Special ADAST accessories (including an in-line aqueous coater equipped with hot and cold air knives, IR dryer and circulator) increase productivity, speed turnaround time and extend the scope of jobs that can be printed on an ADAST press — and in a single pass.
At Graph Expo, ADAST demonstrated a five-color model 757 with in-line coater performing a full makeready including sub-30-second semi-automatic plate loading, setting of the ink, striking register and matching to CTP CIP3 output via the ADAST AdaControl computerized inking console. The plates were imaged at 2540 dpi on a HighWater Python CTP system equipped with violet laser technology. Ink profiles were preset, connecting the CTP CIP3 output to the AdaControl console.
