For printers that want to get into a Computer-to-Plate production mode The Printers Shopper is offering a complete all inclusive package during the DRUPA show that is very affordable. Besides the plate maker and all peripherals, it includes 100 of the their new Polyester II Laser Plates free.
The plate imaging device is a completely rebuilt HP 5000 model printer. The features of this particular model make it well suited for poly plate production. “It is set-up specifically for plates when it leaves our floor, and goes out with 100mb of memory and a 6-month warranty” stated Kurt Coralline, General Manager. The unit can still be used for general purpose monochrome printing.
Advantages of using laser plates include: no film or plate processing chemicals to store or dispose of, no camera, stripping, or plate making supplies needed, reduced labor costs, and daylight handling. Run lengths of up to 10,000 impressions are typical, and the Polyester II Laser Plate is also compatible with both rubber and oil based inks.
