Agfa ProSet Series
We service and sell the complete line
Agfa ProSet 9400The ProSet 9400 was Agfa Corps first truly successful Laser ImageSetter. Production started in the late 1980s, and continued through most of the 1990s. As the world of typesetting moved from dedicated front systems to open, Postscript based Imaging, many thousands of these systems were sold. These are rugged, workhorse machines, without any serious or consistent flaws. Because of this, the 9400 remains a very viable option today for the shop looking for a low cost Imaging system.
The 9400 uses an Infrared Laser to expose Film, RC Paper, or Polyester plate material. It is a capstan type system, with an imaging speed of 4 inches per minute at 1200 dpi and 2 inches per minute at 2400 dpi. At 2400 dpi, it will hold a good 133 line screen. Maximum media width is 13.3", and it will image edge to edge.
With a high performance software RIP, such as our Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP, these machines can hold fairly tight registration, however, over the long term, periodic media transport maintenance may be required. If you will need to image longer pages with tight registration, this may not be the system for you, but it is perfect for the shop with modest needs and a tight budget.
Agfa Proset 9550 / 9800 / 9836Agfas ProSet 9800 and 9550 were developed in the early 1990s to meet the need for a modern, high performance, tight registration, high speed ImageSetter. This was Agfas first true four color imaging system. While it uses the same case as the earlier 9400 model, on the inside, everything is new and improved.
New and improved features include:
So, what can the 9800/9550 do for you? Thats easy. It can do everything an AccuSet or ECRM, or other capstan imagesetter can do. It is as fast, as easy to operate, as reliable, as good in every way.
