The printing Industry’s first and only automated, AI-driven preproduction software for packaging and labels.
Phoenix is a modern layout optimization program built for packaging.
Phoenix uses a powerful, dynamic imposition calculation to quickly determine the best distribution of orders to maximize each press run.
Model your production environment inside of Phoenix. Set-up your presses, stocks, marks, and finishing equipment then let Imposition A.I. do the rest.
No more clunky software designed in the 90’s. Phoenix is built on modern development stacks and it feels like it.
Quickly automate Phoenix with data from your website or business system using CSV spreadsheets.
Phoenix brings an all new approach to step-and-repeat with a simple drag-and-drop user interface.
Fill a sheet with the click of a button. Add new items by dragging and dropping them into the user interface.
Decorate your layouts with industry standard production marks. Add your own custom PDF or Scriptable marks for additional data transformation.
No need to remake a die ever again. Phoenix uses shape-detection to create a smart library.
Import CF2, PDF, or DXF file formats to ensure flawless automated plate layouts. Preserve step-and repeat parameters, sheet and board sizes, and varnish areas.
Define non-printing areas and mask-out unwanted areas of a design file. Adjust overlapping graphic masks intelligently and apply once to the entire layout.
Use tilia Phoenix’s advanced shape-detection feature to query the die library for exact multi-out die matches. Never remake a die for a job ever again!
Insert a placeholder for the Station Number that specifies attributes such as position, font, size, and the inks in which the number is to be printed.
Reduce press changeover and makeready with smarter production layouts. Let Phoenix enable your team to create faster and smarter combination calculations.
Automatically calculate optimal combination runs whether planning 3 SKUs or 300 SKUs. Imposition A.I. will compare run lengths, overruns, and inks to reduce press forms and optimize production.
The challenge with combination runs is determining the optimal balance between new press forms and waste. Tilia Phoenix uses cost-based intelligence to weight the different cost centers and derive the best results.
Imposition A.I. understands all types of finished products. Whether die-cut, guillotined, or high-die, tilia Phoenix understands your requirements and can create your layouts.
With so many ways to integrate, tilia Phoenix fits seamlessly into every packaging workflow solution. Integrations available via JDF, hotfolder, and REST API just to name a few.
Integrate with your existing business systems, websites, DFEs, and workflow tools in minutes. Learn more about Esko integrations and tech partners.
