Mimaki USA, Suwanee, Ga., a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, has announced its SMART (School of Mimaki Application and Resource Training) course schedule for RasterLink6 RIP software. The program is designed to help users obtain maximum benefit of the features in RasterLink6 RIP software to drive a variety of Mimaki printers.

RasterLink6 RIP software is the company’s standard RIP that is bundled with all Mimaki equipment, including the Mimaki JV400 Series latex printers, suited for the sign and vehicle graphics, exhibition and events, retail POS, interior decor and soft signage markets. The new Mimaki 500 Series textile and industrial UV-cure LED flatbed printers are all supported by RasterLink6 software.

The software offers intuitive icons for easy option selection, a single-window approach to selection of all options, and the ability to monitor printing progress from the main screen. This version includes the Mimaki Profile Master II feature, which provides the ability to simulate color printing in Adobe® Illustrator® and Adobe Photoshop® software without the need to create an actual print, saving time and money in the design and production process.
