- Software Manufacturer


EUROSYSTEMS was founded. Because in those days the available sign-making software was more or less custom-made on manufacturer-specific systems and very expensive, they decided to develop their own software. On the basis of the revolutionary user surface of Microsoft Windows 3.0, EUROSYSTEMS developed with EuroCUT a stand-alone open-architecture sign-making software which set benchmarks regarding intuitive operability, ergonomics and value for money.


EUROSYTEMS became a Corel Solution Partner and developed CoCut - the world's first cutting software plug-in for CorelDRAW - and one of the most successful ideas in the signmaking software market began. CoCut met the strong demand in the signmaking market for software which works closely with CorelDRAW, the major design software in the PC market. Sign-makers all over the world loved the idea of having software fully integrated in the CorelDRAW desktop, which makes CorelDRAW cut simply by pressing a button without importing and exporting.


During the years CoCut became more powerful. EUROSYSTEMS joined the Adobe Solutions Network. Based on OPOS, EUROSYSTEMS developed the Automatic Alignment Tool. OPOS is an optical sensor system for drum cutter developed and patented from Summagraphics. The AAT allows to contour-cut printed images on all kind of cut-plotters. Besides Europe, North America became the most important market for the EUROSYSTEMS software products.


CoCut MultiTool with an AutoCAD plug-in was integrated into the CoCut product range and EUROSYSTEMS became an authorized Autodesk developer. CoCut MultiTool can drive machines with multiple tools on different tool-heads direct from AutoCAD software. The powerful postprocessor guarantees a professional workflow of the different tools in one process. Besides the signmaking, screen-printing and visual communications industries EUROSYSTEMS S.à.r.l. could join new markets in the CAD area such as the textile-, leather- and packaging industries.


To provide the growing demand for the integration of cut-plotter into a professional print & cut workflow the Automatic Alignment Tool was continuously developed by EUROSYSTEMS. Especially the combination of the AAT with the optical recognition systems from the different plotter brands makes EUROSYSTEMS software a unique tool for the professional integration of cut-plotter into any kind of print & cut workflow.


EUROSYTEMS develops, out of the AAT, OptiScout a modular optical recognition system for multifunctional flatbed machines. OptiScout is a combination of the special EUROSYSTEMS software know-how in plug-in-, AAT- and postprocessor-technology with a camera system. Very soon the Swiss company Zünd, a worldwide leader in flatbed plotter technology, became a partner for OptiScout.


A complete OptiScout product range is launched by EUROSYSTEMS. Software products for design, nesting and laser engraving round off the OptiScout product range. More new products like OptiTRACE, an automatic tracing tool or further developments like the integration of barcode are on the way. Today companies such as Daimler-Chrysler, Shell, Lufthansa, Airbus, Boeing and Deutsche Telekom work with our software. More than 30,000 software products bearing the "EUROSYSTEMS" trademark are working on all continents - perhaps at your site soon.


The 'Workflow-Manager', a new product in the OptiScout product range, is launched. With the Workflow-Manager either an automatic or manual workflow control is possible. Since the release more than 250 OptiScout recognition systems are sold worldwide.
