Wasatch Renovates SoftRIP SP with New Tools for Flexo, Offset, and Screen Printing

Salt Lake City, UT ­ Wasatch has released a new SoftRIP SP, transformed with new tools for producing premium quality separations suitable for flexo and offset printing. The new features suite includes capabilities for linearizing press curves and producing 1-bit deep TIFF files. With these advances SoftRIP SP has the power to produce offset and flexo quality separations using imagesetting devices.

SoftRIP SP is the only inkjet printing RIP with certified moiré-free rosettes for process color separations. The new output to TIFF driver produces monochrome 1-bit TIFF files suitable for passing to imagesetters. This innovation extends Wasatch’s separations capabilities to the offset and flexography industries with the simplicity and price point associated with inkjet RIPs.

“These new features make SoftRIP SP a powerful and user friendly tool for film production,” says separations printing expert Dennis DiValerio, Prepress Product and Technical Support Manager at MacDermid Autotype Inc. “They are invaluable tools that help make SoftRIP SP our RIP of choice for printing screen and flexo separations.”

The new SoftRIP SP includes capabilities for modifying separations to compensate for the print conditions of the final output device. The Press Curve controls offer the power to linearize the press or to produce other press behaviors. With a single setting, the pre-defined curves produce separations for punching contrast or highlights on the press.

The calibration and linearization utility is compatible with the industry’s major densitometers. Capabilities are included for linearizing film positives or easily converting to negative linearizations for use with flexography processes.
