SAi and Avery Dennison team up
SA International (SAi) has partnered with Avery Dennison to develop specialised software for the company’s TrafficJet Print System. The FlexiSIGN & PRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet and FlexiPRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet software will feature on the new system, which is designed to allow the production of certified output for the highly-regulated global traffic signage market.
As well as incorporating the TrafficJet large format digital printer, the bundle includes the specially-designed versions of SAi’s software, which is optimised for traffic sign production.
The Avery Dennison TrafficJet Print System’s CMSpot6 ink setup uses six dedicated spot colors that match the regulated traffic signage. Using FlexiSIGN & PRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet edition, users can extend this colour gamut to create custom blends from those spot colors, enabling the production of additional regulated colors, such as purple, orange, and gray, or produce process colours on reflective or commercial graphics. This offers the opportunity to efficiently produce a wider range of traffic signage that adheres to required specifications.
Additionally, unique to this system, is an ink estimation tool which allows users to set ink limits independently and provides accurate estimation of ink usage for each print job, thus delivering greater control and further flexibility.
The TrafficJet Print System also incorporates a time-saving Spot Color Mapping tool which offers easier mapping between current or international sign databases by automatically mapping to the CMSpot6 Ink Setup. This improves production workflow efficiencies by eliminating the time needed to reassign spot colours or use expensive third-party color mapping software. This feature also maps a user’s existing art library to Traffic Spot Colours, or if coluors are moved from one spot location to another.
In addition to full print and cut capabilities, the user-friendly FlexiSIGN & PRINT and FlexiPRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet software features SAi’s contour cut True Shape Nesting feature, which enables up to 30 percent savings on print and cut jobs by optimising media usage.
As well as an error-proof interface to help ensure the production of compliant signs, the software helps speed up media selection thanks to a dedicated cloud page that takes users directly to the Avery Dennison Reflective Solutions website.
