Heidelberg Prinect Trap Editor

With Prinect Trap Editor, PDF files can be located quickly and with high quality of fill - whether for individual sites or for the entire document.

The ultimate solution trapping
Prinect Trap Editor is a powerful PDF trapping tool from Heidelberg. Emerging from Supertrap, the world's first Adobe Acrobat plug-in for the trapping of native PDF files and winner of the GATF InterTech Technology Award, the Prinect Trap Editor is the outstanding trapping tool for all areas of the print media industry. Comfortably and efficiently trapping is done interactively, and object-oriented.

Why fill?
Despite the sophistication of modern printing machines often have trouble maintaining the exact fit (image registration) between the different extracts, which can lead to the printed page at the points in errors (speed cameras), where colors collide. The solution to this problem is the technical name "trapping" or "trapping". As a rule, each brighter objects can be enlarged slightly to allow the colors, even in dim light in the image registration and thus the pressure on print "Through-bolts" of the color of the paper is prevented.

Trapping of layout applications
There are now several application programs that are already creating a layout or illustration adjacent colors according to certain rules (usually automatic) overfill. Prominent examples include Quark Xpress or Adobe InDesign. In the case of QuarkXPress, but we must say goodbye to the overcrowding at that moment, when writing a composite (composite) postscript file, to then make a PDF of it. Unfortunately, the corresponding information is missing for the crowded objects. In other programs, overcrowding options missing.

Dedicated trapping programs
To ensure all documents from various sources consistently good print quality, it has been around for some time, various trapping programs on the market. These solutions are usually based on PostScript. So far, existing solutions were indeed able to read PDF files, but these were (mostly) internally converted to a bitmap format. The advantages of the PDF file format so were the latest to the overcrowding there.

Heidelberg Prinect Trap Editor
As the successor of Supertrap offers Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG to a solution based on Adobe Acrobat called Prinect Trap Editor, which is capable of professional trapping for native PDF files to calculate and store the result in PDF format. This is one of the last gaps in the PDF workflow is closed. Through a cooperation with the firm of Heidelberg, we are now able to offer you this product as a standalone tool outside of the Prinergy system solving workflow.

Product Description

It is characterized by its speed and the interactive control and editing. Since Prinect Trap Editor crowded PDF file already includes the trapping information, they can be processed together with other PDF-compatible final output and proofing system. RIP-specific extensions, such as for example Adobe in-RIP trapping are therefore no longer necessary. In addition, the RIP times are not influenced negatively, because the output device must be held no complicated trapping calculations.

Each trap can be edited individually interactive, or the operator can select all the traps and trapping within an area (zones) by color or by type and collaborate on (this is only for special applications or very delicate objects needed. Reaches a rule, the automatic filling completely, and is better than what you are used to layout programs!)
