Added useful functions
Parallel RIP and load balancing functions make production more efficient.
The RIP process for multiple pieces of print data can be performed in parallel. In addition, thanks to the load balancing function for print jobs, jobs can be assigned to printers automatically, allowing efficient production when multiple printers are connected (*).
*Additional printer licenses corresponding to the number of connected printers are required.
Parallel RIP function
RIP processes can be performed in parallel, making production that uses multiple printers efficient.
The parallel processing capability can handle up to 8 jobs.
Load balancing function
Automatically allocates* print jobs to multiple units of same printer model.
* Round robin method. Identical printers / identical ink-set printers
A 16-bit rendering realizes beautiful gradation expression.
Rendering upgraded from 8bit to 16bit enables more beautiful gradation expression.
* An 8-bit rendering is used depending on the file format or color space.
Simple operation for pagination to match the task attained by using multiple pagination algorithm.
[Strengthened color re-creation function]
Assignment of feature color to spot channel
It is possible to allot arbitrary Spot color and Named color to spot channels of TIFF and PSD files created by Photoshop.
The color allocation results are viewable on the TxLink4 preview.
Variable print function tailored to applications for apparel is provided.
Variable data such as uniform numbers and player names can be directly imported from CSV file to create print jobs. Text can also be processed using methods such as text outline fills and arched text layout.
Image mask function
Masking can be performed with TxLink4 alone without clipping mask by use of Illustrator or similar software.
Rotation, inversion, and aspect-ratio change of masked images, and continuous masking to long-sized images, are also possible.
Useful functions succeeded from TxLink3
The TxLink3 can replace the colors used in a range of image data formats, including raster, vector, CMYK, and RGB. The target color is represented by specifying the color and lab values. Color patches on the chart can also be used as the target color.
Changing the color to the target color
This function is useful if the printed color differs from the target color. The color data can be replaced to reproduce the target color.
Print Similar Colors
This function allows you to find appropriate color values for the target color. A similar color chart can be printed using the“ Print Similar Colors” tool in the“ Swatch Books” and“ Named Colors” dialog boxes.
Similar color chart
Select the most similar color patch and enter color values displayed under the patch.
Color replacement on raster data broadens the range of colors
Color replacement is critical for textile printing. The TxLink3 offers simple color replacements on raster and vector data as well as the ability to produce different color patterns. Various color replacement functions can represent desired colors.
Workflow of color replacement
Step and repeat
One large seamless pattern can be created from smaller image data. Furthermore, several shifting and mirroring patterns are provided to add design variation.
In TxLink4 environment, PSD, PNG, JPEG, EPS, PS, PDF, and AI have also become available in addition to TIFF and BMP.
Multicolor profile creation
A multicolor profile for CMYK and spot colors (blue, red, orange, and other colors) can be created. The profile is created automatically by following the instructions of the wizard. Operators only have to print and measure* the color chart.
* Before measuring the color, please fix the color by heating. A colorimeter is not a standard feature of TxLink3.
A wide RGB gamut can be represented
Spot color broadens the color gamut range and produces smooth print results.
Multicolor profile creation procedures
Color combine [Exclusive feature for the professional version]
This function assigns color to each separated image data set* and combines them into a single image data set. Colors can be assigned from color values, the swatch book, and measured colors. The stacking order of layers is easily changed.
Multi-channel PSD is also available in TxLink4 as well as separation TIFF.
* Image data that is separately created for each color.
