Esko and Fiery have announced a new technology partnership.
At Labelexpo 2023, the companies unveiled new integration between Fiery Impress and Esko Automation Engine. They say this will help print providers transition to digital print technologies using their existing workflows.
Esko and Fiery will develop innovative solutions that advance digital print technologies and packaging workflows. The companies will collaborate on workflow integrations to more rapidly develop new solutions. This will help brands and their print suppliers in the digital print and packaging industries.
The companies unveiled integration between Fiery Impress, the DFE for industrial inkjet presses and inline manufacturing lines, and Esko Automation Engine, the next generation prepress workflow automation solution. The integration allows customers to easily migrate their existing workflows for digital print technologies.
Maria Brilaki, senior director for product management at Fiery, says, “Esko is an ideal partner, sharing our vision for simplifying print workflows through digital technologies. By joining forces, we can bring to market integrated packaging workflow solutions, These will optimise the design to production to finishing process. In turn, we can help our customers achieve more precise colour reproduction, higher digital press efficiency, and sustainability.”
Geert De Proost, director of product software management at Esko, adds, “Esko holds a strong market position in prepress digitisation, automation, and connectivity. It offers a wide portfolio of solutions that accelerate the go to market process of packaged goods.
“Our customers need innovative, integrated technology to get to market faster and fulfil their design intent. From the start, there has always been seamless integration between the Esko DFE and Automation Engine. As Fiery Impress is driving a number of digital presses used by our global customers, it was the logical decision to integrate both products. So, we can offer a complete end-to-end workflow solution for digital print,”
