The rapid economic development being experienced by emerging countries is also leading to a growing demand for printed materials. As this occurs, printing companies in these countries are increasingly indicating that while they would like to shorten prepress processes and improve quality, further expanding productivity also remains a priority. To meet these needs, Dainippon Screen's Media And Precision Technology Company has released the
This new high-end model for Screen's PlateRite 8600MII thermal CtP series, known for its outstanding cost performance, is capable of outputting up to 30 plates per hour as a semi-automated model. The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA will be launched primarily for markets in emerging countries around the world.
Particularly in emerging countries such as China and India, companies have been progressively restructuring printing processes by transitioning from computer to film (CtF) to CtP, helping to improve both production capabilities and quality. Additionally, as printing demand grows along with domestic consumption, there has been an increasing requirement for
greater processing speeds. Together these factors have quickly accelerated the need to switch to CtP, with its ability to maintain printing speeds while delivering exceptional cost performance.
In response, Screen has developed the PlateRite 8600MII-ZA specifically for emerging countries. This new model will be positioned as the high-end system for its PlateRite 8600MII thermal CtP series. The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA provides capabilities including an output speed of 30 plates per hour and semi-auto function for discharging exposed plates from the output section to an automatic processor, all packaged in a compact body.
Screen will continue to meet the ever-changing needs of the printing industries in emerging countries, with the goal of further increasing its own business as these markets continue their rapid growth.
