AB Dick DPM 2340 Computer to Plate System w/ Rip Computer
Computer to Plate System Description
Digital PlateMaster (DPM) line of computer-to-plate systems enable printers to achieve high quality and fast turnaround at reduced costs. Many now find themselves competing successfully in the production of high quality color work.
Convenient and easy to use, this digital platemaking technology allows you to handle more jobs with increased efficiency and precision. There are no intermediate stages, as when using film, so you get high quality press-ready materials without the hassle and expense of masking materials and conventional stripping.
The DPM2340 includes Printers RIP – a unique software feature for plate positioning. Plate size and gripper margin set-ups are included to ensure perfectly imaged and positioned plates time after time. Plus, a Calibration Manager is used to fine tune the output to suit the individual characteristics of each printing press in your shop.
With the DPM2340 you also have the option of producing film without compromising the high dot quality, accuracy or repeatability. This added flexibility allows you to create film for larger presses, longer print runs or special customer requests. The market leader in small-format digital prepress, ABDick Company has successfully installed over 3,000 DPM systems.
