TDP-459 and TDP-324e Dual Function CTP and Film Manager Unit

Mitsubishi Imaging makes going green affordable with the eco-friendly Thermal DigiPlate, the 2-up dual function CTP system ideal for printers producing mostly one or two color jobs who want an environmentally friendly upgrade from analog and electrostatic plates. With 1200 dpi resolution, high speed production, and the capability of outputting either plates or film, the Thermal DigiPlater is well suited for high-volume environments looking for productive and eco-friendly option.

The Thermal DigiPlate dual function processless and chemistry-free CTP and film imager unit is highly automated. It requires minimal training to operate and minimal time to produce clean, press-ready plates or high density film output. Simply load it with a roll of Mitsubishi's thermal plate or film material and the Thermal DigiPlater essentially runs itself. You can send 1-bit TIFF files from a RIP to the TDP Controller. Plates are imaged, cut to size and ready for press in less than a minute. Film also runs quickly and achieves high density in both negative and positive plate output.

TDP-459e/324e Platesetter and Film Imager - The system requires absolutely no chemicals, toner or ink ribbon, so it’s easy and cost-effective to maintain. Processor maintenance or chemical disposal are eliminated. Maintenance means simply wiping the thermal head clean. This is a truly processless and chemistry-free platemaking and film imaging system ideal for 2-up printers who specialize in printing mostly one and two color jobs.

The Thermal DigiPlate System will produce up to 75 plates/hour widths from 9" up to 18.1" width and lengths up to x 20.8" length, it is also well suited for high-volume environments looking for an eco-friendly option.

The Thermal DigiPlater is a fully automated CTP system. It requires minimal training to operate and minimal time to produce press-ready plates. You simply load it with a roll of Thermal DigiPlate TDP-R175 and the Thermal DigiPlater essentially runs itself. You can send 1-bit Tiff files from a RIP to the TDP Controller. Plates are imaged, cut to size and ready for press in less than a minute. Conventional platemaking steps like exposing and processing film, paste-up, stripping and plate burning are suddenly obsolete, as is chemical processing. That saves you time, money and materials.
