Digital front-end technology provider Fiery (formerly part of EFI) has released the latest version of its Digital Factory RIP software, aimed at making it easier for wide format printers to create personalised, customised, and other speciality production products with “perfect colour accuracy”.
Digital Factory v11.1 is compatible with ‘virtually’ all direct-to film (DTF), Direct-to Garment (DTG), Sublimation, UV and Toner Transfer devices, as well as wide-format printing and cutting devices.
Fiery claims’ new capabilities include: improved navigation, layout and usability with a new interface. Queue groups, for instance, can be created by a single click and drag-and-drop features. This allows both queues and group tabs be quickly reordered to improve organisation and layout.
Fiery Digital Factory also offers true shape nesting. This feature allows you to nest print and cut design more efficiently, while reducing the amount of material used.
It is claimed that the new icons, menu settings, and image scale will allow operators to easily see feedback from production and what’s been processed.
According to John Henze is the vice president for sales and marketing of Fiery. “Customers expect quality, accuracy, and speed when it comes to direct-to-film and specialty print applications, and no other software RIP combines colour accuracy with device support like Digital Factory.
“Collaborating with our extensive customer base, we developed a next-generation interface with the user in mind. With this latest update to Digital Factory, businesses of all sizes can quickly find the right tools and dial in the perfect settings to achieve efficient, high-volume production with the highest possible quality,” he says.
