Inca Digital Introduces Caldera Grandrip+

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Inca Digital Printers announces the immediate availability of the Caldera GrandRIP+ for use with its range of UV wide-format, flat-bed printers, including the Inca Spyder and Onset ranges as well as older Inca products such as the Turbo.

The Caldera GrandRIP+ is a fast, flexible and powerful production workflow exclusively designed to drive wide and extra-wide format printers and print-to-cut equipment. It supports the latest advances in color management, spot color matching, screening techniques and a host of finishing-orientated features such as tiling, nesting, eyelet positioning and the addition of stitching and folding marks.

“We continually evaluate and approve a variety of software solutions in order to give Inca users’ maximum choice and the flexibility to optimize the performance of their Inca printers,” says Heather Kendle, Inca Sales and Marketing Director. “Caldera has a strong and established reputation as a RIP supplier to the wide-format sector and one of the decision factors was the ability to run the software on a Mac or Linux operating system. We have worked closely with them to develop drivers specifically for our range of Inca printers in order to ensure the seamless compatibility, reliability and maximum productivity that Inca customers expect.”

“Inca is a leading wide-format manufacturer and we are very pleased that they recognize the power of our production solutions,” says Valery de March, Caldera OEM Director. “GrandRIP+, featuring our unique APPE (Adobe PDF Print Engine) implementation in a wide format production RIP, is now fully operational and optimized for every Inca printer model to provide significant productivity and quality benefits.”

The Caldera GrandRIP+ supports a wide range of input file formats including PostScript and PDF, in addition to standard image file formats. Support for ICC profiles together with sophisticated pre-flight and preview of jobs enables accurate ‘no surprises’ printing, including automatic detection and simulation of spot colors based on media profiles. Advanced layout, tiling, step-and-repeat and nesting features optimize output of very large, mixed or repeating jobs while minimizing processing time and use of ink and media. For sign-making applications these features, enable rapid and efficient assembly and installation.

The Caldera GrandRIP+ is the latest of the Inca portfolio of RIP solutions available for its wide format digital flat-bed inkjet printers. For more details about the Inca-compatible RIPs designed to meet a variety of budgets and production requirements, please contact the Inca Applications Team or contact Fujifilm, the exclusive global distributor of Inca flatbed printers.
