LIMAC Vision system
Digital Registration System

LIMAC Vision system is a digital camera/software based system that can visually recognize media registration marks and automatically compensate for skew, distortion and image drift. The LIMAC Vision system easily integrates into your existing workflow and is fully compatible with all the major RIP software packages. You simply add reference marks to your print file and output to the printer. Once the finished media is placed on the LIMAC CNC machine, the LIMAC Vision digital camera will automatically search for the registration marks. The software will then compare the actual printed images to the original file, make the necessary tool path adjustments, and instruct the machine to make the corrected cuts. LIMAC Vision is an open architecture system that easily integrates with traditional graphic arts and CAD/CAM software packages, allowing the user maximum long-term flexibility.

Digital Workflow
Simply add reference marks to your print file. Once the file is printed and placed on the LIMAC CNC machine, the LIMAC Vision camera will look for the registration marks. LIMAC Vision will then use this information to locate the images to be cut. The Vision system then adjusts for distortion, drift and rotation. The LIMAC CNC Machine will then make the corrected cuts. The LIMAC Vision is an open architecture system that easily integrates with traditional graphic art and tool-path software packages, allowing the user maximum long-term flexibility.

True-shape images come in all contours and sizes and are printed on all types of materials. Each image has to be cut using a specific cutting technology, which has been perfected by LIMAC. LIMAC manufactures cost-effective
CNC Routers, Lasers and Knife Cutters that accommodate true-shape cutting and improve your workflow efficiency. Our machines can even take it one step further by correcting mounting and printing errors.

LIMAC Vision system example

Task: Define; print and cut bunches of bananas that we printed onto a sheet of expended PVC.
1. An Artist illustrates photographs or scans the image of a bunch of bananas.
2. The artist "nests" the images either manually or using CAM graphics software.
3. The graphics or CAM software produces "cut lines" of each bunch of bananas in exact registration of each bunch.
4. The artist either manually inserts or uses the CAM graphics software to insert registration marks in the file.
5. The graphics or CAM software creates two files:
  • The raster print file
  • The vector cut line file
6. The artist produces a print layout of the nine bunches of bananas with the registration marks on a wide-format digital printer.
7. The printed output medium is placed on the bed of the LIMAC CNC machine.
8. The vector cut line file produced by the graphics software is filtered and sent to the LIMAC Digital Registration System.
9. LIMAC Vision system locates the registration marks, makes allowances for any printer errors and begins the cutting process.
10. The Operator has nine printed and cut bunches of bananas once the cutting sequence is complete.
