Print perfect films every time from
an inkjet printer with T-RIP

Fast & Easy! Print with any slot, slot combination or all black!

T-RIP is a software RIP (raster image processor) designed to make an inexpensive inkjet printer create very accurate and dense film positives very similar to much more expensive imagesetters. And, it works with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw. It is ONLY a Windows based program and does not work on Mac although we are still testing using it under Windows emulation on a Mac. T-RIP works on Windows XP (with Service Pack 3), Vista and Windows 7. Whether you are a small shop with no more than 13" x 19" inch film needs or a large production shop with a 44" printer outputting a lot of films every day you need T-RIP.

T-RIP is based on the same technology and programming that we developed at U.S. Screen Print & Inkjet Technology with our very popular FastRIP. In fact, we are also offering upgrades from the popular FastRIP program for the defunct U.S. Screen Print.

Without a RIP an inkjet printer will not print halftone dots and will not lay down enough ink for a solid/dense/opaque film positive for screen burning. This is especially important when trying to burn small halftone dot.

T-RIP gives complete control over the halftone frequency/line count, dot angle, dot shape, and more. T-RIP includes registration targets, film labels, and has settings for a variety of output resolutions and ink deposits. If you want DENSE black films with great looking halftone dots, this is it.

The popular inkjet printer for screen printers is the Epson 1430. This printer prints 13" x 19" films and has become the new standard for output devices. And, the "street price" is only $299 (or less) from most online Epson dealers.

** A Note from Mike Fresener **

I have been producing separations as long as I can remember. It's been interesting to watch the evolution of the positive over the years. "In the beginning", we were using Rubylith and Ziptone Dots and hand cutting everything. This made for good positives that would burn solid screens with consistent burn times. Then we started using the Darkroom. The density of your positive would depend on the age of your chemistry. Old chemicals would produce somewhat transparent positives which would affect exposure times making it easy to under/over expose your screens resulting in more screen failure equating to press downtime. As the computer graphics evolved one would think exposure times would too. Everyone started using Laser Printers and Vellum Paper to produce their positives. You could see light right through any bold or dense area of your positives and the milky color of the Vellum caused people to Underexpose their screens to avoid burn through. This caused an even greater screen failure rate resulting in more press downtime. The added problem of thermally producing positives causes registration issues making it difficult to line up jobs properly adding even MORE press downtime and press downtime = money lost!

As inkjet printers evolved to a point where they could lay enough ink down to get a good enough opacity screenprinters started converting their darkrooms over to digital pre-press. The problem is that inkjet printers didn't have "postscript" and couldn't print halftone dots large enough to expose on your screens. The ink deposit still left something to be desired as well. It was better then a laser printer but not quite opaque enough. This is where RIP software comes in. You can get VERY dense, opaque black AND halftones in the 55/65 lpi range. This has allowed screenprinters to go back to a stable, consistent exposure time reducing screen failure at the sink! It also allows you to OVEREXPOSE slightly without getting the burn through that weak chemistry and vellum cause. This equates to a more thoroughly exposed emulsion that will hold up better reducing pin holes and screen breakdown (less press downtime) AND it makes reclaiming go easier as underexposed emulsion tends to bond to the mesh making reclaiming more difficult. We have come FULL CIRCLE with our positives and exposure times and experience less press down time allowing us to be more PROFITABLE! If you aren't using an Inkjet/RIP combo to produce your positives, YOU SHOULD BE!

Once unlocked the computer does not need to be online.
