Tilia Phoenix is a highly powerful and AI-based impositioning tool that auto-populates die cavities based on ordered quantities. Thanks to Tilia Lab’s development of their CERM Connector, the CERM MIS – Phoenix integration is now a completely seamless and cross-platform layout optimizer tool for folding carton, packaging, and sheetfed label production.
Integration with the layout optimizer is available in the CERM MIS during the estimation process and in the job management. In both applications, the CERM MIS operator instantly gets different impositioning solutions, from where he can select his preferred layout. Tilia Phoenix calculates the best layout solutions based on the strategy of your choice: least possible waste, lowest production time, lowest production cost, or lowest number of sheets used. Tyler Thompson, Solutions Director for Tilia Labs, shared: “Our customers know that integrated software solutions deliver the biggest impact, especially when best-in-class companies working together. The integration with CERM and Tilia Labs enables estimators and planners to find the most cost-efficient production plans in seconds, with mission critical data pushed back into CERM in real time.”
In estimation, multiple shapes are ganged and nested for one or multiple given paper sizes. In job management, products are ganged based on an existing die cut tool layout, but the software provides also solutions for new nested impositions. The output of the calculation is stored in the CERM MIS.
