Esko will make you smile at FESPA Digital 2013

FESPA Digital 2013 attendees can discover how to create higher-impact products and streamline their sign and display production workflow by visiting the Esko stand. The exhibition will be staged at the ExCel London Exhibition Centre from June 25 to 29, where the company will showcase its broad range of software and hardware solutions. At the show the company will be demonstrating its flagship Kongsberg i-XP24 cutting table, as well as its i-cut Suite prepress and workflow software, and ArtiosCAD and Studio software for structural and 3D design. ‘We’ll be showing visitors how easily our solutions can be integrated into any sign and display production environment and deliver immediate results,’ said Armand Gougay, Esko Vice President EMEA. ‘By adding Esko solutions to their production line, customers will not only create a smoother, faster operation – the increase in quality will help establish them as a preferred supplier in their market.’ Esko will demonstrate its Kongsberg i-XP24 cutting table at FESPA Digital. The table is equipped with i-cut Vision pro, the benchmark for camera-based registration systems, a heavy-duty milling unit and multiple quick-change cutting tools, allowing users to easily handle a wide range of materials and applications. Esko will have three dedicated workstations at its stand, with specialists on-hand to demonstrate to delegates how the company’s software can address the specific challenges they’re facing. Esko’s latest version of i-cut Suite will also be on display. This integrated prepress and workflow offering streamlines the entire sign and display manufacturing process, from design to print to cut. It takes care of preflight and layout files before they go to print and then to digital finishing in one seamless flow. Esko unveils a new level of Automation at the show. It adds a range of new, intelligent automation functions. For example, the sign and display workflow templates make it fast and easy for users to get up-and-running. Meanwhile the gang run printing feature is a queuing mechanism that manages all different substrates and sizes. Based on nesting algorithms, different sheets are created and filled up, using criteria such as material and required quantities. Operators remain in control and can force output at any time. Esko´s workflow automation also integrates easily with a wide range of business systems. Also highlighted at the show will be Suite 12 and ArtiosCAD software, which help create a more efficient and creative production process and enables users to add value in terms of structural design. Meanwhile the rich 3D functionality offered by Esko’s Studio software allows users to create and edit realistic sign and display visualisations ‘in a retail context’, ensuring a faster approval, QA and production process. For the third year running, FESPA has chosen Esko as its exclusive Global Software and Finishing Partner. Esko will reveal what can be achieved with the right solutions in place at its Software Theatre. Esko will be hosting an Expert Lounge, where the company’s application experts will discuss the commercial opportunities that can be exploited using its Kongsberg tables. They’ll also be answering questions from visitors to help them overcome the specific obstacles their businesses are facing. Throughout the show Esko will highlight an array of samples produced using different materials and applications, and printed by the company’s many large-format print equipment partners.
