KM1 and Variable Data Files

Hello,
We purchased a KM1 inkjet press.
We are looking to run postcards with variable data on it.
We currently use XMF for our workflow.
What is the best way to merge my data onto files so that the KM1 can print and stack?
Thank you.

HI, it's me again.
The best way to manage variable data is to purchase a sftware that could do it for you (XMPIE for example, is the most famous one).After that you can generate your pdf and put it into XMF for preflight and imposition.
I don0t know if XMF has a VDP module.
However it all depends from what kind of job you have to do.
For exmple with datamerge function that you may have in InDesign or Affinity Publisher, you can do a lot of stuff.
Greetings.

Vista, talk to the KM sales rep that sold it to you. It sounds like a full analysis wasn't done to determine your needs or the owners of your company opted not to purchase it. I used to sell production gear for KM. Normally, I'd ask if you needed imposition or VDP software and include it with the machine purchase. KM has their Accurio line of software which includes Flux for imposition and queuing, or an InDesign plug-in for VDP. There are also plenty of 3rd party software options for imposition and VDP that will integrate with the KM1 as they are printer agnostic.
