Hurst Graphics has introduced the SmartPlate Pak, a total CTP system, to facilitate the conversion to digital workflow. The plate itself is a doubled-sided, clay-coated, polyester plate capable of printing up to 20,000 impressions per side at up to 133 line screen. Standard components for the system include an HP LaserJet 5100 series printer; the 1175 SmartPlate Deletion Pen; one gallon of 390 SmartPlate Fountain Solution; one pint each of 392 SmartPlate Etch, 394 SmartPlate Prep, and 396 Clean Print Fountain Additive; a sample pack of Platestrips; 32 MB Kingston printer memory; and one Ultraprecise replacement toner cartridge. The system carries a three year NBD HP extended warranty, an annual SmartPlate CTP technical support agreement, and phone installation of the SmartPlate Pak. Users may upgrade to 32MB printer memory and a PPE plate punch.
