A PDF workflow standardizes results, as already discovered by commercial printers worldwide. It reduces file size and complexity, eliminates image/font linking errors and is the most effective way to enable a web-to-print solution.
i-cut Preflight is a powerful PDF preflight and editing solution for large format printing. Problems are reported and fixed automatically before going to print. There’s no need open Adobe Illustrator and lose time trying to determine why the file will not print properly. i-cut Preflight will fix it automatically, or allow manual editing directly on the PDF file. Error reporting makes communicating the faults back to file creators a snap. A library of optimized HP Scitex profiles for all printer/rip combinations are available.
i-cut Layout optimizes sheet layout. Rectangular shapes, irregular shapes, double-sided jobs, tiled jobs, i-cut Layout will always determine the most cost efficient layout to reduce substrate usage and waste. Using only a single copy of each image file it vastly reduces file size and rip times. Automatically creates die lines and bleeds, a difficult and time consuming manual task.
Your HP Scitex printers will run faster with i-cut Suite workflow. Faster rip times, optimized image resolution for each application, fewest number of sheets/rolls with tightly packed images, automatic back-to-back image registration, tiling of over-sized images, printed parts correctly labeled for the kitting stage, and more. Your printer keeps running with utilization and yield drastically up. i-cut Suite is compatible with all HP Scitex printers and RIPs.
