Mutoh has announced the release of a dedicated RIP software solution for its UV-LED direct to object flatbed production printers, called Digital Factory UV – Mutoh Edition.
Developed by CADlink Technology Corporation, this new RIP solution has been specifically tailored to the ValueJet 426UF A3+ size and ValueJet 626UF A2 size six colour (C,M,Y,K, clear and white) UV-LED flatbed printer models.
The RIP includes a dedicated feature set addressing the production workflow requirements inherent to UV digital direct to object print technology. Additionally, the software also offers a dramatically simplified pre-production workflow to allow graphic designers and printer operators to efficiently and correctly work with white and clear inks.
‘We are very pleased to partner with CADlink for our desktop UV flatbed production printers,’ said Kenji Yasuhara, Mutoh Europe’s managing director. ‘Digital direct to object printing offers many new business opportunities, but has very specific workflow requirements. Especially when commonly using white and clear inks, new complexities arise for graphics designers and printer users. Digital Factory UV – Mutoh Edition addresses these complexities in a smart and straightforward way. The result is a dramatic simplification and shortening of both the design and the production workflow, allowing Mutoh UV flatbed printer users to shorten their return on investment and increase their production.’
