RIPs for more than one solution from a single image to running the press
Double production use One-Pass on your DTG brand printer, saving time and money
Printing on colored or black garments, normally requires
two passes, first a pass for white ink, then a color ink pass.
your print time in half by printing the white
and color inks simultaneously. PowerRIP One-Pass maintains white density and color saturation
equal to two pass printing.
Two pass only does 10 shirts per hour at 1440x1440, while
One-pass produces 20 shirts per hour, doubling
Times for 1440x720 are 2x faster up to 40 sph
Save time with PowerRIP DTG RIPPRO One-Pass
Reduce ink cost, control density and contrast
PowerRIP RIPPRO offers ink density and contrast controls. These advanced controls adjust vignetted fade outs within the RIP, without having to return to Photoshop. The same controls can increase or reduce white and color densities. Saving ink cost while maintaining saturation.
One-Pass 3 min
Color Pass 3 min
White Pass 3 min

PowerRIP's superior ink control makes better film positives
Until you see PowerRIP ScreenPrint’s output you do not know how much better your film density can be. Density is higher, the type is sharper and the halftone dots are better defined. PowerRIP’s better ink control improves quality. Too much ink produces ink puddles, not enough ink and the film is too light and making it harder to expose a screen. When film is too light dot shapes and fine line detail are burnt away when the screen is exposed. You need the highest density possible to burn a good screen.
PowerRIP obtains the highest density possible in the industry, by using 255 different control steps for each ink channel. PowerRIP has an easy to use quick set slider for each ink channel going from 0% to 100% in precise 4 tenths of a percent (0.4%) increments. AccuRIP’s Black Pearl system only offers 15 ink levels. PowerRIP users, with 255 settings, have more control over film density.
Standard films require between 80% to 100% ink coverage to obtain optimum density. AccuRIP only offers four possible ink settings in this critical density range making it difficult to get the best density, AccuRIP ink levels of 12=80%, 13=82%, 14=90%, and 15=100% Max. These uneven steps allow large gaps in ink adjustment control.
No large density gaps with PowerRIP, just better precision. PowerRIP ScreenPrint allows 52 precise settings in the critical density range, between 80% and 100% (255 settings per ink channel). PowerRIP settings move in 4 tenths of a percent from 80% to 100%. Freedom to choose the maximum ink density you need.
Freedom in setting up your inks. PowerRIP can run all black ink channels or use Epson inks. A PowerRIP feature with Epson's color inks, is creating a better UV light blocking image on film, by adding a slight amount of magenta and yellow colors. And remember with PowerRIP you can always preview an image before you print film.
These test results are based on measuring the output from the RIPs being compared, using an Epson Stylus Pro 4880 and multiple dots sizes.
These basic results will hold true for any Epson inkjet printer using 3 spot sizes, like an Epson Artisan 1430 or L1800.

When printing without black Ink on black cotton, you use CMY and white ink. You can create the white layer automatically or customize it. Fades can be adjusted with density, contrast, vignette and add white under black options. Colored inks adhere better to white than pretreat. RIPPRO enables you to increase white under black or shadow areas where normally there is less white. More white under color improves a shirt's wash ability. You want your printed shirts to look great before and after washing.
Three different levels of color saturation are built in for color inks and applied automatically.
No need any longer to open an image in Photoshop to boost color saturation before printing

Above white was generated by selecting the image and clicking create. Options chosen were vignette that clips the color to print only where white exists and a threshold of at least 4% white ink was set. Some of the darkest color shades were clipped off, not bad. Preview shown to the right. Without a removal value, white fades to zero and some colors fade to a black background with less than 1% white
Another approach is to increase the white in the under base. Vignette was still chosen, but no removal value was set. Rather than setting a minimum white value at 4%. The "Density" value of white was increased in the image. You can see the additional white in the shadow areas around the guitar. The preview shows more of the darkest smoke with extra white to improve color ink adhesion on pretreat.
The White Layer
DTG RIP PRO v06 special edition for the Epson SCF2000 prints on black material without black ink, on colored cotton with CMYK and white inks, and white cotton. There are even four basic settings to print pictures or type using only white ink, we offer a black ink only media print setting. Multiple color saturation settings with the most control anywhere of the white ink layer are all part of the tool set. Shown below are options for White Creation, Increased color saturation, and highlight white.
Original Image Our Normal
Our Plus Saturation up 20%
Our Extra Saturation up 40%
No need to print a complete second pass of the entire white layer to get whites to pop use a highlight white
