Polar has announced that it is now offering an additional version of the workflow software Compucut  GO, for setting up cutting programs.  Designed according to the motto ‘Plug and Cut’, there is no need to even install the software, as it runs on the medium which is installed on a computer.
The PC is integrated into the network and therefore connects the prepress stage to the guillotine type cutter. At the prepress stage, the digital sheet layout is stored as a PPF or JDF file. This file is then placed into the Hot Folder which is regularly checked by Compucut GO. Every time Compucut GO detects a new file, it starts processing it right away. Based on a strictly defined sequence of initial cuts it sets up the cutting program and sends it immediately to the memory of the machine.
