September 30, 2007, Lake Geneva, WI: Mikkelsen Graphic Engineering announces a major increase in the partner XY plotters that support the industry standard i-cut Vision-based Finishing System. New partnerships have been formed with Kutrite Solutions in North America, featuring the Q-Kut line of Anderson manufactured routers powered by i-cut, CIELLE S.r.l. of Treviso Italy, featuring the Epsilon series of routers powered by i-cut and the Teckwin Shanghai branded OEM version of the i-cut GraphicsRouter. Microsystems, a controller manufacturer for routing, cutting and laser tables has also become a private label integrator of the patented i-cut technology for its OEM's who use its WinCNC controllers in their products. Microsystems' controllers power 8 cutting devices, of which at least three have already shown interest in a vision system. These agreements brings to 15, the number of cutter-router-laser-controller partners standardizing on i-cut controlled finishing that can be selected, according to the varied needs of any customer.
All of the major wide format RIP and Printer companies work with MGE's patented i-cut and i-script workflow allowing any customer to standardize on workflow, while maintaining the opportunity to pick and choose from the best RIP, printer or flat bed cutter partner at any point in time, regardless of the equipment currently in use.
