PrintFactory announces a key partnership with Fotoba
PrintFactory now generates a barcode for the new Fotoba automatic slicer positioning cutter XLA series.
Since 1974 , Fotoba International has been the leader in developing and manufacturing finishing equipment for digital printing ,wallpaper and textile application. Fotoba’s core business is automatic devices mainly applied to the wide format finishing world. Several patented ideas distinguish Fotoba including Digitrim, the XLD Series, Multi Cutter and much more.
PrintFactory’s workflow supports Fotoba cutters.
The marks can be generated and printed in both automated and interactive environments including the XLA Series – Fotoba’s answer to further optimise finishing. The relevant job data is placed directly on the print and the Fotoba XLA reads this information to cut everything in the correct final format. Whether single or multiple-up, the side knives automatically move to the correct position.
PrintFactory’s workflow software includes device-link oriented, feature-rich tools that make life easier for teams working on the production floor – an editing package to speed up production; nesting and tiling tools that deliver the best possible layouts, with complete manual control; and a world-class colour engine that can guarantee the right colour, across all media, and devices.
In addition, the software has been designed to be ‘one click’ wherever possible, with in-app tools that make life easier for users. PrintFactory’s RIP-based software connects multi-manufacturer environments seamlessly and the workflow software supports over 2,000 printers and cutters.
With PrintFactory, Fotoba customers can automatically nest jobs and create layouts that communicate automatically with the knife positions. This seamless integration of automatic knife adjustment allows for variable sizes and most importantly greater speed and efficiency.
In general, PrintFactory software is delivered via a network of distributors, worldwide: it delivers increased productivity, guarantees lower ink costs with no detriment to print quality, improves margins thanks to reduced waste media, and ensures consistent colour, time after time. The company’s partnerships with device manufacturers bodes well for not only standard markets, but also for industrial scale operations.
