Cross-media solutions: digitally generated catalogue templates

The task:

Automated production of article catalogues for the LuK, INA, FAG and Ruville brands

The solution:

Cross-media database system for the generation of print templates for catalogues. Data structures in any type of form (e.g. product tables, product parts lists, OE references) are converted into XML using Java and transformed into PDF format by means of a rendering process based on individual templates. The basis is a system that we developed for the print firm of Schluetersche Druck.

Technologies:

Java, XML, XSL-FO and others

The result:

On behalf of the Schaeffler Group, we produce catalogues for trade fairs and events from the slim 30-page catalogue to the 600-page tome in collaboration with Schluetersche Druck.
