123ctp - A COMPLETE PREPRESS SYSTEM

THAT SAVES TIME, MONEY AND SPACE

 

WHAT IS IT?

The 123ctp is a highly versatile prepress system for use in the printing industry. Designed to be a compact, neat and easy to use system. 123ctp will increase efficiency and flexibility with ctf films, colour digital proofing and conventional UV process free plate making. It uses conventional UV PS plates and comes with a 123ctip Comfortline CT5 UV led box.

WHAT DOES THE COMPANY 123CTP.COM SAY ABOUT IT?

In the last few years there have been many InkJet prepress systems that have come and gone on the market.

The 123ctp system is the result of harvesting all the technological advances in the InkJet prepress equipment and surveying print firms to find out what they want and what works best. With this research and development the system is ideal for the small and medium-sized print company.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

As a breakthrough product for printers, 123ctp enables the production of process free dry plate production creating minimal down time. It is also brilliant for colour scanning to create proofs, posters and banners, as well as being a high quality imagesetter. It can create metal UV PS plates, processless dry plates, polyester plates, CtF film, banners, adhesive films, backlite foils, canvas and various papers and substrates. And it will process all conventional makes of plates including Agfa and Fuji and all leading brands.

WHO IS IT AIMED AT?

The system is aimed at all printing firms due to its versatility. Litho printers will be able to use its plate making facility without all the paraphernalia of a dark room set while all printers will find the proofing system ideal for quickly printing off high quality posters and banners. For many companies the 123ctp is the only prepress machine they will need.

HOW ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY IS IT?

With less chemicals to dispose of and less cleaning involved 123ctp makes less of an impact on the environment. Add to that the fact is uses less energy in the process means it will lower the amount of electricity used.

HOW EASY IS IT TO USE?

With a few minutes training any member of staff can use the 123ctp as it requires no special knowledge of reprographics or safety attire. There are short films to show just how easy and straight forward it is to use here:

The plate is positioned on high precision electromagnetic pins, a green light indicates when it is in position while an optical sensor automatically aligns the side registration. Computer software with a RIP connects the system to a PC. Once imaged the plate is moved to the upper UV led box or a conventional UV frame without having to be in a darkroom. Once exposed the plate is transferred to the vertical processor where it is briefly washed with water, developed for about 30 seconds, washed and once dry is ready for the press.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

The entry model (as they vary in size) is the B3 with a processor and led box is €13.190,= excluding consumables and software. It means it is considerably less expensive than a conventional laser CTP with virtually the same quality.

HOW MANY ARE INSTALLED?

More than 200 prepress rooms have taken delivery of them so far.
