Today, Onyx Graphics announced the global availability of Onyx TruFit, the company’s new shape-based nesting software. Using artificial intelligence to search millions of combinations for the most precise nests and media utilization, Onyx TruFit saves valuable print production time and reduces media usage up to 50%. Designed to work seamlessly across both Windows and Mac OS platforms and with any RIP solution on the market, TruFit brings speed and simplicity to even the most complex nested layouts.

“Print Service Providers are under increasing pressure to produce more with less, and media usage carries a major cost with every print job,” said Matt Crawford, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “This simple-to-use tool optimizes media utilization up to 50%, saving money on every job while improving output capacity in just seconds.” 

Onyx TruFit introduces new intuitive tools to save time, improve existing workflow efficiencies, and maximize media utilization. Automatic cut-path and tool type recognition creates a seamless workflow from design file to print file; single-click image tracing and double-sided printing drastically reduce file preparation time before submitting jobs to the RIP-Queue. Also, hot folders provide fully automated print-and-cut workflows. Coupled with keeping original file properties unchanged for named colors, transparencies, and color management, TruFit is built for any wide-format print environment.  

Highlights of ONYX TruFit include:

  •     Artificial intelligence engine for optimal shape-based nests, reducing media waste up to 50%
  •     Real-time media savings data during nest creation
  •      Single-click image tracing to reduce file preparation time
  •      Double-sided printing generated instantly for decals, stickers and other print applications
  •     Automatic cut-path and tool type recognition to work seamlessly from design file to print file
  •      Multi-page PDF edit capabilities to eliminate excess white space
  •     Automated workflows using ONYX hot folders
  •      Unchanged original file properties to maintain consistency between applications
  •     Output PDFs for any RIP solution available today saving costly software changes
  •      Open architecture to work cross-platform on Windows or Mac OS

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
