basysPrint to Demonstrate 857 UV-Setter #Ipex

IEPER, BELGIUM—March 16, 2010—basysPrint, a division of Punch Graphix and the inventor of UV computer-to-plate solutions, will be demonstrating at Ipex its new 857 UV-Setters with laser exposure technology for 8 up applications. basysPrint UV Setter systems are available in 4-up, 8-up and VLF configurations and offer a range of flexible configuration options to ensure an exact match to customer needs and optimal return on investment. basysPrint will be located in the Punch Graphix stand, Hall 11, Stand C230, at the show.

“basysPrint first demonstrated its UV-Setters 450 and 850 at drupa 2008 to very positive reviews,” said Christophe Lievens, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We are very pleased to be at Ipex with the latest generation of these highly-configurable flatbed UV Setters that guarantee ultimate flexibility with regard to operating speed, plate handling, format range and punching options.”

Modular Design

The UV-Setter Series 850 is designed to expose eight pages (up to format class 3b) and can be used for commercial, packaging and book printing alike. They expose all plate formats up to a maximum of 1150 x 940 mm (45″ x 37″).The exposure speed can be configured individually on the basis of high-performance diode modules (DSI³), enabling plate throughput rates to be more than doubled. The modular design places no restrictions on the diversity of automation solutions. Numerous variants are possible to augment the basic models in four- or eight-page format, for example with Single Cassette Automation (SCA) or fully automatic Multi-Cassette Automation (MCA). basysPrint UV-Setters expose all UV sensitive plates for all types of printing presses., and are fitted with an integrated punch, which provides fast, reliable and register-accurate customer-specific punching before exposure. Alternatively, it is possible to work with 3-point plate alignment.

DSI³ modules ensure stability and speed

The exposure units of the latest basysPrint UV-Setters 450, 850 and VLF are based on the proven DSI³ technology with high-performance diode modules, making UV platesetters an interesting option for both large and small companies. Unlike other CtP systems, basysPrint uses modules which combine the light output of several diodes installed separately from the exposure head. A compensator bundles the energy and delivers it via fiber optics to the DMD. DSI³ modules normally operate over the entire service life of the UV-Setter without need for replacement. A constant light output level is maintained within the modules by way of their APC (Automatic Power Control) circuitry. DSI³ basysPrint systems are characterized by a permanently high degree of stability, even without further calibration.
