Color management modules
Printing deep black colors is one of the biggest challenges, especially when it comes to textile, photography or backlit media. Designers usually work within the RBG color space while printers work in CMYK. RGBWorkflow allows digital printers to carry out print profiles in RGB, in order to produce more accurate colors and deeper blacks. Learn more
In textile and industrial printing applications such as ceramics, wood floors or bathroom tiles, new market trends make it necessary to go beyond what CMYK alone can achieve. Use CustomInkset to design your own ink configurations from scratch & discover new shades of printed colors! Learn more
PrintStandardVerifier allows you to carry out conformity checks of your printing processes in terms of color consistency. Meeting international standards for color consistency is essential when you print for large accounts— and PrintStandardVerifier embeds professional standards and specifications that are widely recognized across the graphic communication industry.

Cost management modules
No need to be a color expert or redo your ICC profiles to save on ink! Once enabled, InkPerformer automatically calculates a new color combination to decrease the amount of ink printed on the substrate. Reduce ink consumption by up to 35% without compromising color accuracy. Learn more
CostProof calculates job-related costs based on similar jobs printed in the past or based on the ripped data of your jobs. Learn more
Cut management modules
There is no need for a separate solution to manage your cutting operations! Use CutServer to streamline cutting operations (cut contours, cut marks) on your roll cutters. CutServer is recommended for roll cutters. Learn more
There is no need for a separate solution to manage your cutting operations! Use GrandCutServer to streamline cutting operations (cut contours, cut marks) on your flatbed cutters. GrandCutServer is recommended for flatbed cutters. Learn more
Perfect for cutting rectangular shapes at unrivaled speed, trimmers are the solution to speed up and scale up your production. Trim-O-Matik prepares your jobs for automatic trimmers. Learn more
Performance & automation modules
Ripping image files is a complex and power-hungry computation process. Take advantage of your computer’s full capacity to speed up ripping and printing times. The OpenCL™ technology allows CalderaRIP to process files with greater speed and efficiency. Learn more
Nexio adds a new level of automation to your printing processes by connecting CalderaRIP with third-party programs (webshops, CRM, ERP, MIS). This allows for more automated sequences, faster production times and advanced production reports. Learn more
