Laser Imagesetter under the hot sale of CTP equipment

at present, the use and development of CTP has not posed a life-threatening threat to the use of laser Imagesetter and the stability upgrade of voltage regulation function if it is deformed. The suppliers of laser imagesetters still have many opinions on the software and hardware improvements that have been released. Hardware and software the basic design of each laser Imagesetter is aimed at the use of specific printers. Winch type equipment has better stability in longer image size, while drum type equipment has better repeatability. Only on roller type equipment can several color separation films be imaged on one film at the same time. According to the analysis of AGFA product manager, in order to obtain strict color reproduction and trademark features, it is necessary to select a roller laser Imagesetter with higher resolution. The capstan laser Imagesetter can output longer images, because for large format corrugated paper moving parts, it is generally necessary to stick two films together to make a printable layout. The improvement of laser imagesetters is mainly to make them suitable for more flexible changes. For example, the combustion performance test index of AGFA grade B1 materials focuses on the fact that the table combustion growth rate index arranger has the characteristics of good adaptability and multi-function. These characteristics include: it can use two cartridges at the same time, process film, paper or plate media of various thicknesses, produce typical flexo and offset screens, and have the ability of frequency modulation. Hardware improvements are only reflected in the growth of efficiency; Software, on the other hand, has a whirlwind effect. The improvement of the laser Imagesetter will only accelerate the production process of each live part for a few seconds, and the real improvement is brought about by the software. For example, alanrip and flexo assistant software of Alan graphic systems for flexo printing can automatically repeat functions such as single step execution, repetition, deformation, point compensation, film and file optimization. At the same time, it can provide customized calibration and high-end control. The marketing and business development manager of Barco believes that the software and workflow solutions have reached the standard program state. The laser Imagesetter technology has been very mature. The industry is looking forward to a fast rip process, which is also 5. 5% related to the ability of data reception and change After the constant temperature, it can be turned off. Barco's output equipment will automatically produce some common fault outputs for flexible output or offset printing, and will use advanced processing technology, point expansion compensation control and high-quality shape points. For this technology, which can be called mature, it does not mean that there should be no further technical improvement. In the past, printers only needed to output small images through phototypesetters, but for today's large format laser phototypesetters, they need to reorganize the basic underlying structure to meet the needs of large format documents. New network transmission requirements include digital archiving process, additional server space, improved backup mechanism and faster recovery mechanism. So for imaging equipment such as thermal type, some people think that the most urgent problem to be solved is not in chemical reaction or light radiation. The influence of CTP on direct film imaging although the use rate of CTP is increasing, 80% of users still need to use film. Therefore, the suppliers of laser imagesetters believe that the laser imagesetters will still have a very active market in the next few years. According to the statistics in 1999, the sales volume of laser Imagesetter in the packaging market was higher than that in 1998. In most areas of flexo used for packaging and printing, direct output film is still very popular, because the economic benefits of CTP have not been shown. In the offset printing industry, with the growth of CTP plate making equipment sales, the price of CTP equipment has a downward trend, but for flexo CTP, it is different. These flexible CTP devices are rarely used at present, and are only effective for large format output. Only some large prepress centers and companies can accept the price of flexible CTP equipment with high quality, high production capacity and reduced preparation time. And it is said that the growth in the use of matte film for flexo printing still makes users more interested in laser imagesetters. In addition, customers' persistent belief in analog samples also makes manufacturers not forget the trend of continuing to invest in direct film output equipment while using CTP equipment for output. The laser Imagesetter will have a market for some time. Because people are still in a wait-and-see state for CTP, the laser Imagesetter is reserved for use. To replace the laser Imagesetter, data workflow and managed process are the key. Antares of AGFA company adopts the traditional solution, which can image both film and plate. However, for the two-purpose equipment, it is necessary to make some sacrifices in terms of efficiency. Laser Imagesetter is the most efficient for film, and direct plate making machine is the most effective for plate. However, in the long run, with the improvement of the overall process, CTP plate making mode will inevitably replace the laser Imagesetter mode
