Mutoh Europe releases two house rip solutions: "Grip" and "Grip+"

Belgium-based wide-format inkjet printer and cutting plotter manufacturer Mutoh Europe nv has announced the availability of two "House RIP" solutions, called Grip and Grip+, as an addition to its existing range of Mutoh Edition RIP software. The new Grip and Grip+ solutions for PC and MAC users have been developed by Mutoh Europe in cooperation with the France based RIP developer Caldera Graphics. The new RIP software has been specifically tuned to Mutoh's entire wide format digital printer and sign cutting plotter portfolio.

Grip is an integrated desktop print solution that provides in an easy interface all that is needed to drive a Mutoh large format printer.

Grip has a fast preview to let the user check his file. Before printing, the user can swiftly crop, rotate, resize or enhance colours. Whether used for processing PostScript, PDF or raster files, Grip delivers high quality output with its powerful ICC compliant rip engine. To optimise production, Grip also includes a step and repeat function as well as automatic nesting to optimise media usage. Grip comes standard with a CostProof module that will allow the user to estimate printing costs.

Grip+ is a full featured production workflow solution for large format Print and Print-to-Cut, packed with intuitive and sophisticated features to get the best from a Mutoh printer.

Grip+ is entirely modular and scalable to meet future production needs. Next to the features of Grip, Grip+ also provides full drag and drop functionality, spot colour matching, real time output simulation, a layout tool, tiling and multi-printer spooling for time optimization.

For print-to-cut applications, Grip+ can detect and extract contour data intended for contour cutting and can generate reference bar codes on the print data. To complete the print and cut workflow, after completing the printing process, Grip+ can drive Mutoh's SC-PRO and Ultima cutting plotters to create full-colour stickers and signs.
