A Luxel Violet platesetter is just part of the CTP equation. Fujifilm has a wealth of expertise in the field of reprographics that encompasses all the consumables and workflow systems needed to provide a complete turnkey solution.
Choosing the right RIP and Workflow to manage incoming files is as important as the machine itself, as is the choice of plates and chemistry. To complement its Violet platesetters, Fujifilm’s Brillia LP-NV photopolymer plates provide consistent press performance on run lengths of up to 200,000 impressions or 1 million when baked. The plate has a developer with improved resistance to pressroom chemistry, increasing developer life and reducing sludge. The plate is rated for 2 – 98 per cent at up to 200lpi.
Fujifilm provides a totally integrated system to ensure that your new CTP system works the way you want it to from day one.Violet – The future of CTP:
Violet technology has gone from strength to strength with more platesetters now using the low cost, low power diodes than ever before. Newspaper and B2 markets in particular are dominated with Violet laser devices due to their leading productivity, low cost of ownership and high quality.
So where is the future now for Violet diodes, and how will they impact the CTP market?
Violet diode lasers are being constantly driven by the demand of the consumer DVD market. Ever growing DVD writer sales are pushing for yet higher powered lasers to enable more data to be burnt to media, whilst still maintaining low costs. Dramatic announcements in the development path for Violet diodes are now clear and as the 5mw diodes moved to 30mw, we are now seeing 60mw and 100mw with 200mw expected in the next few years.
Future benefits are clear, productivity, quality and cost improvements coupled with likely increases in laser life. Productivity improvements are possible due to the sensitivity of Violet plates, only small increases in power are required for greater imaging speed. As power increases so does the potential to create sharper dots. Costs of lasers have begun to reduce in comparative terms, and laser life has increased. As the laser powers increase, the opportunity for process-less and other new technologies become a more realistic option for the future.
Violet technology has come a long way in the last 5 years and this is expected to continue with even more pace over the next few years. Product Features:
