CADlink announces all-inclusive colour management, production workflow software for Brotherâ„¢ GTX direct to garment printer.

Digital Factory Apparel Brother Edition maximises the exceptional throughput capabilities as well as the high fidelity colour output that the newly released Brother™ GTX printer is designed for.

The custom print driver as well as specially created colour profile sets for white, black and coloured garments are all available in the currently shipping Digital Factory Apparel Brother Edition™ Version 3 software product. The software extends colour gamut and is able to reproduce a much greater colour range than standard print drivers.

“Digital Factory Apparel Brother Edition™ is much more than RIP software”, states Michael Chramtchenko, CADlink Technology Director of Marketing, “No other RIP software product or driver-based print solution offers such advanced colour management controls as well as pre-production workflow and image preparation tools. Most importantly, these tools can all be found in a single, easy-to-use package that addresses all of the production requirements that Brother™ DTG printer users may have.”

The software features an assortment of production automation features including the ink and time saving “knock me out” tools that automatically remove specific design colours that match garment colours eliminating the need for ink to be printed in those areas. Also included is advanced handling of white ink management that not only saves a great deal on white ink costs but also increases the image print quality and feel. Users can also select and create pre-defined print queues that are based on colour or type of garment, resolution requirements as well as preferred colour printing requirements--- realistic or vibrant. These features provide a great deal of printing options as well as greatly increasing productivity and reducing potential production errors.

The currently shipping version also supports existing GT-3 Series Brother™ printers providing existing Brother™ users who purchase the new GTX printer the ability to use a single software package to print to both machines. Existing Digital Factory Apparel users can add on the new GTX printer package for a small fee.
