Tilia Labs Releases Griffin 1.0
May 23, 2017 By PrintAction Staff
Tilia Labs Inc., of Ottawa, Ontario, creator of tilia Phoenix for planning and imposition automation, has released its new automatic layout solution for wide format printers, called tilia Griffin. The software was first announced just prior to drupa in May 2016.
tilia Griffin is a prepress solution to automate the layout creation process for wide format printing. It features what the company describes as a modern, ultra-responsive interface and intuitive design. Griffin leverages the Phoenix nesting engine to create true-shape tightly nested layouts, explains Tilia, helping drive down substrate costs, reduce errors, and increase throughput.
The workflow in Griffin is simple, explains Tilia, and can be mastered with minimal training. To start out, artwork files are input into the system with various production information such as quantity, shape and size. Users can then select from a library a substrate board or roll size and automatically generate nesting. Once nesting has completed, marks such as registration, barcodes, and grommets are automatically added. Finally, output can be generated for printing and cutting using presets for different devices.
“The release of tilia Griffin today marks a big milestone for our company. It is our second product to roll out into the market, and it also shows our dedication to the wide format segment, which we feel has a lot of room to grow and we have a lot of value to offer,” said Sagen de Jonge, CEO of Tilia Labs. “Initial testing with beta customers has been very positive so we’re excited to now begin offering to the general public and confident customers will enjoy fast return on investment with the time savings and advantages it has to offer.”
