What makes aepos. solutions special is that there are two operational options to be selected from. The focus lies on the order-based process.

order-based process with specific process chains


The order-based approach offers the advantage of complete control. All of the information about a given job is available at all times. This makes processes transparent.

Orders can be generated manually or automatically. As for the automatic generation Jobtickets or REST-API can be applied.

Thanks to the order-based approach it is possible to make automation processes more individual. This is facilitated by the information about the job.

For example:


  • Paper classes (important for controlling colour management)
  • Specified colour scheme (CMYK/SPOT etc.)
  • Specified page sizes
  • Number of pages

This information can be used in order to make processes dynamic.

The job controls the processes.

data-based process (classic via Hotfolder)


The Hotfolder-based process chains are used to handle very individualised work preparations for PDFs (classical tasks for tools).

For example:


  • Generating a multi-page-PDF from single-page-PDFs
  • Splitt multi-page-PDFs
  • Re-arranging trim boxes
  • Splitt double-sided PDFs, etc.

aepos.Digital = aepos.Basic + Imposition

Along with the process chains from aepos.Basic >>, aepos.Digital also includes the option of processing the prepared products (partial products) as print product.


By means of an internal imposition engine (template-based) print forms can be generated as PDF files.

Multiple products from different jobs can be combined in one or more print products.


If a product is linked with a print product, updates are completed automatically (correction-pages are uploaded). Of course this applies to all linked print products.

Additionally there is the option of using JDFs i.a. KIM as templates.

Control code / Disk Label

Based on metadata it is possible to apply control codes to the imposed form (disk labels etc. as QR code or barcode).

aepos. solutions are delivered as Hyper-V Images. The images contain the entire ready-to-run solution with the necessary operating system.

For the images to be useable the client must provide hardware capable of running it. The following system requirements must be met:

1 x Hyper-V based Host with 8 Cores


2 X 1GBit Netzwerk Card

2 x 256 GB System Disk (SSD) mirrored

1 TB Data Disc HDD


Digital & offset printing



Production of loose-leaf collections, paperbacks, business cards in the digital area
Classical offset production in 50x70 format
Large-format printing
Connection to various self-developed B2Bshop systems
Problematic data (many things from the field of universities)



Based on the page count of the content, a spine will be automatically calculated for the product. The gram weight of the paper used will be taken into account. The spine can be in various colours and also contains the title of the product. All of that is done automatically via job control (metadata).

Based on the size of the input pages and the selected output device (format of the output device), a sheet-layout is generated.
