MUTOH Clear Tone

MUTOH's original halftone technology is optimized to MUTOH printers to deliver the best skin tones with beautifully smooth gradations and less variation in colour density. Achieve a flawless finish even when using a standard CMYK configuration.

Accurately Process PDF Transparencies

Often RIPs can struggle to handle PDF files that contain transparencies. This can lead to wasted time 'fixing' files and wasted media discovering the file didn't print correctly. VerteLith however can accurately reproduce the transparencies in the PDF file so what you see on screen is what you get in print, no waste.

RIP Preview Before You Print

Preview the actual printing dots on screen after ripping minimising unnecessary printing errors.

Check if the colours are generated as intended. Eg magenta contaminating yellow.

Soft Proof

Soft proof preview users the monitor profile and printer profile to simulate onscreen a close representation of the final printed result.

*A properly calibrated monitor is required. Perfect colour is not guaranteed.

Workflow Efficiency

Automated layout processing and printing with Multi-page PDFs. Remove the need to manually set often-used print conditions on every job. Set print and layout settings to hot folders to enable quick and easy output and production of single document multi-page PDFs.

Simple Jig Creation

Using a jig is essential with flatbed printing for repeatable and accurate laying out of object blanks such as phone covers, name badges, woodblocks, etc however, machined jigs can be expensive. With VerteLith MUTOH's XPJ-461/661UF printers can print 2.5D jigs, fast, effective, and cost-efficient.
