    PFF file to Heidelberg Prepress Center?

    Hi,

    We have here a new Heidelberg Speedmaster 52. Our CTP providor gave us a file (pff). It contains pre-inking information for the machine, but we dont know how to use it, since the SM doesnt recognize it.

    Sugestions?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You need Heidelberg Prinect Prepress Interface to be able to convert the PPF from Ctp/RIP to the Ink Profile of your SM52.

    Another thing is you need to know the Press Console, is it CP2000 or Press Center. You need the new version of Prepress Interface to work on Press Center.

    Very sorry, as far as I know, the console for press machine of Heidelberg called CP2000 and Press Center. And the older console called CPTronic .

    If you have Press Center then you need Heidelberg Prinect PrePress Interface v.4.x, it will convert the PPF file to TAR file, then it will readable by PressCenter.

    Hope it will help...

    I totally agree,and if you are using a thumb drive with the PressCenter remember to create a empty folder and name it as PressCenter and insert the TAR file , if this step is not done , the presscenter console could not read the TAR file.
