    Robust inkjet paper for maps and construction drawings: New Enduro product from SiHL

    Durables from SiHL are characterised by their special quality: They are tear-resistant, robust, and offers the best printability.  With ENDURO Inkjet 110 Classic 2s, the latest product in the ENDURO range, SiHL presents a durable composite material consisting of a PP film core and surface-treated inkjet papers:  Its high folding strength makes it ideal for maps, technical drawings, and similar applications.  Its high wet strength and tear resistance makes it a reliable partner for demanding cartography.

    The special paper surfaces on both sides provide the best results in water-based inkjet printing, it is also suitable for offset and flexo printing and can therefore be used versatile.  It is also easy to write on by hand and a pencil marking can be erased perfectly without any loss of the print.

    Thanks to its quilt-layer product structure, the material offers a durable solution and at the same an affordable, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to fully synthetic media.  It is PVC-free and FSC certified and the paper fibers are recoverable through standard paper-recycling processes.   Hence the end-user may dispose of the material along with household paper waste.

    Onyx Graphics announces global launch of Onyx TruFit software

    Today, Onyx Graphics, Inc., announced global availability of ONYX TruFit, the company’s new shape-based nesting software. Using artificial intelligence to search millions of combinations for the most precise nests and media utilisation, ONYX TruFit saves valuable print production time and reduces media usage up to 50%. Designed to work seamlessly across both Windows and Mac OS platforms and with any RIP solution on the market, ONYX TruFit brings speed and simplicity to even the most complex nested layouts.

    “Print Service Providers are under increasing pressure to produce more with less, and media usage carries a major cost with every print job,” said Matt Crawford, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “This simple-to-use tool optimises media utilisation up to 50%, saving money on every job while improving output capacity in just seconds.”

    ONYX TruFit introduces new intuitive tools to save time, improve existing workflow efficiencies, and maximize media utilisation. Automatic cut-path and tool type recognition creates a seamless workflow from design file to print file; single-click image tracing and double-sided printing drastically reduce file preparation time before submitting jobs to the RIP-Queue, and ONYX hot folders provide fully automated print-and-cut workflows. Coupled with keeping original file properties unchanged for named colours, transparencies and colour management, ONYX TruFit is built for any wide-format print environment.

    Highlights of ONYX TruFit include:

    • Artificial intelligence engine for optimal shape-based nests, reducing media waste up to 50%
    • Real-time media savings data during nest creation
    • Single-click image tracing to reduce file preparation time
