Meteor Inkjet, the leading independent supplier of electronics and software to drive industrial inkjet printheads launches MetCal, software that dramatically improves the print quality of single-pass systems.
Further enhancing Meteor’s software portfolio, MetCal solves some of the biggest challenges faced by single-pass inkjet, particularly across the web. MetCal runs Meteor’s innovative new nozzle-out compensation technology and automates the usage of PrintFlat™, a ground-breaking tool that creates a unique calibration screen for each individual printer and works together with an embedded version of ScreenPro™ to remove repeatable artefacts due to variations in performance within a printhead and in the stitch area between printheads.
Clive Ayling, Meteor’s Managing Director comments, “MetCal addresses long-standing industry issues associated with single-pass printing such as single pixel streaks caused by clogged or failed nozzles, banding due to printhead stitching issues, and streaking or mottling on various substrate types. Customers can now benefit from straightforward printer calibration and dramatic print quality improvement, all integrated into a neat Meteor package.”
MetCal is available now for any system using Meteor electronics.
Jonathan Wilson from Meteor Inkjet will present “In pursuit of the perfect print: Nozzle out detection and compensation” during TheIJC in Chicago on 22-23 May 2019.
