A Hundred Shirts per Hour
Using Wasatch SoftRIP's Automation Option to implement a "barcode pull" workflow, Epson America recently demostrated production of one hundred t-shirts per hour, with two SureColor F3070 Direct-To-Garment printers.
This was done with a basic Wasatch subscription plus premium driver package and Automation Option, a subscription with a total price of $113 per month. A Wasatch Python script was slightly customized to create the workflow.
The Wasatch Automation Option enables high-volume producers to increase productivity and eliminate errors.
Any active business will have existing processes for handling orders and artwork. In order to use automation, your Wasatch system must be be able to access your orders and artwork. Integration with your existing business processes is done through the Wasatch API, which is accessible via popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Node JS, and Ruby. Sample source code demonstrates a variety of applications, using Wasatch SoftRIP's embedded Python interpreter.
For "barcode pull" in the Direct-To-Garment market, Wasatch has produced a generic script that uses ".csv" files to connect with orders and artwork. This Python script is open source, and designed to be easy to edit. For many users, no customization is needed, and for others, minor customization has been quick and simple.
With a Wasatch subscription you always have access to the latest revisions, newest features and device support, and unlimited access to the Wasatch service team. It is a low cost way to preserve your workflow and color when updating and adding new devices.
When updating your existing license, you have the option of running with your existing USB copy protection. This can reduce, or in some cases eliminate any need to connect to the Internet.
Alternatively, if you can connect to the Internet just once per week, you can start a cloud license that is assigned to your computer with no copy protection device at all. Only a brief connection is needed.
Starting at $49 per month, Wasatch subscriptions are a low-cost and low-risk option that you can choose to continue or cancel at any time. We hope you'll never want to cancel, but if you do, you can cancel any subscription at the press of a button.
You can even install a subscription alongside your permanent copy of Wasatch SoftRIP, run it for a month, and cancel if you feel the benefit was not enough for you. We think you'll discover a big benefit.
