Esko and PriscoDigital Teaming Up for Dscoop7 Exhibition
i-cut Suite offers professional tools to streamline workflows—in 2010 it was the first workflow to offer sign & display shops a complete, integrated solution. Since then, i-cut Suite has seen rapid popularity throughout the world. i-cut Suite components include: i-cut Preflight to handle efficient preflighting and editing of incoming PDF files; i-cut Layout, a module for interactively building and editing sheet layouts; and i-cut Vision Pro, to ensure that die-less cutting contours match printed images perfectly. With i-cut Automate, all of these functions can be automated in a single workflow, with less operator intervention required and fewer potential manual errors. Users with more specific requirements can easily add supplementary modules.
The Kongsberg i-XP 24 is the world’s fastest digital finishing system, helping turn short-run POP / POS display work into profitable, value added jobs, allowing sign and display shops to offer their customers on-demand production with just-in-time delivery. With a maximum working area of 87×126˝ and a maximum speed of 66 ips (inches per second), the i-XP series can convert a wide range of board, sheet and roll materials.
PriscoDigital is both an HP Scitex ‘Graphic Specialist’ top tier dealer to commercial printers as well as an Esko reseller, enabling PriscoDigital, the digital division of the Prisco Group of Companies, to sell Esko’s Kongsberg finishing tables and software solutions to commercial printers in the U.S. and Canada. The company is looking forward to talking with commercial printers at Dscoop and helping them move from analog, screen, offset and similar print technologies to wide format digital inkjet.
“Prisco’s expertise is evident as the HP Graphics Specialist distributing HP Scitex wide format inkjet systems to commercial printers — while Esko brings value before and after print, offering the workflow and finishing tools to support wide format digital presses,” comments Bill Hartman, Vice President Business Development, Digital Finishing. “There are very few shows offering live demonstrations where people can see a complete, practical production workflow. Prisco and Esko have combined to build a complete design to print to cut demonstration at Dscoop that offers time savings and cost solutions to HP Scitex printer owners. And the best part is that printers can make money from this. This is a real, profitable solution.”
