PrintVis includes a guide that will display possible combinations of machines, print cylinders and dies for specific product parameters. This is specifically intended to further support PrintVis customers in the narrow web label production industry, but of course applies to any print production scenario which involves the use of tools, such as steel rule dies for the folding carton industry.

On a Job Item it is possible to select up to four tools for production. In former versions, the Imposition Type of the most recently selected tool was chosen for the layout on the Specification Card. Now it is possible to predefine which tool will determine the imposition/cut-off for production, in the setup.

When a customer requests a label product of certain size and shape, the PrintVis Tools Selection Guide will search for existing dies and cylinders that meet the desired specifications, also suggesting possible combinations of available tools for an optimal production plan.
