Along with Fotoba cutters
Oce and Colex Imaging have joined forces to produce a workflow solution that streamlines the image nesting and trimming process. The package comprises Onyx Graphics software to prepare the files to be imaged, an Oce LightJet photo laser printer to image the files, a Colex processor to develop the imaged media, and a Fotoba cutter to trim the final output.
The Oce LightJet 430 prints up to 50-in. wide and the Lightjet 500XL prints up to 76-in. wide--allowing shops to nest smaller photos onto one large sheet to minimize waste. If done manually, nesting is a time-consuming process; but the Onyx software package (including ProductionHouse and PosterShop) automatically nests images to maximize media usage. The software also adds X-Y cutter marks between nested images for reading and autotrimming by the Fotoba Digitrim cutter. The LightJet then images the graphic and the Colex RTK Wide-Format DP Series Digital Ready RA4 Processor develops the output from the LightJet. The final print goes to the cutter for trimming.
The Oce LightJet, Onyx Graphics software, and Fotoba cutter can be purchased directly from Oce; the Colelx RA4 Processor can be purchased from Colex. (Oce: www.oce.com; Colex Imaging: www.colex.com; Fotoba: www.fotoba.com)
