Esko will demonstrate a variety of workflow and production tools for packaging, wide format, and digital print on booth 3402 during Graphics Canada 2013, taking place from 21-23 November at the Toronto International Centre.

Esko will showcase a Kongsberg digital finishing table. There will be an area for demonstrations of Suite 12.1, Esko's latest version of software solutions covering an entire range of design, workflow and collaboration. For sign and display shops, Esko will focus on i-cut Suite, a collection of pre-production solutions that streamline the workflow for digital printing and finishing throughout the entire production process. Esko is also actively involved in the educational programme during Graphics Canada.

Marc Raad, Esko Account Manager, Canada said, 'Esko continues to invest in print and packaging businesses in Canada. For example, our commitment scheduling three separate presentations during Graphics Canada 2013 is just another example of our support of Canadian businesses. Were excited that we will have a Kongsberg finishing table on our booth this year. It offers profound benefits for both packaging and sign and display companies. Many Canadian companies have acquired a Kongsberg table during the past year.'

Kongsberg tables are used to cut and finish prototypes, labels, short run packaging, and wide format jobs. One of the highlights of the booth is the Kongsberg i-XN 24, easily the most versatile digital finishing device ever introduced. It comes with a wide range of specialty tools offering speed, power and flexibility to automatically handle a wide variety of materials, such as corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, wood and a long list of plastics. MultiCUT-HP (High Power) is equipped with a water-cooled milling spindle delivering up to three times faster milling speeds.

Esko will showcase the latest version of its Suite 12 software. While the complete, wide range of design, prepress and workflow applications will be on display, Esko will also focus on a few primary solutions, Studio is a fast and easy way to turn ideas into beautiful 3D images for creative development. There is no more need to produce physical mock-ups all the time. Users have an accurate and technically correct package on the screen. While conventional mock-ups may be required, with Studio virtual mock-ups are faster and cheaper for initial design reviews.
