The Presstek DPM Pro 400 is an easy-to-use, fully automated, high resolution polyester plate CTP system. It is designed for use with small-format presses and supports plate widths up to 16.31" (414mm). It is faster, more economical to use, more environmentally friendly, and more compact than comparable choices. Featuring an advanced internal plate processor, it offers automation, speed, and a low cost of operation. Digital platemaking with a DPM Pro 400 makes it possible to handle more jobs with increased efficiency and precision. There are no intermediate steps required, so process variables in platemaking are significantly reduced.
The DPM Pro 400 requires little time to produce press-ready plates. Simply load the MEGAPRO material and the system operates with a minimum of operator intervention. It receives 1-bit TIFF files from your RIP, then images, processes, and sizes your plates, all in one streamlined automatic operation.
The processor is built-in, self-contained and highly efficient. Presstek MEGAPRO plates and MEGAPRO LC chemistry work as an optimized system to deliver stable, repeatable, and accurate plate development. An integrated cutter sizes plates precisely, so there’s no wasted plate material. You go directly from desktop to press-ready plates in one automated procedure. An optional punching system completes your CTP workflow.
Because it is fully automated, the DPM Pro 400 becomes an integral part of your digital workflow, freeing prepress personnel to perform other tasks and work more productively. Simplified platemaking, fast turnaround time, and high throughput of plates enable you to process more jobs and better respond to short lead times.
