Producer of wide format inkjet printers Mimaki USA has launched RasterLink6 version 5.0 RIP software, whose features include Pantone colour libraries and colour replacement via spectrophotometer measurements.

According to the Japan headquartered company, the RasterLink6 RIP software offers ease-of-use combined with powerful tools delivering enhanced image quality, colour and optimised output.

“It drives the entire range of Mimaki inkjet printers including roll-based and flatbed; eco-solvent, latex, UV-LED, solvent UV and dedicated textile solutions,” it said.

This version includes the Pantone + Solid Coated as well as Solid Uncoated colour libraries under which spot colours in design files are automatically detected and converted to the most accurate CMYK build.

“The Adobe Illustrator compatible DIC colour collection and Mimaki original colour collections, including metallics, have been added to the preset library as well,” Mimaki USA added.

RasterLink6 version 5.0 also eliminates the requirement for special colour software by enabling the use of a spectrophotometer to directly measure colour patches, or samples to be used as replacement colours.

In addition, frequently used colours can be stored in the colour collection, enabling more accurate colour reproduction while reducing the time and cost incurred in colour matching.

Also included is the ability to create FOTOBA cut marks directly within the Rasterlink6 operation window.

“This new functionality streamlines production by allowing operators to create cropmarks while in the RIP without the need for additional design software,” the company explained.

“These marks can be used with FOTOBA cutters for post print finishing and also support copying, layout arrangement and tiling,” it observed. (AR)
