Esko will show Scanpack visitors how they can deliver shorter turnaround times while maintaining high quality and increasing profitability with its Packaging Connected approach.
In Gothenburg, October 23-26, at its G06:17 booth, Esko will be detailing how integrated and automated solutions, such as color specification, 3D pack shots and design reviews, can link brand owners, designers, premedia and the pressroom into a highly productive and efficient workflow.
It will also demonstrate how its Kongsberg X22 cutting table enables post production versatility, flexibility and creativity.
Karsten Nygård, Business Manager North-East Europe of Esko, explains: “We are looking forward to meeting Scanpack visitors and educating them on how they can connect the packaging production process from design and prepress up to printing and delivery of the finished materials. This will enable them to enjoy faster throughput, higher quality, and ‘Right First Time’ production. Our software and hardware solutions create a more streamlined process to lift productivity and support greater profitability.”
Workflow that Wows
Taking center stage are Esko’s QuickStart solutions Automation Engine and WebCenter, plus ArtPro+ and the newly launched Print Control Wizard.
With Esko’s QuickStart solutions Automation Engine and WebCenter, workflows are quickly deployed for packaging and sign applications. With Automation Engine, brands and packaging suppliers can automate repetitive prepress tasks from one-up artwork to the print-ready data. Program, artwork and asset management tools for quick and easy project handling, and approvals are included in WebCenter. Both solutions connect with ERP/MIS systems.
ArtPro+ reshapes packaging prepress editing into an intuitive QA tool with fewer clicks. The next generation native PDF editor automates routine functions to speed up production. Visitors will also be able to see the powerful Packaging Preflight functionality within ArtPro+ and the new DeskPack Text Recognition plug-in in action.
Print Control Wizard further simplifies the platemaking department by taking the complexity out of flexo platemaking. The easy to use solution goes beyond excellent screening to output the right plate fit for purpose based on a range of print run parameters. The result is superior print quality thanks to the use of a screen and dot gain curves that take into consideration the press, substrates, inks, anilox, and other print run parameters.
Putting the spotlight on production flexibility is the Kongsberg X22 digital cutting table. The cost effective, durable, reliable and precise system is easy to use. It features a lightweight carbon composite traverse to consistently provide the fastest throughput.
