Technical Specs

Productivity Enhancers
Additional render capacity to increase throughput and drive additional devices Increases the amount of APPE instances to ensure that files are processed swiftly to avoid production stops. If required, the Asanti server can be expanded with additional computing power. By expanding the hardware of the Asanti environment, a fail-over solution becomes available.
One Way Vision An easy-to-use mechanism to create see-through graphics on non-perforated transparent material.
 Finishing integration
  • Adds cut lines using the Asanti cut editor. This editor detects outlines automatically and generates a cut line based on them. If needed, this automatic mode can be further finetuned by manually editing the cut line or drawing additional kiss cut lines.
  • Saves time when finishing products by adding barcodes. These barcodes identify the job and make sure the right cut file is loaded in your digital cutting device.
True Shape Nesting Optimized retention and positioning of irregular shapes on available media, based on copy count
Automate TP A new Task Processor, which provides more flexibility for collecting Hot Tickets by defining various rules/conditions that steer the processing of input documents depending on their attributes.
Seamless Step & Repeat To create curtains or wallpaper, a specially created image gets repeated horizontally and vertically, thus creating an endless pattern or image. This enhancer makes sure that the initial image is stepped in such a way that no white lines or seams are visible in the repeat print.
Packaging Embedded in the Asanti interface, the Asanti Packaging pack bundles all features that allow you to prepare and process packaging jobs: Importing a CAD design, adding artwork, managing overprint of flaps automatically snagging images to the right position… It manages the different station numbers and lets you resolve any potential bleed overlap and work out line types for structural and technical processing like dimensions, annotations, foils, glue, varnish…
