Esko, teaming up with Danaher companies AVT and X-Rite and Pantone - along with many industry partners - is offering ‘Packaging Connected’, a label production platform with a wide range of seamlessly integrated applications from design to press.
The complete system preserves the digital flow of data, offering faster throughput, higher quality, ‘and Right First Time’ production. Automated production is becoming a necessity for fast turnarounds. Esko Automation Engine QuickStart for Labels and WebCenter QuickStart for Labels make it simple. These pre-configured, easy-to-use workflow solutions help label converters, in just five days, improve productivity. Automation Engine will also be shown as a browser-based application, for overseeing production from remote locations.
Esko is also offering a narrow to mid-web version of its award-winning automated flexo prepress and platemaking solution. With the Esko XPS Crystal 4835 UV exposure unit and the Esko CDI Crystal 4835 imaging unit, platemaking is a simple, coordinated, linear process from imaging to exposure. The new Print Control Wizard software takes the complexity out of flexo platemaking, delivering superior print quality. Automated flexo platemaking has also been integrated into Automation Engine, allowing a fully automated workflow, from RIPped plate files to the exposed plate on the Esko CDI.
