StudioRIP DTF 24/36/44 is a CTF (Computer to Film) system that uses an inkjet printer to produce films for the pre-press industry (screen printing, flexography, tampography). The used film is similar to the imagesetter film, but instead of the photosensitive emulsion it has an inkjet coating is able to absorb a large quantity of ink. The system obtains densities of DMax = 4.5 and line screens up to 150 lpi. The film is imported by StudioRIP Ltd.

The film doesn’t need processing, can be used right after printing.

The advantages of StudioRIP DTP compared to an imagesetter:

  • The imagesetters on the market are very old (starting from 2000 there are almost no imagesetters manufactured), while StudioRIP DTF is new and in warranty.
  • Imagsetter films need processing, while StudioRIP DTF films can be used right after printing.
  • The reliability is better due to the fact that it is a very simple system.
  • The operation is very simple (similar to using a desktop printer), no traning is necessary for the operator.
  • The maintenance is little and simple (basically the print head needs a regular check and cleaning if necessary, and the plate processor needs cleaning).
  • The typical problems of laser systems (the optical parts get dirty, the focus isn’t uniform on the film, the laser power decreases etc.) are impossible with StudioRIP DTP: the print head doesn’t change its properties neither in time or geometrically (the image quality is uniform across the film).
  • The system is compact, fits into a pre-press office corner.
  • The system can be used as a proofer (calibrated with spectrophotometer, the proofer license included in the price).
  • The system can be used as a generic color printer (banners, posters etc.)

Text quality Very difficult to distinguish from laser plates
similar or even better quality than plates made with film.
Halftone quality Very difficult to distinguish from laser plates
similar or even better quality than plates made with film.
Other quality related phenomenons the smallest halftone dot is of 35–40 microns (therefore shades under 5% use hybrid screening); these dots are very difficult to see with naked eye, but offer better printing stability
the uniformity of the dots isn’t perfect (similar to plates made with film, under the microscope a slight size and shape variation can be seen), causing slightly «noisier» halftones; on the final print this is almost impossible to distinguish from prints made with laser films though.
