High Security Prepress

HighSecurityPress 2

Software solutions, offset and digital intaglio platemaking, and prepress quality control for high security prepress systems.

Software Solution

Design, Proof – Jura’s non-traditional concept & functional design software provides the right solution for the special demands to produce preliminary designs for high security documents, to achieve the final security realization of complex structures at the maximum level and to accelerate and simplify the process. Additionally, the software allows to quickly and easily check if the functional layout meets the certain requirements of the incorporated machine readable and other features, at any stage of the design workflow.
The offset design software includes the flagship graphic design application to create up-to-date graphic artwork of all kinds of security documents at top level, applying high-resolution screening, high-precision vector graphics, special colorization, copy-protection and more.
For intaglio design Jura provides “The 21st Century Digital Toolset” for hand engravers and graphic artists to create resolution-independent vector art combined with the advantages of the latest intaglio plate making technology.
The quality control software is optimized for the designers to inspect the complete high security graphic design artwork – in respect to all details and printability – on the computer screen before printing.

Offset Platemaking

Front End, Wet CTP, Dry CTP – Jura’s imposition software generates high resolution plate-ready TIFF files for CTP machines containing the complete arrangement of imposed design artworks.
Jura’s prepress quality control system for the QC division includes a software for inspecting digital security design artwork materials – in respect to all details, step-and-repeating and printability – before the printing production.
Jura offers the most modern high resolution CTP output devices – over 10 thousand dpi – producing wet, waterless and dry offset plates for high security prepress systems. These machines have been developed in cooperation with Kodak and EskoArtwork.

Digital Intaglio Platemaking

Front End, DLE®, ICLES™ – Jura’s state-of-the-art direct laser engraving technology (developed with OeBS) became the standard in the production of intaglio printing plates since 2005. The full 3D control on attributes of design elements allows to develop novel security features and unique effects which cannot be reproduced with other technology.
According to the highest demands of modern security printing on quality in connection with individual security features the newest intaglio cylinder laser engraving technology transfers very fine elements and novel security features ‒ which cannot be transferred by manual stylus gravure – onto the cylinder.

Prepress Quality Control

QC, Print-ready plates – Jura’s 3D prepress quality control system for the QC division includes a software for inspecting digital security design artwork materials – in respect to all details, step-and-repeating and printability – and an ultra-high accuracy measuring system for 3D checking of intaglio and dry offset plates at final stage before the printing production.
The system also features 3D scanning for digitizing and reproducing existing intaglio plates, enhanced 2D scanning to digitize printed graphic security documents for further processing in high security graphic design software, and allows to compare printing plates and their printouts.
