Computer to Plate ( CTP )
What PlateSetter works for you?

Computer to Plate, Direct to Plate, CTP, or whatever you call it, imaging directly on a printing plate, with no intermediate steps, is the next step in prepress technology. Platesetter sales have outpaced film imagesetter sales to the point that many manufacturers are discontinuing their film system production. Why? Less steps mean reduced labor cost, reduced material cost, and fewer chances for error.

DPX System

The DPX Platesetting System is an internal drum device that images 175-line, perfectly registered, press-ready Silver DigiPlate material directly from your desktop. The DPX Platesetter delivers processed, dried, pre-punched, press-ready plates quickly and efficiently so you can compete for short-run, process color jobs.
One Machine - One Process
The only polyester CTP system that fully integrates all process in one unit and in one automated process.
With the finished digital original on your computer, it's easy to create press-ready plates. Like any other printer the DPX is directly connected to your MAC or PC environment. The page size is defined and after selecting "print", a plate is produced. If imposition is required, you only need a standard imposition tool.
What are the benefits of CTP?
Lower costs and increased productivity because there are no manual processes the DPX enables you to produce more plates per hour, achieve better usage of your printing machines and gives you the capacity to take in more jobs without increasing labor cost.
Shorter delivery times - On-demand printing
Since the DPX CTP system reduces the process of plate making significantly, delivery time to your customers can be similarly reduced. This makes the DPX user an important and competitive player within the field of on-demand printing.
Generates new business opportunities
With the DPX you have a highly versatile system, which allow you to compete in the rapidly emerging process color (4 color) short run market.
4 Color Applications
The DPX is the only dedicated polyester CTP machine on the market, which directly from the machine, is able to support you with color separated and punched plates (perfectly in register), ready to be mounted directly onto the press.
Ensures high quality - every time
CTP technology guarantees top quality by making a clean, first generation dot directly on the plate. All the quality-reducing intermediate steps of classical platemaking are eliminated.
Ensures a correct image on the plate
Image position on the plate is controlled by the RIP and is set up according to the specification you choose. It is always in perfect register to your requirements for the gripper margin.
In order to save time when changing material widths and using different printing presses, the DPX has two roll magazines which allow for usage of a wide variety of plate sizes and printing presses.
Optional Plate Register Punch
As an option you can choose between various integrated plate punch solutions (landscape, portrait or both). The unique feature of exposing the plates in punch position ensures the accuracy to register two or 4 color jobs (process).
