Wasatch Computer Technology's SoftRIP TX has won SGIA's 2015 Product of the Year award in the category of "Roll-to-Roll Dye Sublimation on Textile for RIP Software".

SGIA’s team of digital imaging professionals evaluate and award exceptional products that are showcased at the expo. SoftRIP TX was showcased with Epson's SureColor® F9200 dye sublimation printer, which won Product of the Year in the "Roll-to-Roll Dye Sublimation on Textile" category.

“I’m thrilled to share this award with our users, who are constantly pushing the boundaries of dye sublimation printing. They have made this award possible for us,” said Mike Ware, President.

Wasatch SoftRIP TX’s features are designed specifically for digital textile printing and have all the functionality of SoftRIP. Users can control their dye sublimation printing process with a number of specialised tools. The Color Atlas Generator and the new Color Neighborhood Analyzer allow users to print a range of colour swatches on their target media and use SoftRIP’s Spot Color Replacement tool to enter RGB values for exact colour matching. SoftRIP's exclusive 16-bit rendering pipeline means colour subtleties and gradients in images are maintained, reproducing colour with the greatest level of intricacy for high-definition output.

At InPrint (Booth F27, 10-12 November 2015 in Munich) Onyx Graphics, Inc. will show how its RIP and colour management software can manage and automate consistent digital colour printing onto a wide range of substrates in the manufacturing process.

“ONYX software is a powerful colour management workflow and RIP software that plays an important role in streamlining the process of industrial production using inkjet technology,” says Bryan Manwaring, Onyx Graphics. “Managing digital printing onto a variety of substrates including wood, metal, textile, ceramics, plastics and more is our strength. We specialise in helping companies increase their manufacturing productivity and reduce their costs by giving them an easy-to-use system that takes a design file and puts it into production as seamlessly as possible to ensure they always achieve predictable output.”

ONYX works closely with hardware manufacturers and OEM’s globally to develop expert colour solutions tailored to meet their specific industrial printing needs. The company supports customers across multiple sectors, including: graphics, décor, fashion, biomedical, electronics and sports products. “Ensuring accurate colour is a critical part of many manufacturing processes. Get it right and everyone is happy – get it wrong and there can be significant implications in terms of cost and disappointed customers,” explains Bryan. “For example, we work with an online retailer that allows its customers to upload artwork to create various ultra-customized products. The company has integrated ONYX software into its manufacturing process to ensure the results are exactly what the customer expects.”

At InPrint, ONYX experts will provide advice and demonstrate ONYX 12, the next generation of the company’s workflow and RIP products that offer speed, performance, a simplified interface and advanced application tools to do more in less time.
