EskoArtwork demonstrates advanced pre-production solutions at Gulf Print & Pack

(PresseBox) (Ghent (Belgium), ) EskoArtwork ( will showcase how its sophisticated suite of digital flexo, workflow automation and pre-production solutions help customers competitively enhance their production at Gulf Print & Pack on stand C760. Gulf Print & Pack takes place at Dubai at Airport Expo, from March 14 to 17.

"The Middle East is an important market for EskoArtwork which is why we recently established a new sales office in Istanbul," says Jacques Staelens, EskoArtwork's Regional Business Manager MEA. "Gulf Print & Pack is traditionally a very busy show for us and we are confident our portfolio of solutions that enable our customers to optimize costs, streamline workflow and improve quality will again prove to be a must see for all visitors."

During the show, EskoArtwork will highlight following solutions on its stand:

- Suite 10 with integrated software solutions for packaging prepress, 3D structural design and quality assurance, collaboration and automation, and color management. Visitors can follow demonstrations of the Automation Engine 10 and version 10 releases of all editor applications: ArtPro 10, PackEdge 10, DeskPack 10, ArtiosCAD 10 and Studio 10. Integrated more than ever, Automation Engine 10 adds capabilities to the automation of repetitive tasks, and takes the human interaction out of the pre-production process. This avoids mistakes and saves considerable time and money.

- Packaging expertise with HD Flexo 2.0, which has been designed to help customers maximize their production capabilities, ensuring high quality and consistent flexo printing. It combines 4000 dpi HD optics on the EskoArtwork Cyrel Digital Imager (CDI) with advanced MicroCell screening technologies to produce sharper and more accurate imaging. The new version is an evolution of EskoArtwork's patented PlateCell technology and provides higher solid ink density (SID) for more vibrant colors on packaging while printing with standard flexo inks and anilox rollers.

- Versatility of substrate choice is one of the benefits demonstrated by the small format Kongsberg i-XE10. The high precision digital cutting table provides an efficient and adaptable digital finishing solution for short-run production of a variety of visual communications including sign and display and labels.
