Presstek, Inc. (Booth #2600) is demonstrating its CTP solutions, ranging from two-page polyester to fully automated four-page metal options. The solutions on display include Presstek’s Dimension Pro 400, Vector FL52, and DPM Pro 400. Presstek will also feature its chemistry-free Aurora EXP, Anthem Pro and Freedom Pro plates, along with Aeon, a high resolution, no preheat thermal plate. Aeon offers runs of up to 200,000 and as many as 1,000,000 impressions when baked.
The Compass Series is Presstek’s high-end, completely automated CTP solution. Its multi-cassette autoloader provides complete production flexibility; each cassette holds plates of different sizes and can be reloaded without interrupting production. Compass supports Presstek’s chemistry-free Aurora Pro, Aeon and other 830 nm plates and is available in four- and eight-page models.
Presstek’s mid-range CTP offering the Dimension Pro will be featured at Graph Expo. The base unit is semi-automated, and it also available with an optional automated plate loading system. Like the Compass it supports Presstek’s chemistry-free Aurora Pro and Anthem Pro as well as Aeon and other 830 nm plates and is available in four-and eight-page configurations.
The Vector FL52 features an integrated plate washer and uses Presstek’s chemistry-free Freedom Pro plates. The Vector offers the small format (52cm and under) printer a metal platemaking solution that provides higher productivity, a cleaner operation, and a lower overall operating cost than any other metal platemaking solution on the market.
The Presstek DPM Pro 400 is an easy-to-use, fully automated, high resolution polyester plate CTP system with an integrated plate processor. It supports plate widths up to 16.31" (414mm) and is faster, more economical to use, more environmentally-friendly, and more compact than comparable choices.
