T-RIP Film Output Features

T-RIP version 2.0

T-RIP is a feature rich program that helps improve productivity and quality when outputting films for screen making. If you have been using a laser printer and vellum, or an inkjet printer without a rip, then you know the limitations. Vellum paper can shrink and not hold register – and if trying to output halftone dots – the dots are very weak and burn through when trying to hold them on a screen. If you are using an inkjet printer without a rip then you are not able to get halftone dots and in most cases the ink deposit is not dense.

Control the Maintenance Functions of Printer

You don't need to leave T-RIP to do head cleanings, nozzle checks, ink level checks or other maintenance functions. These can all be done right from within T-RIP.

Easily Re-Print Old Jobs

With T-RIP you can easily archive jobs and simply call them up again for new film output.

Determine Ink Costs

With our costing feature you can accurately determine how much it costs to print a film.



Print Crop Marks and Labels

You can easily print crop marks and labels and comments on the films. You can specify where the crop marks are placed.



Complete Ink Control

With T-RIP you have complete control over the amount of ink you print. There is a wide range of good, poor and just plain bad clear inkjet film on the market. Some have very weak inkjet ink receptive coatings and they require more and sometimes even less ink in order to make a good film. With T-RIP you have the ability to print in Single Density, Double Density, and Triple Density mode and at a variety of resolutions and speeds. This means you have great flexibility when printing films.


Print From More Than One Black Slot

T-RIP allows you to use a bulk ink system and print black ink from all the slots. This can help minimize ink waste. You can also print from just the black slot and put inkjet cleaning fluid in the rest of the slots of a bulk printing system. T-RIP 2.0 has much better control and you can now tell T-RIP exactly how much black to print from each slot so you don't have wet films!  


Preview the Final Seps

One feature most other RIPs do not have is the ability to preview the image BEFORE you send the file to the printer. This allows you to see the exact placement on the film and to verify that you have the correct film size selected. And, you can actually view the exact halftoned file that is sent to the printer. Zoom in on the halftones and check the quality. The is very cool!   


Easily Print From Your Favorite Graphic Program

Printing with T-RIP is easy. Simply print to your "T-RIP" printer just like you would any other print job. In fact, even though you can preview the image in T-RIP and perform many of the following functions, you can also simply click print and walk away while your films print!
