SAi supplies Flexi-based software for Graphtec plotters
SA International (SAi), a provider of software solutions for the professional sign, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, has announced a worldwide agreement with cutting technology giant, Graphtec, to supply three newly-created cutting software packages with the company’s entire range of large format vinyl cutters.
Driven by SAi’s market-leading Flexi software, the feature-rich cutting solutions – Cutting Master 4, Graphtec Pro Studio and Graphtec Pro Studio Plus – have been designed to meet the varied requirements of print service providers and sign and display companies.
The new three-tier offering replaces Graphtec’s previous software solution, also named Graphtec Pro Studio, and provides users with access to the specific design and cutting tools to suit their respective needs.
Commenting on the agreement, Hiroyuki Takahata, Senior Managing Director at Graphtec, said: “Our goal is to provide our customers with full access to a complete workflow to ensure that they can maximise the potential of our cutters. With the enhanced design and editing functions, the new SAi software solutions work in conjunction with our cutters to deliver greater productivity and incredible output. This partnership brings with it fantastic opportunities to expand application offerings and improve business operations for users.”
As a world leader in cutting technology, Graphtec’s portfolio includes flatbed, roll- and sheet-fed cutters, which deliver cutting widths of up to 162cm/64”. The new software packages comprise Graphtec Pro Studio Plus, which offers users the most comprehensive offering with a haul of new tools including smart nesting for designs that are larger than the substrate, Graphtec Pro Studio, which offers a vast catalogue of options when creating original designs and Cutting Master 4, which is designed as a Graphtec plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, thus enabling users to drive the cutter with minimum input.
Mark Blundell, CEO at SAi concludes: “We are proud to join forces with Graphtec and add it to a roster of leading strategic partnerships. With almost 70 years’ experience, Graphtec has built a reputation for providing pioneering cutters which is complemented by our industry-acclaimed Flexi-driven bundles. This collaboration provides Graphtec customers with the opportunity to enhance their business performance by increasing throughput and achieving premium quality applications.”
Available now, Graphtec Pro Studio and Graphtec Pro Studio Plus are compatible with Windows, and Cutting Master 4 is accessible on both Windows and Mac platforms.
