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’s new features include improved usability, organization and layout with a user-friendly interface and clear navigation. Queue Groups can be created now with just a click of an icon, and with drag and drops, so that both the queues or tabs for groups are easily reordered.
Fiery Digital Factory offers true shape nesting. This allows for more efficient nesting of print and cut designs and reduces material consumption.
It is claimed that the new icons, menu settings, and image sizing will allow operators to easily see what has been processed and feedback on production.
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.
