Graphtec, a renowned cutting and measuring solutions leader, is excited to announce its new partnership with software supplier PrintFactory. The collaboration aims to deliver a tailored integration solution specifically designed for Graphtec cutting tables, revolutionizing customers’ Print & Cut workflow.
“This partnership marks an exciting milestone for us,” said Simon Posseth, General Manager from Graphtec. “The integration of PrintFactory with our machines enables customers to streamline their workflow by directly outputting from the PrintFactory application to a Graphtec cutter, ensuring a seamless Print & Cut process.”
PrintFactory is a complete print software ecosystem catering to the Large Format, Textile, and Industrial digital print industry. It encompasses workflow software equipped with network apps, smart tools, and XML instructions to enhance production speed by automating repetitive tasks.
“By combining Editor, Layout, Printstation, Workflow, and just-in-time cloud Automation components, this integrated software, in collaboration with Graphtec cutting plotters, enables pre-press corrections to original files in almost any format. This is just the first step in our integration journey, as we have exciting plans to collaborate with PrintFactory on additional features to further elevate the production quality customers can achieve with Graphtec cutting tables and tools.” Added Mr. Posseth.
The new integrated software offers several features specifically tailored to Graphtec users, including:
1. Rear and Front barcodes for continuous operation
2. XY intermediate Registration marks to ensure the most accurate cutting
3. Masked registration marks for high-reflective/colored/special media
4. Automatic crop mark generation from within PrintFactory.
Some of the standout features of PrintFactory include the integrated desktop Editor app, which allows users to make font changes, color corrections, and layout adjustments without the need for expensive third-party design apps. Additionally, PrintFactory’s integrated Layout app empowers printers to print, cut, nest, and create double-sided jobs efficiently, while handling white generation, specialty colors, and providing dedicated tools for various segments. PrintStation facilitates workload balancing and enhances production control, simplifying load distribution across teams. The Just-in-Time Cloud Nesting tool enables smart, automatic changes or manual adjustments to jobs up until the last second, without compromising production speed.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Graphtec to ensure seamless integration of our software ecosystem with their cutting solutions,” said Erik Strik, CEO of PrintFactory. “Our goal is to make PrintFactory workflow software readily available to an even broader range of customers worldwide, enhancing their printing capabilities.”
