Printware Announces CTP System for Small Printers
The offering is based on the company's standard product PlateStream, but it will be geared toward the financial needs of smaller firms. PlateStream-SC starts at $35,000 and will include a silver-halide polyester plate.
PlateStream-SC was designed to accommodate most two-up presses as it produces plates up to 13.3 inches-by-22 inches. In addition, the system provides 2,400 dot-per-inch resolution and 175 line screens.
Printware, based in the UK, said the product eliminates waste and trimming. The company claims that PlateStream-SC will save printers up to 50 percent in material costs.
