Updated solutions from OneVision Software for wide format printing
Automated cut line merging

OneVision Software together with partner Canon will present the new version of its wide format automation suite for automating the prepress stage of wide and super wide format printers at the FESPA. OneVision is showing its solutions for the printing industry not only on the booth of its technology partner Canon Deutschland, but also on its own booth.

Just in time for FESPA, the Regensburg-based company is releasing its new software version 18.1 of the automation software for large format printers, which contains new nesting features. Thanks to automated intersection line merging, the number of intersection lines and thus the cutting time is considerably reduced. In addition, spot colors can now be extracted from PDF files. For example, cut lines or white masks can be automatically removed for printing and at the same time a separate file can be created with only the spot colors for further processing – e.g. by a cutter. The automation of this task speeds up production times.

“The automation of the production workflow is becoming increasingly important for our customers, who produce a wide variety of applications on our printing systems. We are meeting these requirements more and more with the close cooperation with OneVision. So, a full automation of data acceptance, data checking and data preparation up to the printing system is possible. This makes it possible to achieve quick and lasting effects when considering the commercial aspects of production” Mathieu Peeters, marketing director B2B Canon Deutschland GmbH, comments.

However, the cooperation and automation does not end with printing, but continues during the cutting process. At the OneVision booth, various print products made of rigid and flexible material, prepared and nested with OneVision software, will be cut live on site with the Oce ProCut G3 2500L.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
