Esko: Joining forces with Amtech to bring increased efficiency to corrugated converters
11th December 2018
As part of its ‘Packaging Connected’ strategy, Esko has entered into a strategic partnership with Amtech Software to facilitate additional automation for corrugated converters and increase efficiency for joint customers in the corrugated market. The companies are developing an integration of Esko’s ArtiosCAD, Automation Engine, and WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated with Amtech’s Encore ERP solution to enable bidirectional communication that eliminates double data entry and facilitates further automation of the workflow for corrugated converters. In the increasingly competitive marketplace, the demand for smaller lot sizes and shorter time to market is growing. The cooperation between Esko and Amtech aims to help corrugated converters streamline business processes and save time and money.
Esko’s ArtiosCAD is a popular structural design software for packaging converters. It features tools for packaging professionals working in structural design, product development, and virtual prototyping and manufacturing. Automation Engine is Esko’s workflow server. It automates prepress tasks, which speeds up the process, but also reduces the error rate and the need for operator intervention. WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated is a design workflow management solution for corrugated converters. Based on Esko’s WebCenter, it comes preloaded with proven workflows that increase capacity to handle a greater number of design requests with the same head count.
Amtech’s Encore ERP solution is cloud-enabled, mobile and tablet ready. It features real-time tracking of production and delivery, helping corrugated converters manage their plants with algorithmic trend detectors while optimising the performance of their people by enabling a mobile workforce. Combined, these solutions create an operational powerhouse for corrugated converters of all sizes.
