Esko and Ricoh Latin America Form Strategic Alliance to Provide End-to-End Solutions for the Digital Packaging Printing Market

Two shaking hands

New collaboration will deliver efficiency and productivity gains to packaging converters.

Esko and Ricoh Latin America have announced a strategic alliance to provide folding carton packaging companies across the region with a solid value proposition – end-to-end solutions comprised of Esko ArtiosCAD and Studio software with Ricoh’s digital presses.

ArtiosCAD is the world’s most popular CAD design software for packaging. With dedicated tools for structural design, product development, virtual prototyping and production, ArtiosCAD enables businesses to accelerate their productivity. Among its many benefits, ArtiosCAD provides full integration between structural design, graphic design and production files, enabling structural designers to spot potential inconsistencies which would result in costly errors further in the workflow.

When it comes to Esko Studio, it transforms flat design into high-quality 3D visualization, allowing the converter to impress its customers with stunning virtual packaging.
