New Presstek Blue Waterless Plates

07 Jun 2012 11:50 AM | Deleted user
PearlDry Blue is a true chemistry-free plate that can be imaged on 830nm thermal CTP systems from a range of manufacturers.  Its fast and efficient imaging allows qualified thermal CTP systems to operate at maximum speed.  PearlDry Blue provides daylight handling and operation for up to 8 hours.  The non-ablative plate requires only a simple water wash after imaging.  No chemistry, baking or gum is required.  It outputs resolution of 1% to 99% dots at 200 lpi (80 l/cm), and stochastic (FM) screening is easily handled.  The plate is rated for run lengths up to 100,000 impressions and is ideal for both web and sheetfed applications.
This enhanced plate is designed to appeal to printers currently utilizing waterless printing technology.  PearlDry Blue offers users the opportunity to realize the benefits of waterless printing and at the same time utilize a true chemistry-free platemaking system.  Successful testing has been completed on KBA Cortina web fed newspaper presses at several European sites in conjunction with their partner Illies Graphik.”
