Esko's printing and cutting workflows will help your company every step of the way

ArtiosCAD is the ideal CAD design editor for POP displays and all corrugated and folding carton packaging.

ArtiosCAD is the world’s most popular structural design software for POP displays and has the perfect tools for efficient box packaging design, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be an expert to start using it.

ArtiosCAD comes with modules ranging from easy to use modules to support business without CAD design skills all the way to sophisticated tools for the most demanding display and packaging designers.

2. Get graphical files print ready

Before going to the press or the printer, it is essential to do a quality check on all the files. It is the best way to avoid rejects and poor print results.

Streamlined throughput with i-cut Suite

The i-cut Suite ensures perfect output by standardizing each graphical file on the PDF format and checking all parameters required by the press.

The i-cut Suite prepares the graphics and creates the layouts for print and finishing, guaranteeing perfect registration.

3. Take visual control of your workflow

When files are printed, they are ready to be cut on a Kongsberg cutting table. Esko helps you with getting the cutting done efficiently and with perfect results.

Optimize your daily planning

In order to optimize the daily planning you want to see the backlog of waiting jobs and distribute them well.

You can distribute the workload sorted on customer, to reach a specific deadline or you can sort on material, to optimize the equipment efficiency. You receive accurate job estimation each time you edit the job list.

Device Manager
Take control, keep an overview

During production you want to stay in control; see what jobs are lined up, track them, and put a job on hold to allow a priority job...

You no longer need to disturb an operator or walk to the cutting table to see how the production is going: just place the overview on a screen in the shop floor and everyone stays in the loop.
