Ripping and Calibration

Get Prinected:

  • You can process PostScript and PDF files directly without converting them.
  • The plate and proof are output using the same RIP for the best possible match.
  • Presetting data is forwarded to the pressroom and postpress for fast make-ready processes.
Speed up platesetting with reliable, automated processes.

On your marks, get set, image. Speed and precision are crucial aspects of print plate production. Here too, the more automated your processes, the faster and more reliable they become. The raster image processor (RIP) converts the layout data for your print job into high-resolution screen dots that can then be output on platesetters, proofers or the digital press.

The Prinect RIP is based on Adobe Standard and works with the Adobe PDF Print Engine. The special thing about this process is that you can rip PDF documents directly without first converting to PostScript. The PDF documents are processed correctly with the transparencies, which avoids errors during proof and plate output.

The all-in-one solution
Prinect uses a single RIP for both proof and plate, thereby ensuring integrated color management and identical output results throughout your print shop workflow. In addition to being used for platesetting, the Prinect RIP links prepress with downstream production sections by forwarding digital data. For example, ink coverage values from the RIP are used to create ink presetting data for presses, and folding and cutting marks to preset postpress machines. This digital prepress data paves the way for quick make-ready processes.
