Caldera’s software for industrial print workflows will be at the fore of InPrint 2014, the new, dedicated exhibition for which it is a founding member. With a marked heritage in driving a wealth of functional and decorative applications using all common digital technologies, Caldera will show how its native functionality is already at the heart of industrial production, integrating various processes into a single user-focused solution.
At booth C36, Caldera will demonstrate how its rich feature set can drive and optimize the custom workflows found throughout the industrial print world. Upgrades in version 9.2, such as contour nesting and extensive PDF and color standards conformity, will be of particular interest to those looking to move into or expand their work within this area – as will its unique productivity offerings for the non-print elements of a factory, such as Zünd Cut Centre.
Crucially, Caldera’s modular architecture allows owners to expand their software’s functionality as dictated by production requirements. Options such as CostView, which provides carbon footprint calculations and cost visualization, can be downloaded and plugged in seamlessly to provide a scalable solution that grows in line with the business. All modules also integrate with Caldera’s Flow+ workflow suite, product specialists for which will be available to explain how holistic oversight and efficiency are vital for this type of output.
Many of Caldera’s OEM partners – including Durst, Thieme, Xanté, Zünd and Dubuit – will be in attendance and are certain to confirm its influential role in the adoption of digital technologies for industrial print. Often included at the research and development stage, Caldera has focused on delivering speed, color reproduction and process optimization with absolute precision, making it an indispensible and versatile partner for those in the industrial space.
“It’s well documented how analogue industrial print is set to grow by 20 percent over the next eight years, but we are focusing on the capabilities that digital can extend into this burgeoning territory,” explains Sebastien Hanssens, vice-president marketing and communications, Caldera. “Caldera users are already employing our software to produce onto materials as varied as ceramics and glass to specialist sporting equipment and wallpapers.
“Commentators are noting that, in industrial print, no two workflows are identical,” he continues. “Caldera is experienced in that: no two of our customers are the same, either, making us exceptionally well positioned to guide experience or novice adopters in the field. We’re confident that InPrint will be a superb showcase for the diverse and original role that digital print – and Caldera – can play in industrial production.”
