eLab Pro Complete, scalable, customisable RIP solution for Industrial Inkjet applications
Screening An embedded implementation of ScreenPro, a multi-level screening engine that corrects inkjet print imperfections such as streaking or mottling at ultra-high speed
MetCal

Wizard-driven software that runs Meteor’s exclusive nozzle-out compensation technologies, NozzleFix and NozzleMask; and automates the use of PrintFlat.

  • NozzleFix for single-pass or scanning systems eliminates single pixel steaks from clogged or failed nozzles by using good nozzles to counteract poorly performing adjacent nozzles.
  • NozzleMask significantly improves scanning system throughput by concealing undesirable effects of missing nozzles, thus requiring fewer passes to achieve high print quality.
  • PrintFlat is a powerful tool which creates a unique calibration screen for each individual printer and works together with ScreenPro to remove repeatable artefacts due to variations in performance within a printhead, in the stitch area between printheads, or from wear on the printheads.
