procedures that are adapted to the customer’s organization
  • Integration of existing resources, such as RIPs or proofing systems
  • Optional integrated Harlequin RIP, soft proofing and hard proofing functions
  • Comprehensive data processing (stitch, merge, text burn, etc.)
  • Efficient plate production through bitmap comparisons of different content versions
  • Freedom to define different plate output and sorting strategies
