    Enfocus SWITCH and Fuji XMF - to intergrate or not

    This is exactly how I feel. I have no idea how people are satisfied with the newer versions of Metrix. The program is SO SLOW and FULL OF BUGS. After EFI took over, Metrix took a nosedive. Worst part is they have 1 person in tech support GLOBALLY and their customer support is entirely...

    Metrix 2016 & 2017 is SLOW!!

    Unfortunately Matt is the one and only support worldwide. I have been told several times from EFI that our situation was an outlier - that other Metrix users were not experiencing the sluggishness and crashes we were - so it's nice to know we aren't the only ones with these issues. At this...

    Metrix 2016 & 2017 is SLOW!!

    I tested on a clean Sierra install and am coming up with the same slugginess. I am starting to think this is a widespread issue with Metrix and most companies are sticking with it because they are committed to their workflow. I'm not too hopeful but we will be testing on Windows clients to see...

    Metrix 2016 & 2017 is SLOW!!

    Thanks for your input. I agree with your take on Metrix support. Matt has been helpful and for the most part, responsive. Unfortunately there is only so much he can do when EFI does not feel it necessary to have more than one person supporting the entire Metrix customer base. If you don't mind...

    Metrix 2016 & 2017 is SLOW!!

    Thanks for the reply. We were planning on getting some new workstations but have not yet done so. So far, testing has been done on my personal MBP (i7 2.3ghz, 16 gb ddr3) running Sierra 10.12.6. No customization has been done to the fonts or any other resource. We are aware of all of the...

    Metrix 2016 & 2017 is SLOW!!

    We are a gang run shop and have been using Metrix 2011 for the last 7 years with no issues. It has all the capabilities and functions we need, and more importantly, the program runs smoothly and does not stutter. Recently, our older machines with OS 10.6 have been showing signs of failure so we...

    Therm-o-type NSF Ultra or any similar substitutes

    We are a gang run printer looking for a die cutting machine to help speed up our turn time on die cuts. Right now, we do all of our die cutting on an original heidelberg platten press and a larger kluge but we find our selves constantly playing catch up. We would like to add a machine that can...

    Designer showed a customer final files without overprint preview settings on, really?

    Not sure what RIP you guys use but after countless years of "leaving customer files untouched" and doing our best to manually figure out ways to catch issues such as these, I recently changed our RIP to knock out all CMYK white. We run several hundred jobs gang run daily and have yet to see a...

    EQUIOS vs Xmf

    How sure are you about this? We switched over to XMF a while ago (over PRINERGY due to costs). We do a LOT of business with Fuji (~$30,000 a month), so I doubt they would price gouge but I can't help but wonder if we've paid a premium price for nothing.

    Autobond 52 SUV-SDF Spot UV

    Thanks for the reply. I have since reached out to Oran and will be sending out a few hundred printed sheets to test (unfortunately they do not have any 40" machines set up for testing in the US, test sheets are being sent to the UK). The machine looks great and robust enough for commercial use...

    Autoprint Fine Coat 80? Any experience??

    For anyone that might be looking for info on this machine, it is actually rebranded as a Kompac Kwik Finish UV Coater in the states. Kompac specializes in making some parts in the Autoprint machine and have since partnered up with them and brought it here. It registers via a cylinder that...

    Autobond 52 SUV-SDF Spot UV

    Does anyone have any experience with this machine? We run anywhere from 1M to 10M impressions daily for spot UV on matte AQ and/or silk lam and are in the market for something more efficient with less setup and run time. Any information would be much appreciated.

    Autoprint Fine Coat 80? Any experience??

    Yes unfortunately the video is the all we've been able to find on this machine. I understand they are based in India but I'm surprised there is so little information out there on them. Especially when they are producing machines as versatile and robust as this one. We are an 8up shop so a 40"...

    Autoprint Fine Coat 80? Any experience??

    We are an 8up gang run offset printer looking for a more efficient and reliable spot UV process. Right now we are running a 40" Sakari but anyone familiar with the process knows it can be cumbersome and takes quite a bit of skill and experience to perfect. While researching, we came across the...
