Hybrid Software and A B Graphic International (ABG) have partnered to streamline operations and enhance efficiency on the shop floor, centred around three key areas that promise to deliver unprecedented operational enhancements.
Hybrid Software’s automation will seamlessly transmit slitting parameters to the ABG Digicon Series 3 machine through the ABG Connect platform. This integration will effectively eliminate the need for manual setup, reducing human touchpoints and paving the way for increased productivity.
The partnership brings about a more automated process for driving ABG’s proprietary camera inspection technology, fleyeVision. Through a direct link to Hybrid’s CLOUDFLOW software, fleyeVision can retrieve the “golden image” required for inspection, minimising the potential for errors and optimising quality control.
The ABG DigiLase machine will benefit from CLOUDFLOW’s ability to incorporate QR codes representing corresponding dielines for laser cutting. ABG’s laser technology and its innovative approach ensures precise and efficient laser cutting while maintaining the highest levels of accuracy.
ABG sales director Matt Burton said, “We are very pleased with this new collaboration with Hybrid Software which marks another significant step towards reducing manual touchpoints in our processes. This is another key component of our ABG Connect package as we push towards automation that will not only add greater efficiencies to production but also reduce operator error whilst reducing waste and downtime.”
Hybrid Software associate director Bert Van der Perre added, “Linking our pre-press automation solution to ABG equipment elevates the overall equipment effectiveness for our many mutual customers. This partnership extends the boundaries of our software’s capabilities, showcasing our commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation. We are truly going beyond print.”
