Get connected with Esko at FESPA Madrid 2020

February 20, 2020

Esko will showcase its latest solutions to delegates from across the digital and screen printing sectors at this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo in Madrid. The global developer of integrated software and hardware solutions will use the largest international speciality print exhibition to highlight its new and award-winning innovations during the four-day event next month.

“This is a hugely exciting expo for us,” said Jan De Roeck, Director of Marketing, Industry Relations & Strategy. “With more than 18,000 print professionals visiting across the four days, FESPA 2020 is the ideal opportunity for us to connect with converters and underline how Esko can guide them on their digital transformation journey.

“On stand will be our recently launched software solutions, ArtiosCAD Preflight and Share & Approve, which boost productivity and reduce waste across the print process. Moreover, we will demonstrate how these individual solutions combine to unlock new heights of efficiency as part of a connected digital ecosystem.”

With unrivalled performance in CAD design for packaging and displays, ArtiosCAD Preflight delivers an efficiency boost to the market leading structural design software by saving users up to 15 minutes per design, eliminating the need for manual checks and standardizing checks across a user group. “Delivering quality control at the touch of a button, ArtiosCAD Preflight automatically analyzes structural design files and flags quality issues to avoid downstream errors and save time for converters,” said Jan. “We will be demonstrating how the software alerts designers to potential design issues before releasing the file to estimating or production to ensure increased operational uptime and efficiency.”

The brand new and unique approval software Share & Approve, which runs as a service on Esko Cloud, will also be showcased at FESPA. “With Share & Approve, anyone in the workflow can upload, share, annotate and approve jobs in 2D and hyper-realistic 3D,” said Jan. “The ability to record, store and send feedback in a single, centralized online tool brings new clarity to the process, reducing the amount of approval iterations and shortening the time required to get a job approved. This enables brands and their supply chains to operate more efficiently and drive down time-to-market.”

Esko will also spotlight its workflow server, Automation Engine, which automates print production tasks and integrates business systems, accelerating the production process by reducing the error rate and need for operator intervention. “Our latest solution, Automation Engine Cloud Connector, further extends the capabilities of the software to connect to the Esko Cloud,” said Jan. “This opens up a world of possibilities, such as moving jobs - not just design files, but entire production folders - safely and securely from one production facility to another.”

Jan added the Esko ecosystem display will be completed by the new, fully upgradeable Kongsberg X Edge digital finishing table. Delivering speeds of 30 m/min with acceleration of 0.3G and able to handle the full spectrum of display, signage and packaging materials - from kiss cutting vinyl to heavy duty milling and every job in between - the new X Edge offers the perfect combination of productivity, flexibility and best in class reliability.

The Kongsberg X Edge means no longer being forced to compromise and choose between speed, precision or production power,” he added. “We are looking forward to demonstrating how it combines with Esko solutions to drive performance and efficiency to visitors at FESPA 2020.”

Esko will showcase its integrated software and hardware range at Booth A10, Hall 7.
