ErgoSoft was part of the “Mimaki School” in Krakow last week. This training cycle is organized by our certified reseller in Poland – SICO – and we are proud to be one of the official partners of this series of events.
The “Mimaki School” tours all Poland, addresses production specialists, graphic designers, marketers as well as managers in the digital printing industry and aims to raise the professional qualifications of the attendees, to exchange knowledge and skills between printer and software engineers, manufacturers, and professionals from Poland and Europe as well as media, art and science representatives.
ErgoSoft was giving a lecture to teach the participants what a RIP software is and why it’s beneficial to use our RIP for your color management and production workflow.
ErgoSoft RIP JobComposer – A universal Powerhouse for Digital Printing
That the ErgoSoft RIP JobComposer module represents the most flexible and feature rich job-layout tool in the RIP Software industry is widely known. The RIP Solution from ErgoSoft manages to combine established tools with new features like no other, creating a fitting solution for just about any application.
Add to that the ErgoSoft RIP “JobComposer Production”, containing the options “Step&Repeat” and “ColorCombine”, and you have a solution that is sure to delight any designer.
As can be seen in the following video, patterns are recolored, repeated, set into sewing patterns and printed in a flash- all without leaving the ErgoSoft RIP JobComposer.
Besides the masking features contained in the “JobComposer Production” package and the optionally available “Step&Repeat” function, the “ColorCombine” option plays a crucial role in this example.
This lean coloring tool impresses with a clever selection of base functions for efficient In-RIP coloring. Color separatered patterns with up to 32 color layers (Typical for many traditional printing industries) can be colored and arranged directly in the JobComposer and simulated into screenprinting patterns and gradation curves if needed. Reference patches of colors used for each patterns can be printed along with with the actual repeat at the press of a button. Regardless if it’s for patterning of designs, reproduction of conventionally printed materials or for a fully digital production, “ColorCombine” makes the ErgoSoft RIP JobComposer the definitive universal powerhouse and unleashes the advantages of Inkjet-technology, such as the incredibly fine color variations to their full potential.
During two days (August 25th and 26th, 2017), Hartwii Imaging Materials Co., Ltd. – certified ErgoSoft retail partner in China – opened up its experience center and hold a conference for its customers. This experience center aims to provide more professional support to the customers, especially for the ErgoSoft RIP software.
Our Asian support manager, Mr. Clarence Ng, attended the promotion conference and gave an introduction in our RIP to trainees from various industries, like e.g. photo studios, textile printing factories, paper manufacturers, printer factories etc. The conference organizer as well as all trainees joined an online chat group after the event and continue their discussion to improve their knowledge, understanding and skills in using the ErgoSoft RIP software. It was a successful experiment to build a platform for users from different areas who shared their experiences in using our RIP for their applications.
