Esko starts off a busy 2013, exhibiting concurrently, from February 21-23, at two events: Graphics of the Americas and Dscoop8.
“Because of Esko’s wide range of hardware and software, we can assist digital and package printers, as well as commercial printers who want to explore opportunities in new business areas,” comments Mark Quinlan, President, Esko Americas. “At Dscoop8, we look forward to meeting with managers who concentrate on digital print. Meanwhile at Graphics of the Americas, we anticipate productive meetings with people – from the US and Latin America – who focus on a wide range of print challenges.”
Esko shows off its new Suite 12 packaging, sign & display and commercial print applications, at Graphics of the Americas 2012
During Graphics of the Americas in Orlando, at booth 1135, Esko will demonstrate a wide array of software solutions addressing artwork, management, design and prepress, color management, workflow automation and process integration – for commercial print, digital and packaging. Esko Suite 12 adds value for the user by introducing new productivity and efficiency benefits. This is done by closely integrating all flagship tools and engines, by adding rich 3D functionality for a holistic experience, and by enabling mobile collaboration and web-based packaging management.
Featuring WebCenter 12, Automation Engine 12, Color Engine 12, Studio 12 and the version 12 editions of flagship editors ArtiosCAD, PackEdge, ArtPro and DeskPack, Suite 12 raises the bar for process integration from design to press, involving all players in the supply chain. It provides a complete answer to the challenges of a modern label preproduction workflow.
The Digital Finishing highlight of Esko’s booth at Graphics of the Americas will be the new Kongsberg XN: a highly versatile and productive digital finishing system that can be configured easily for the widest range of applications from kiss-cutting to packaging mockups, heavy-duty milling and simple to complex flexo plate cutting with ID marking. This new system comes equipped with the impressive milling spindle MultiCUT-HP, potentially tripling boosting overall milling productivity.
Visitors can also learn about PantoneLIVE support within Esko’s workflows. PantoneLIVE delivers an end-to-end color management and color communication solution that, for the first time, addresses the needs and requirements of every single discipline within the print supply chain. The brand manager will see an accurate representation of on-press color early in the design process, while converters can be assured of first-time-right color proofing and easy-to-match color on press.
At booth 749, Esko reseller The Intermarket Group, will provide its support for Esko products. The Intermarket Group's headquarters is located in Miami, Florida with warehousing facilities that offer efficient and fast delivery service to its customers in Latin America and the Caribbean. All products represented are fully supported by Intermarket's own technical and sales staff.
