①Significantly reduce the cost of pre-press production. One is to simplify the process flow and reduce the
In the traditional process, film production, manual imposition, printing, and other processes can save consumables and related costs. The second is that it is suitable for any traditional PS plates, using conventional developing machines and processing chemicals (chemical-free plates have been launched), and can be easily operated under bright room conditions. The third is that there is no need to change the existing hardware configuration, the data in 1bit/tiff format can be used, and the RIP data can be used without using a special network interface. It can be connected to the existing network environment to achieve low-cost operation and system operation. , The overall cost of maintenance can be reduced by about 40% compared with the CTP using special plates.
② Improve printing quality and efficiency. Using square dot imaging to achieve high-quality printing with low resolution, and can significantly shorten the RIP time, reduce the amount of processed data, save the memory of the computer system, and the exposure speed is faster. The edges of the square dots are clear and sharp, faithful to the original. In the case of the same resolution, higher copy quality can be achieved. Dot-matrix one-to-one corresponding Ps plate digital imaging can eliminate the phenomenon of dot expansion and dirty spots during plate making, which is the same as thermal and photosensitive CTP technology.
③ Reduce printing debugging time and material loss. There is no need for plate positioning, so there will be no need to re-make plates due to inaccurate positioning, avoiding spending a lot of time on printing on the machine to correct the plate, and can minimize the time for short-run printing plate change and machine debugging, and reduce water, paper, and Consumables such as ink consumption.
④ Give full play to the potential performance of the traditional PS version. In traditional plate-making, because dot gain and dot loss are unavoidable when printing on film, the exposure range of PS plate is only 2%-97%, and the controllable range of printing is only about 5%-85%. After digital direct imaging technology, due to the elimination of dot gain and loss, the PS plate can reproduce 1% to 100% dots excellently, and the controllable range of printing has also expanded from 1% to 99%.
⑤ Production is more flexible. The platform-style exposure structure has an incomparable advantage over other exposure structures for supplementary editions. The missing pages can be blanked, and the existing pages can be exposed first, and the vacant files can be supplemented after the arrival of the exposure. There is no need to passively wait for everything like other CTPs. Only when the page is complete can it be exposed? And it can expose 2 smaller printing plates at the same time. In addition, the positioning pins can be flexibly replaced according to different positioning systems, and telescopic pins or three-pin positioning systems can be used according to customer needs.
⑥The selection of printing plates is flexible. For different jobs, both negative and positive plates can be used, and the choice of initiative is completely controlled by the customer. Generally, for printed products with mainly textual content (the printing plate coverage is less than 50%), use the negative type conventional Ps plate (N-type); if the image area on the printing plate is large (such as commercial printing, the printing plate coverage is greater than 50%), or some special ink corrosion l strong (such as UV ink), you can use the positive type Ps version (P-type, strong chemical corrosion resistance, high printing resistance), which saves time and is more efficient.
⑦ Fast, stable, and smooth integration with the traditional PS plate printing process. The on-machine printing and image reproduction capabilities of the PS plate have been tested by the market for a long time and have been recognized. The technical process has been perfected and has been widely used in the printing industry. The introduction of CTcP can continue to use the original plate processor and developer solution and can reduce downtime for plate change during printing. The original printing parameters such as water-ink balance and printing pressure do not need to be re-tested. It not only ensures the stability of printing but also ensures the economy and high efficiency.
