EFI and Esko Announce Collaboration in High-Growth Packaging Segment

During the drupa 2016 tradeshow, EFI and Esko announced that they have signed a letter of intent to bring a combined workflow solution to market that will enable companies to produce packaging with a single seamless and integrated workflow. This collaboration will connect EFI Fiery digital front ends (DFEs), Esko workflows, and EFI ERP/MIS solutions to provide a unified production eco-system for packaging companies. In addition, customers using the Esko workflow will be able to prepare jobs once for output and use EFI's optimization tools to route them to their Fiery driven digital production devices with a single seamless experience. EFI and Esko intend to develop a unified workflow for digital printing of packaging using EFI's Fiery DFE combined with Esko's workflow automation platform. Commercial printers that want to offer folding carton or label printing to their customers using their digital presses will enjoy the benefits of this powerful solution: a simple and efficient method to get access to the best workflow in the industry without having to make a significant new investment in specialized software. In addition, this combined offering will be integrated to EFI's ERP/MIS and Web-to-Print solutions to provide a seamless end-to-end workflow from design to delivery for commercial print customers. Beyond the DFE and workflow integration, EFI and Esko will also enhance their existing integration between Fiery DFEs and the full platform of Esko workflow tools as well as EFI’s ERP/MIS and Web-to-Print products. The first of the new offerings will be showcased at drupa in May 2016 with integration between Esko Automation Engine, EFI Packaging Productivity Suite and Fiery. This integration is planned for release at the end of 2016. The EFI Fiery DFE combined with the Esko automation platform and additional integration into EFI’s Productivity Suite is planned for release in 2017.

Esko Makes Kongsberg Tables Even More Productive at ISA 2016 with New i-cut Production Console Tools

Esko will show its wide range of innovative, and scalable, workflow and finishing solutions to empower sign and display companies to drive new business. This includes new, innovative software tools that will help sign shops get the most productivity out of their finishing systems. Esko will be showcasing two models of its Kongsberg family, the market's most robust offering of digital finishing systems. The Kongsberg C64 is a superwide (126" x 126") digital finisher that offers the possible performance. Precision and productivity over ten feet are guaranteed the carbon composite traverse beam, which is unique to Esko. The Kongsberg C also is the only super wide finisher with a 3kW continuous duty high performance milling unit. On the Kongsberg C64 table, Esko will also be showing short run scalability with a large stack capability and automation. It is capable of four feed cycles per minute in a continuous material flow. Material is loaded with a fork truck or pallet jack--either portrait or landscape. It also is available with an optional roll feeder. The second table, the Kongsberg XN, is easily the most versatile digital finishing device ever introduced. Whether producing vinyls, boards or wood the Kongsberg XN brings the best quality for any job or application. It comes with industry standard print to cut registration, a camera system for vision cutting among many other features. While the Kongsberg XN24 on the booth is 66" x 126", the XN product family is available in seven different sizes from 66" x 50" to 87" x 258". The icut Production Console (iPC) drives all Kongsberg table functionality, such as camera control, machine set up, tool recognition, calibration and tool adjustments. On display at ISA will be new features Esko recently announced the frontend operating system. With these features, precise production planning and prioritizing in the digital finishing operation becomes easier to manage. Esko has also integrated its Kongsberg tables with its workflow automation software, Automation Engine. Automation Engine's Device Manager gives better control over finishing production. Work in progress and the status and queues of all connected devices are clearly visualized on screen. The software determines optimal sheet nesting to increase production capacity. Operators use an intuitive drag and drop interface to prioritize table queues, insert rush jobs and even balance workloads between tables. The new Kongsberg Estimating software module delivers against these challenges. Packaging, signage and display designs are prepared, and production estimates are generated automatically, based on production metadata such as substrate type and thickness. Also on display will be Esko's icut Suite, a collection of prepress and preproduction software solutions providing the tasks sign and display companies need, such as preflighting, file editing, cutting paths and nesting. It helps companies eliminate errors, save time and reduce waste. Adding Esko's Automation Engine manages prepress workflow automation with dynamic workflows. Automation Engine serves as the heart of any size prepress production operation and can also offer automated color management for consistent color. Esko ArtiosCAD and Studio software for 3D design of displays offer dedicated tools to streamline structural design, graphic development, virtual prototyping, and manufacturing.
