Workflow Made Easy: Canon Solutions America Launches the Océ ProCut Auto Pilot System
Canon Solutions America Inc. (Booths 2435 and 2525) is showcasing enhancements to its Océ ProCut digital finishing systems with the new Océ ProCut Auto Pilot automation option, now commercially available in two configurations. The versatile, next-generation options are poised to provide customers with near unprecedented workflow productivity.
To ensure jobs are printed and delivered on time, organizations are consistently investing in efficient finishing options that keep the process as seamless as possible. With the Océ ProCut Auto Pilot system, Canon Solutions America brings to market “one click” technology that automatically identifies and initiates processing of all jobs placed on a predefined area of the Océ ProCut large-format cutter. Additionally, multiple jobs on different media can be quickly identified, while finishing becomes automatically initiated.
As part of the advancements to the digital finishing systems, a Canon DSLR camera within the Auto Pilot will recognize the fiducial mark on each printed piece and automatically call up the correct cutting data. This enhancement is designed to eliminate the need to manually scan a barcode and provide users with quicker turnaround times. Once the job is recognized by Auto Pilot, the Océ ProCut Vision software automatically begins finishing using the tool settings pre-defined in the Vision software. To ensure this capability is included, users must make sure the router and/or tools are installed in the Universal Modules.
“Workflow efficiency and automation are key drivers in overall productivity,” says Sal Sheikh, VP, Marketing, Large Format Solutions, Canon Solutions America. “With the latest advancement in our large-format finishing options, the Océ ProCut Auto Pilot system not only creates workflow efficiencies, it offers more flexible and versatile workflow options to keep jobs on time and productivity intact.”
With reliability, versatility and flexibility all built into one system, the benefits add up quickly. Some of the most pivotal benefits include:
