Contour Nesting Software

What is Contour Nesting?

  • Contour Nesting is a new option of Caldera’s Visual and Grand ranges. It is dedicated to cut and allows you to take into account the object’s real shape inside the image so the element can be optimally placed to save media.

The purchase of a specific key is required to use this option.


How does it work?

  • An image is always created in a rectangle, even for PNG files without background or with transparent background. Using Contour Nesting, Caldera can now find the exterior cut contour and use it to redefine the image. This makes it possible to nest the images by taking into account their real shape and not place them as rectangular bricks. To make this nest, Caldera’s algorithm tests, for every image, its available positions including margins, and selects the best combination of images to save media. The image rotation can be +/- 90° or 180° to search the best nesting layout possible.

Visual Cut Software

For Graphtec, Summa, Mimaki, Mutoh and Roland roll cutters, Visual Cut Software will automatically set up cut marks for the specific device it is driving and guide the machine along the document’s embedded contours. VisualCUT makes even complex cutting easy with the software’s ability to manage multiple contours in one file.

Grand Cut Software

Supporting Zünd Cut Center, Zünd Touch & Cut, Aristo, Multicam, Grafitroniks, OptiSCOUT and Duncan controllers, your print-to-cut workflow has never been simpler than with GrandCUT.

Cost Proof Ink and Media Calculation Software

Cost Proof Ink and Media Calculation Software estimates your printing costs by calculating the ink and media consumption per PRINT job. Simply enter your ink and media purchasing costs into the system and CostProof will accurately determine the quantities of each needed for printing the job. The costs of the job can then be displayed at RIP time before you launch the printing process.

Cost View Software

Positioned as a dashboard for a manager sensitive to production costs, CostView now has an eco-sensitive dimension. Its newest and most important feature is the addition of a carbon footprint analysis tool. Users can now indicate the CO2 emitted by each of the elements of the job: ink, media, electricity, additional costs.

With CostView, any production manager can view all jobs in the spooler, monitor ink and media costs, add optional or automatic costs to each job and export the job listing with all relevant costs as a spreadsheet ready for further analysis. Its web driven interface can be accessed by any user in your company network using a simple web browser. Joseph Mergui, CALDERA CEO : “By introducing ecoresponsible data into our RIP solutions, CALDERA’s ambition is to keep its leadership in innovating the wide format printing industry“

Print Standard Software

Caldera’s Print Standard Software is a new tool to check the conformity of printing processes with industry standards. It provides a solution to the ever-increasing requests for standards compliance in the digital printing market. While certifications linked to universally recognised standards have existed for years in offset print, digital print has many variables that make it difficult to establish a global standard. However, standards research and definition is now supported by organisations like Fogra, ISO or G7 to aid digital PSPs in achieving a certified process standard. To bring customers more accuracy and quality, Caldera has decided to subscribe to the FOGRA organization. This support allows Caldera to add some printing process checking tools to its RIP solutions. As Caldera’s full project will be released step by step, the 9.10 Version is the first to contain a new tool to check the conformity to FOGRA’s PSD and PSO certifications, G7 certifications and to the ISO Standards: ISO 12647-2, ISO 12647-7 and ISO 12647-8.
