automatic media usage optimization

The Shiraz Carbon RIP software employs a very sophisticated nesting algorithm that can be tailor made to suit different production requirements. The nesting layout is calculated based on the current roll or sheet size. Only jobs for the same media type and printing mode are nested together. The minimum area coverage, number of jobs or time elapsed can be set by users to further control their production needs.

The nesting system is dynamic, meaning that the server will automatically update the nesting arrangement as new jobs are submitted or various printer parameters are changed. Furthermore the nesting layout can visually be edited by users if required. The default nesting can be set to either row based or area based depending on the users preferences.
