XN goes up in sizes and materials
With the launch of the XN platform, Esko has extended its’ product range on offer to its customers allowing them to grow in both productivity and versatility as their needs grow: the Kongsberg XN suites the mid-range market while the XP platform addresses the highest needs in productivity and automation.

i-cut Automate 12: workflow automation software for sign and display shops
Now, with i-cut Automate 12, based on Automation Engine 12 technology, interactive features like the creation of cutting paths, adding bleeds and setting nesting parameters can all be automated. In a short run production environment, automatic creation of the most optimal print sheet layout is a clear way to increase capacity, reduce the risk for errors and reduce expensive substrate waste. By removing repetitive work from operators, more time is available for higher value operations, creative input and customer service — along with a faster delivery to customers and improved order to cash.
“Esko has upgraded and updated its range of digital finishing solutions for this drupa. Our lineup of hardware today ideally suits the needs of an ever growing range of applications requiring digital finishing: vinyl kiss cutting, digitally printed commercial brochures and folders, short run folding carton and corrugated packaging, signs in rigid materials, displays and interior decoration are only a selection of the many applications in need of a cost effective digital finishing solution.” Concludes Steve Bennett. “Besides that, we have extended our powerful i-Cut software suite and have populated it with applications that streamline the entire production process of sign and display from layout to printing to the finished results. We're excited to bring our range of digital finishing solutions to drupa and to show visitors that Esko has a solution for every need!”
