i-cut to feature new i-cut Vision Pro 7.1 and consumable products

Monday, April 18, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Lake Geneva, WI – i-cut, Inc., an EskoArtwork business unit, will be introducing i-cut Vision version 7.1 during the ISA International Sign Expo 2011, from April 28-30 in Las Vegas, NV. At the i-cut, inc. booth (#2415), the company will also feature its most popular consumable products from the icuttools.com website. To promote the new software and online store, a number of special product promotions are available from the show floor.

New i-cut Vision 7.1 adds productivity, makes it easier to cut difficult materials

i-cut Vision 7.1 software will be launched at the i-cut, inc. booth during ISA, running live on a Trotec Speedy 300 laser system.

Vision control is necessary for digital finishing systems, because all printed materials contain size, rotation and scaling distortions that will produce inaccurate digital die cutting, if not corrected. i-cut Vision's patented means of distortion compensation enables digital cutting systems to produce error free results. Print runs from just one sheet to thousands are contour-cut reliably, precisely and economically. i-cut Vision Pro is a fully integrated hardware and software solution that turns a digital cutting table into a true, short-run production system, utilizing a camera system that individually adjusts cut files to perfectly match printed graphics. With industry leading vision registration, powerful dynamic routing, an intuitive user interface and true production workflow, i-cut Vision Pro is the world standard in finishing. New to i-cut Vision Pro 7.1 is Adaptive Registration (patent pending), a feature that intelligently reduces the number of registration marks read throughout the production, increasing productivity without sacrificing accuracy.  Using Vision Pro 7.1, print material specifications are taken from the work stream – including cutting keys that supply operators with optimized tool settings and blade/bit recommendations – and are processed with preset cutting parameters. This makes the finishing set-up extremely easy and simplifies the tasks necessary for starting each unique job. Subsequently, set-up times are minimal – and in many cases, virtually eliminated.

During ISA, the i-cut Vision Pro 7.1 system will be demonstrated on a Trotec Speedy 300 CO2 flatbed premium-class laser engraver. The system can be used as a laser engraver or laser cutting machine. It was created with an exceptional, innovative design, with high quality components. The Speedy 300 flatbed laser engraver provides precision and the highest productivity in laser engraving and laser cutting, with durability expected to last over many years.

i-cut Vision 7.1 comes with a number of new features. They include:

- "Adaptive Registration", intelligently reducing the number of registration marks needed to adjust the orientation of a sheet on a table, improving productivity.
- The ability to automatically eliminate overcuts in sensitive materials such as foam, Reboard and PSA film, by cutting away from inside corners.
- A Global Cutting Key library allows a number of devices to share the same cutting key libraries.
- Copies can be added or removed during production, so that the remaining copies can be adjusted without canceling the current production run.
- Multi-passing for lasers - Automatically repeats layers many times to cut dense materials.
- Keep Sequence - Maintain sequencing in imported files as defined by ArtiosCAD and other high-end CAD applications.

During ISA, i-cut Vision Pro 7.1 systems will be available for purchase at the i-cut, inc. booth.

Popular products from icuttools.com available at the booth

The i-cut Resource Center, accessible at www.icuttools.com, has a complete inventory of knife blades, router bits, tool inserts, perforation wheels and consumables for the i-cut digital cutting system. In addition to an online store, the site provides a number of helpful links, such as product information, support downloads, sample files and more. People can also register to join the site's free i-cut forum to discuss their use of i-cut Vision Pro and the i-cut workflow with a community of digital finishing experts. Pages are updated regularly.

During ISA, many products from icuttools.com - the site's most popular blades, bits and software products - are available for purchase on the show floor. In addition, visitors will be able to receive a 10%-off coupon for all consumable products available on icuttools.com.

Show specials make the i-cut booth an attractive booth to visit

Consumables are not the only items available at a special prince. During ISA, upgrades to i-cut Vision Pro 7.1 will be available for $1,000, which is $500 off the regular price. Only customers who purchase the system on the ISA show floor will receive the special price. Also, anyone who purchases a new complete i-cut vision system will receive a free hardware kit, worth $2,500.

"i-cut, inc. continues to update our i-cut Vision system to assure it is the most productive, fully featured solution available in the industry. The number of companies who partner with us, such as Trotec, is testament to the significant value-added benefits i-cut Vision Pro delivers to their customers," remarks Steve Bennett, Vice President, EskoArtwork Sign & Display Business. "We also want to use ISA as a reminder that we support our OEM partners with a website that offers easy access just about any i-cut tool for their customers."
