Integrated Solutions from EskoArtwork at Graph Expo
MIAMISBURG, Ohio—Integrated solutions are increasingly important as a means of making packaging, sign and display, and print more efficient. At Graph Expo 2010, EskoArtwork demonstrated how its Suite 10 portfolio of packaging and print pre-production software can cut costs by integrating, not only with products within the suite, but also with software products from numerous partners. In addition, EskoArtwork demonstrated its i-cut Suite, a collection of pre-production solutions that streamline the workflow for the large-format digital printing and finishing throughout the entire production process—from prepress to the finished product. EskoArtwork Kongsberg finishing tables and complementary software were displayed at a number of partner booths.
“EskoArtwork has received a terrific response from our customers to both Suite 10 and i-cut Suite. They are both easy to use and provide complete production solutions for virtually any print organization,” explains Mark Quinlan, President, EskoArtwork North America. “Meanwhile, we are also fortunate that many of our partners are also demonstrating EskoArtwork solutions at Graph Expo. For example, visitors can stop at the Pitman or Fujifilm booths and see a fully functioning Kongsberg i-XL24 dieless cutting table, visit the HP booth to learn how EskoArtwork Digital Front End tools help drive the HP Indigo, or stop by the Xerox booth to see how the Kongsberg i-XE Auto finishing table completes a digital workflow.”
Suite 10: Complete prepress solution
EskoArtwork's Suite 10 is a major, step-change release of its software solutions for packaging prepress, 3D structural design and quality assurance, collaboration and automation, and color management. At Graph Expo, visitors could follow demonstrations of the new Automation Engine 10 and new version 10 releases of all editor applications: ArtPro 10, PackEdge 10, DeskPack 10, ArtiosCAD 10 and Studio 10. The workstation software is more highly integrated, adding capabilities to the automation of repetitive tasks, and taking more human interaction out of the prepress production process. This avoids mistakes and saves considerable time and money.
