Answers to general questions about CTCP

basic information

Q: what are the advantages of CTCP compared with CTP

answer: 1. Use the traditional PS plate that is popular all over the world, that is, the ordinary plate with the wavelength of 350~450nm. The choice of printing plate is not limited by the manufacturer, and each printing plate will save half of the cost

2. Best printing provides a series of products with all plate specifications

3. The stability of equipment operation is very good

4. The equipment can be applied to various working environments without yellow light darkroom, and the requirements for temperature and humidity are not high

5. The working process of the equipment is simple. CTCP is very suitable for customers who upgrade from traditional plate making to computer plate making, and the customers' original prepress investment will not be wasted. For example, the 1-bit TIFF file format used by CTCP can be easily integrated into the popular prepress system on the market, and the customers' original plate making equipment can also continue to be used, and the camera can be retained as a supplement to CTCP

6. CTCP uses the new DSI digital point imaging technology to obtain high-quality imaging, which can be applied to the highest plate making requirements

7. Using the open working platform, the control system is simple and intuitive, easy to use and maintain

8. The exposure head adopts the latest spin technology for continuous exposure to achieve maximum productivity

9. Provide various positioning systems according to customer requirements

10. CTCP is environmentally friendly and does not need to pay expensive waste water and liquid waste treatment fees

Why is the price of

ctcp relatively high

ctcp's biggest advantage is to use ordinary PS plates for plate making. In order to achieve this function, the imaging system of CTCP equipment is far more complex than other CTP products. So far, only basysprint can develop CTCP products, while Kodak, HP, Fuji, screen, Agfa and other companies only have CTP products. In fact, Agfa's CTP products are also OEM produced by basysprint company. The price of CTCP is relatively high, but we use a much cheaper traditional PS plate. CTCP can save you a lot of costs in the plate and printing process. Compared with users who use film or CTP before printing, CTCP is a device that saves users money. In fact, compared with many thermal CTPs of the same level, our price is not high. If you already have printing equipment, we will save you the investment in this field, and you don't have to worry about the expensive special potion of CTP. Because you use 1-bit TIFF file format, your choice of rip and proofing equipment is also more flexible

Q: what is the basic model of the equipment

answer: you can choose the corresponding model according to the business situation of the printing factory:

5 series, four open, 15pph (single head) and 25pph (double head), manual, commercial packaging books and periodicals are applicable

6 series, four opening, 25pph (double head), fully automatic publishing. For customers who require high publishing efficiency, it is suitable for commercial packaging books and periodicals and small newspaper publishing

7 series, folio, 11pph and 20pph, manual, semi-automatic, fully automatic, suitable for commercial packaging books and periodicals

11 series, large format, 10pph (fourth generation) and 16pph (fifth generation), manual and semi-automatic

about equipment

Q: what is the publishing speed

answer: 5 series, 15~25pph; 6 Series: 25pph; 7 Series: 11~20pph; 11 series, 10~16pph. (excluding the version change time)

Q: how do you get your plate making speed

answer: 50% image coverage, negative version, 1500dpi resolution, maximum exposure area of the model

Q: what is the resolution

answer: 90012701500dpi

ask: how many extra lines can you achieve? Can you add FM

answer: it can be added to 200 lines. With rip, a higher number of lines can be added. Our smallest pixel is only 17um, so there is no problem with FM plus

ask: does your machine need special environmental requirements

answer: uv-setter can work normally in ordinary environment. Temperature: 18~24c; Humidity: 20~80%, no condensation. There is no need to prepare dark room or yellow light lighting like other CTP equipment, and daylight conditions are OK

Q: how stable is your machine

answer: our imaging technology has been accumulated for more than ten years, and we have thousands of installed capacity in the world. These data have shown that our equipment is mature

Q: I heard that some manufacturers in the market also produce direct plate making machines for traditional plates in the opposite direction to the above conditioning screws. How do your equipment compare with them

answer: we know these manufacturers. They may have good concepts, but I can tell you that these devices have been introduced in recent years. Their immature and unstable devices are not comparable with those we have developed for more than 10 years. (some information about lusher was released in 2006. The price of the equipment is very high. This equipment usually needs to be equipped with a certain number of other equipment as auxiliary or mechanical testing equipment during the experiment, which is 2 to 3 million, and the speed is much lower than the propaganda.)

Q: your device resolution is only 1500dpi, which is too low

answer: our equipment can easily add 200 lines, which can meet the needs of most printed materials. With the front-end rip, our machine can output 250~300 lines or even higher number of lines, which can completely do some printing jobs with very high requirements. The points output by our device are unique square points with very sharp edges. Compared with the difficult to control circular points of general CTP devices, we can copy printed matter more realistically. At the same time, our device can also output high-quality printed matter with low resolution, reducing the amount of data and saving document processing time

although the general CTP has a high resolution, we know that there are many factors that affect point reduction. In addition to the pre press image processing, there are also many other factors with high efficiency, such as the limitation of plates, the control of printing process, the control of ink, paper, etc., so the so-called high resolution of these devices is often difficult to achieve in the actual production process

about plates

ask: can your equipment use non processing plates

answer: our equipment can be exposed on plates applicable to the wavelength range of 360nm~450nm, which of course includes some treatment free plates. We have also been testing some other treatment free plates

ask: can your device use a negative version

answer: of course, our equipment can be exposed on positive and negative plates. In fact, we recommend you to use a negative version, because when using a negative version, it is exposed only where there are images. Calculated by 50% image coverage, the speed of exposure on the negative version is twice that on the positive version

ask: which CTCP plates do you recommend

answer: the biggest advantage of CTCP is that it adapts to ordinary PS plates, which includes almost all plates. However, the effect of use is different. We have done a lot of experiments in China and Germany. At that time, we can provide customers with a variety of plate experiment reports. Of which 2 Ring Express: it is mainly composed of two parts. The data exposed by some domestic PS versions on CTCP has been better than the data provided by German factories. Customers can make the best choice according to their own situation

about processes and rip

ask: what processes does your machine support

answer: our machine supports all processes that can generate 1-bit TIFF format

ask: what rip does your machine use

answer: most rip machines in the market can be used. For example: Harlequin, Agfa Taipan, Agfa apogee, ramp, heidelburg delta technology, etc

about bulbs

Q: what is the life span of your bulbs

answer: 2000 hours. UV lamp is the only consumable of this equipment, and the cost converted to each plate is very low

Q: why is the life of the laser head much shorter than that of CTP

answer: the light source of CTP equipment is dozens or even hundreds of laser diodes. Although the service life of individual light-emitting elements is relatively long, in fact, due to the large number, the probability of damage is quite high. As far as we know, the failure time of most CTP light sources is far lower than the actual service life. In many cases, it will be damaged within 2000 hours, that is, the service life of our bulbs. You know, for thermal CTP, the damage of a single diode will halve the performance of the whole system
