Onyx Graphics and Enfocus join forces to improve large format printing workflows

Onyx Graphics, Inc., today announced that as a Crossroads Partner, it has developed a Switch Configurator that supports the specific demands of large format printers. Based on Switch automation software from Enfocus, this new solution – called the ONYX Switch Configurator – will expand benefits of ONYX Connect software for graphics, textile, décor and industrial print applications by giving users an improved solution for automating their workflow. Onyx Graphics will be demonstrating the ONYX Switch Configurator at its stand J20 in Hall 1, at FESPA Digital 2016, March 8-11, 2016 in Amsterdam.

ONYX Connect is a module of ONYX Thrive workflow software created to support large format print workflows. It is an open system that gives users a simple developer interface tool that enables them to connect their business’ workflow solution to their ONYX software.

Enfocus Switch is an automation solution that enables any businesses to connect their investments in technology into efficient flows automating repetitive tasks while improving productivity and efficiencies. The openness of Switch technology makes it possible for companies like Onyx Graphics to use the configurators in Switch to connect and exchange data with its application.

Significant improvements in production

ONYX Switch Configurator software improves turnaround times by enabling print service providers to easily customise a range of job settings – including media selections, copies, print marks and job ticket information. The configurator also gives printer operators greater control of bleeds, so they can produce a variety of applications without the need to redesign the original artwork.

Using the ONYX Switch Configurator, users can create prints with grommet and sewing marks that ensure accurate grommet placement and finish-ready prints, guaranteeing greater accuracy throughout the large format production process. This solution provides print service providers a better ways to manage communications and track their operations. New bidirectional communication improves the process for selecting printers, cutters, and media. In addition, customer and order information can now be connected to the production jobs, enabling automated tracking of production.

Better together for large format workflows

The resulting collaboration between the two companies – and the creation of the ONYX Switch Configurator – expands the value of the ONYX solution and enables large format print shops to get the most out of their investment in the technology.

“Working with Enfocus to create the ONYX Switch Configurator extends the value of our technology by producing a solution that ensures our customers can produce jobs faster and more accurately, helping them to be more profitable than before,” said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics.

Bjorn Willems, Director Product Management at Enfocus, said, “Onyx Graphics has a wealth of experience working with large format printers. That is why we are so pleased to be working with them to create this configurator. It brings together the expertise of Onyx Graphics with the value of the Switch workflow to create a solution that meets the specific demands of large format print service providers. Enfocus is optimistic about the impact the ONYX Switch Configurator will have on businesses in this dynamic market.”
