PriscoDigital to Show Real-World Wide-Format Inkjet Workflows at GRAPH EXPO
NEWARK, NJ—August 20, 2012—PriscoDigital announced that it will be conducting continuous end-to-end workflow demonstrations on various rigid media, utilizing the new Kongsberg XN automatic cutting system from Esko. This will be the first time the XN system will be demonstrated at a major trade show in North America. In addition, a flexible media workflow ideally suited for commercial printers will also be running live at GRAPH EXPO 2012 in Booth #201.
According to Eric Gutwillig, vp of marketing, “We are striving to demonstrate that integrating wide format inkjet technologies within a traditional offset printing manufacturing environment can be easy and seamless. PriscoDigital offers turnkey workflow solutions that allow commercial and packaging printers to capture new business opportunities from within their existing customer base.
“Inkjet systems can cost-effectively produce diverse applications such as short-run packaging, product mock-ups, point-of-purchase displays or promotional items. Since we are the exclusive channel partner of HP Scitex for the large industrial systems within the commercial offset segment, we are able to offer our customers leading-edge wide format technologies,” added Gutwillig.
PriscoDigital is excited to demonstrate the wide range of products that commercial and packaging printers can produce utilizing state-of-the-art high speed production equipment and optimized software from HP Scitex, Caldera and EskoArtwork. For the demo, prepared files are processed through EskoArtwork i-cut suite software, ripped though the Caldera RIP, where color management also takes place and then printed utilizing the HP Scitex FB700.
Printed images comprised of intricate shapes will be cut from the media utilizing Esko’s Kongsberg XN automated cutting system. The XN processes the image files through i-cut Vision Pro software which calculates the cutting position information that drives the cutting heads.
For flexible media applications, PriscoDigital will demonstrate the HP Designjet L28500 latex inkjet system. This economical system proves that versatile eco-friendly inkjet printing is within easy reach of every commercial printer.
