Presstek Dimension 400 Computer to Plate System w/ Anthem Plate Washer
Computer to Plate System Description
Presstek products are a smarter way to print. Presstek has revolutionized printing by making faster throughput, higher quality, and lower cost a reality for commercial printers worldwide. Presstek thermal imaging and no-process plates drive the industry’s leading DI® presses, while also delivering the highest efficiencies possible from CTP workflow—saving time and money while providing distinct prepress and press room advantages over conventional and other CTP plates. And, by eliminating chemistry and waste materials from the platemaking process, Presstek CTP significantly reduces the environmental impact of your operation. Dimension® platesetters, with Presstek chemistryfree and no-process CTP plates bring many of the advantages of Presstek DI to printers using conventional offset presses, resulting in increased plate production and improved pressroom operation. That’s a high yield on your investment.
Computer to Plate System Features
Handling and imaging plates in normal room lighting eliminates the costs and special provisions for safe-light and darkroom conditions.
Presstek CTP is chemistry-free. Besides eliminating processing chemistry, Presstek CTP plates require no gumming, baking, or special cleaning fluids.
Consistency and repeatability
Presstek thermal CTP produces the highest quality output, free of the inconsistencies in image quality associated with emulsion variances, processor condition, chemical aging, exposure problems, and environmental changes.
Low impact installation
Freedom from chemical processing and baking, the compact size of Dimension platesetters, and operation in normal room conditions allow Presstek CTP to fit any plant layout.
Presstek CTP systems are designed for maximum ease-of-use. Requiring far fewer steps to produce plates, your entire platemaking operation is streamlined.
Lower cost ownership
Presstek CTP lowers costs in the short-run, and in the long-run. The savings in time, materials and labor mean lower overhead in your platemaking operations. And, from imaging heads to plates, the reliability and performance of Presstek thermal imaging products are proven in thousands of CTP installations and direct-to-press imaging applications with the world’s leading press manufacturers. More Presstek thermal imaging heads are installed worldwide than any other thermal imaging device.
