Print finishing industry leaders, Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc., announce their partnership with full service computer integration company, Cimex Corporation. The new partnership will allow Kluge to package Cimex CimPACK Lite and Diemaker software modules with the Kawahara Automatic Blank Separator as an optional accessory. Presently, the Kawahara is solely distributed in the U.S. by Kluge.
The partnership serves two purposes:
From a presale standpoint, Cimex CimPACK software enables Kluge to import and review prospects’ present dieline files and overlay the Kawahara TXR-1100 or TXR-800 pin templates. This procedure helps Kluge determine if the specific layout can be blanked (or separated) on the Kawahara prior to the close of the sale. In certain situations where the die lines are not compatible with the pin templates, Cimex CimPACK software can be utilized to modify the supplied dieline layout to make it compatible with the Kawahara templates. The altered file can then be simply exported back to the prospect for review.
From the user’s perspective, Cimex CimPACK software will assist in the correct layout from die lines for efficient blanking on the Kawahara Automatic Blank Separator. Using this software, the layout of the die lines can be manipulated to ensure minimal paper waste, increased productivity and elimination of the “trial and error” layouts process.
Cimex CimPACK software is compatible with most major CAD Design and Manufacturing Systems.
