Tech8 Van

Tech8, the technical support and spares provider for the wide format printing industry, is distributing Wasatch SoftRIP Version 7.  The new version – which Wasatch says is the ‘fastest build of Wasatch SoftRIP ever released' – allows users to create, edit, delete, and manage thousands of unique jobs every day.

On the new version, which is available with immediate effect, Justin Atkinson, Business Development Manager at Tech8, comments, “Although SoftRIP has been sold for digital narrow-web label printing for several years; Version 7.0 is the first release to specifically address converting. Users will find support for rotary cutting equipment and enhanced die cutting features for bleeds and round corners on digital cutters.”

He continues, “Any RIP upgrade is user-driven and based on demand for new functionality and improved performance.  That’s why Wasatch SoftRIP Version 7.0 supports industrial printing, not only with speed, but also with powerful system integration tools.  The new XML-based interface makes it possible for system integrators and sophisticated users to control Wasatch SoftRIP via HTML and JavaScript running entirely in a web browser, or via customised network software or XML hot folders.”

“Many printers forget the importance of the RIP in the print process and simply stick to what they are used to.  It is easy to forget the simple fact that if you improve performance then you have more time to dedicate to focus on other aspects of your business.  This is the reason we’re offering Version 7 of Wasatch SoftRIP and providing our customers with the option of competitively-priced upgrades,” he concludes.

Wasatch has also announced Version 2.0 release of Wasatch Variable Data Printing (VDP) which introduces new technologies such as variable QR Codes and special rendering features essential to barcode print quality.  VDP 2.0's new Fast Layout tool makes generation of 10,000 variable labels easy and automated.
