CTP-processing and thermosystems
Thermo-processing for computer-to-plate
Generally one can say that for every thermo plate the right system must be chosen. The positive thing of our different kinds of production is the fact that we have alternatives for all eventualities
In connection with our frequency screen plate processors we are able to offer an outmost constant system for the thermo processing. In case that the thermo plate cannot be processed with daylight, we will make sluices between the systems.
Above all this is necessary if a thermo oven is placed before the plate processor and you have to choose another speed because of thermo reasons. We are able to promise you a temperature constant of 1,5 - 2 ° C +/-.
This evenness can only be reached because the inner construction is not only made of stainless steel but also of high-quality titanium materials. The developing section also guarantees with ist special punge bath in connection with filtration, cooling, developer flow analysis and ph-value measurement an absolutely continous replenishment and development. A digital indication confirms the measurement at any time. Especially for thermo plates a continous heating and developing process is very important.
Process CTP and conventional printing plates in one system
The fundamental philosophy of processing all CTP aluminium printing plates in one system wherever possible has become a reality. Only a few modifications are needed to change between the different types of printing plate. This naturally has the great advantage that every customer is free to buy where and what they want.
Since all CTP plates are subject to very strict setting parameters we have found the optimum solution to keep the developer constant with a two-component regeneration system. This supplements our development chain in connection with our thermo-systems and we can process any preheat aluminium printing plate with nor problems. These and further details make our "Diamond" machines the most flexible processors on the market. Our quality level, which was always of the highest standards, has been further improved through the "Diamond".
