Three new software solutions are now available from Mimaki.
Mimaki is leading the way with innovative and easy to use software solutions for colour management. Mimaki Profile Master 3, Rasterlink6 version 5.0 and Artista Textile Color Collection are designed to aid printers in creating accurate colour across various media and devices.
Let’s take a look at the new software available:
Colour matching made quicker and easier with Mimaki Profile Master 3
Mimaki Profile Master 3 enables the user to colour match artwork across different media types and printers. No specialist colour knowledge is needed in order to use the software and print colour is consistent as it is measured with the colorimeter during the printer calibration process.
Mimaki Rasterlink 6 now includes full PANTONE matching capabilities
Mimaki’s very own RIP software now includes PANTONE colour collection for colour matching. Pantone colours are detected automatically within the print file and converted into print ready colour for faster colour matching. This is turn reduces waste and saves you time.
In addition to the Pantone colour collection, it is also now possible to create cut marks for Fotoba cutters. Cut marks can be placed within the Rasterlink6 window without opening or needing any other software.
Artista Textile Colour Collection for dye sublimation
Textile printing is moving towards digital production as manufacturers look to ways to bring items faster to market as well as keep up with evolving trends. Colour consistency is key and the Artista Textile Colour Collection by Mimaki will allow for textile and apparel manufacturers to achieve the correct colour with minimum waste.
The collection includes 520 colours for sublimation printing including fluorescent inks, and is designed for use with the Mimaki TS300P-1800 textile printer with dye sublimation inks. Colour swatches are specified in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW and a palette file printed on a Mimaki printer using Rasterlink6 or TxLink3 RIP software. The result also includes detailed information about profiles and settings to be used.
Exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services Ltd, the company’s National Sales Manager – Textile & Apparel, Stephen Woodall comments,
“Controlling colour, including the new fluorescent shades throughout the design and print process is a vital tool in delivering quality printed textiles. Mimaki’s focus on streamlining that is of significant benefit to our end users.”
Mimaki states its objective with these three new software packages is to bring to market solutions that ease production for its users along with improving profitability.
