Max plate size 900 x 1200mm (48 x 35”)
Steel back letterpress plates can be handled with optional Hybrid (vacuum/magnetic) drum
Improved Plate Handling
With its built in FlexTray, ThermoFlexX 48 automatic loading and unloading streamlines efficient plate production, assisting operators to image plates easily with greatly reduced risk of damage. Furthermore, your investment is naturally future-proof with the option to add automated touch-free transport into a Catena-E LED Exposure Unit.
Highest Resolution and Flexibility
ThermoFlexX imagers offer the ultimate choice of resolutions. Any of the following resolutions can be provided: 2400, 2540, 4000, 4800 or 5080 dpi, with automatic “resolution switching” matching laser optics to file resolution. Higher resolution image handling, for example 10,160 dpi, is available for security print applications. Hybrid drums (vacuum channels and magnets for steel backed letterpress plates) are a reasonably priced option.
Waste Saving Features
No other digital imager offers the unique Vacuum Slider Concept (VSC). Any width of plate can be loaded quickly and easily without the need for taping. Full imaging speed is maintained with a full vacuum level making partial plates equally fast and accurate. Plate cut-offs or ‘scraps’ can be used without complication. The Vacuum Slider is positioned automatically.
