Check files against Enfocus PitStop preflight profiles with smart view modes to alert the prepress professional to mistakes before making plates.
ArtPro+ is the world’s first application supporting ISO-19593. Accurate preflighting helps to avoid expensive rejects.
The screening quality tool enables operators to view, control and apply screening on separate parts of the artwork. Different colors project different screening applications without the need to rip the job.
Manually trapping packaging artwork can take hours and requires highly skilled professionals.
The new trapper in ArtPro+ 20 handles highly complex packaging designs. ArtPro+ can trap files fully automatically. Exceptions can be saved and will be used after a change is made to the file, so there’s no need to retrap the whole file.
ArtPro+ recognizes text objects in a PDF and combines them in to meaningful textboxes. New character and font recognition functionality also turn outlined fonts into editable text for easy amends. Text changes in outlined text can now be performed as efficiently as live text.
PDF Action Lists automate prepress tasks without special programming or scripting skills. In ArtPro+, simply drag actions into a list. These can be used directly in ArtPro+ or run fully automated in an Esko Automation Engine workflow. It’s the perfect way to get rid of repetitive tasks that take time but must be performed manually time and again.
Adding measurement information to packaging artwork is labor intense and slow. The new configurable dimensioning tool helps draw dimension lines to any selected object.
In ArtPro+, barcodes that were supplied with the artwork (but might not be verified) can safely be converted into reliable Esko barcodes. A compare feature highlights any deviation to make sure that customizations are captured. Doing it with ArtPro+ you can work faster and eliminate the chance of making mistakes while creating a new barcode.
ArtPro+ can warp graphics to compensate for distortions during the packaging production process. Any graphic in a native PDF files can be warped using ArtPro or PackEdge grid files (.grd, .grid).
With the new non-destructive warping feature, files stay fully editable allowing the design to be changed at any moment.
With ArtPro+ Advanced, step and repeat layouts for labels, flexibles and folding carton workflows can be created. Graphic objects can be upgraded to a ‘Dynamic Mark’ with smart coloring and positioning parameters so printing sheets with printer marks is a one-click operation.
Creating warp grids for non-symmetrical shapes is an iterative process that requires skilled professionals and can take hours or days to finalize.
Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves is now available in ArtPro+. Users can now interactively pre-distort graphics for shrink sleeves production. What took hours, takes now minutes!
What’s more, ArtPro+ users also get Studio’s superb 3D visualization which makes sharing mockups with print buyers even more powerful.
Build powerful reports for Automation Engine in ArtPro+ without scripting
Conventionally color matching images and artwork to the final printing profile is very time consuming. What’s more, it requires a highly skilled operator.
Available solutions on the market are not optimized for editing artwork that has been converted from spot colors MCPP.
The new Equinox tool in ArtPro+ gives the user the ability to color-match with one click without restricting the control to optimize for various print requirements.
The optimal shape to cut a flexo plate is largely defined by the graphic content of each separation. Each job needs to be addressed individually.
In ArtPro+ 20, the creation of cutting paths is a one-click operation saving up to 30 mins preparation per layout!
The ArtPro+ June release contains a public prerelease of this module. Staggered Cut users can try for free. The November release will include the full version. If you're interested in testing this great new feature, please contact us.
