basysPrint to Demonstrate 857 UV-Setter #Ipex
UV-Setter 450, 850 and VLF systems offer Single Cassette (SCA) or Multi-Cassette (MCA) automation. The single cassette holds up to 100 plates of a particular format in a storage cassette. Further plate formats can be made available by way of an additional trolley. The Single Cassette version can be expanded quickly and inexpensively if plate volumes justify an upgrade to a multi-cassette version.
The Multi-Cassette version holds a maximum of 500 plates in up to five different plate formats. The SCA and MCA variants both incorporate fully automatic slip sheet removal, and optionally also automatic punching as an option.
With their flatbed design, all versions of the UV-Setters 450, 850 and VLF can expose plates of different formats simultaneously. Using a 1-bit TIFF interface, users can freely choose whether to integrate a UV-Setter into an existing workflow system, or to install a dedicated overall solution tailored specifically to individual production requirements.
“We have worked hard to bring to market products that can image the broadest possible array of plate types,” added Lievens. “The basysPrint systems combine the benefits of CtP with the unique process and economic advantages of the conventional UV plate technology. Users may employ negative or positive plates from practically all manufacturers of UV-sensitive plates. These plates are light- and temperature-resistant, insensitive to scratches and available worldwide at unbeatable prices. UV-sensitive plates ensure low costs for chemistry and disposal, and simple integration into existing workflow systems and its customer-specific configuration. Visitors to our stand will be able to experience this innovative UV-Setter first-hand and quickly see how easily it will fit into their operational model while delivering productivity and cost improvements.”
With a UV-Setter 450 or 850 and conventional UV-sensitive plates, printers can be confident of achieving the maximum possible process and production stability: The square pixels of the basysPrint UV-Setter provide exact reproduction of the image pixels on the plate, while the optimum ink-water balance achieved by the plate itself guarantees edge-sharp transfer onto the substrate. Unbaked negative plates achieve run lengths of 400,000 and more. With a positive plate, this figure can be boosted to over 1.5 million impressions.
