Product category: Computer to plate systems for offset printing

XPose! Thermal

The CTP system for thermal offset plates

The XPose! Thermal was developed for use in job and packaging printing. It is also optimally suited for service providers and is available for all plate formats.

The imaging device offers a quick return on investment and is commercially viable at plate quantities above 5,000 m2/year.

The following sizes of CTP system are available:

• XPose! 230 Thermal

• XPose! 260 Thermal

• XPose! 260-L Thermal

• XPose! 260-XXL Thermal

• XPose! 290 Thermal (on request)

The number of lasers can be varied from 32 to 64. For plates with high energy requirements, HiPower lasers can be chosen in order to enable high imaging speeds. With resolutions up to 10,000 dpi, XPose! Thermal can handle all customer-specific demands on an individual basis.

830 nm Thermal laser diodes

The XPose! Thermal is built on proven technology which uses thermal laser diodes for the imaging of traditional thermal offset plates. The laser diodes are characterised by their long performance life and by the fact that they do not require water cooling. We have been working successfully with thermal technology for 15 years.

Thermal offset plates

Thermal offset plates satisfy the highest quality requirements and are used in security and bank note printing. In Europe, thermal offset plates are the most frequently used plate type. You will also benefit from a large choice of plates from various manufacturers.

Plate technology

Thermal plates can be processed in daylight. Even without baking, the plate offers high print runs. Plates are also available for UV colours. Through baking of the plate, the print run can be dramatically increased.

MultiDX!

The flat-bed CTP system with a maximum number of application areas

The MultiDX! is available in sizes 220 and 240. The MultiDX! 220 can image print forms up to an 800 x 600 mm (31.5 x 23.6 inches) format. The MultiDX! 240 images print forms up to a 1300 x 1100 mm (51.2 x 43.3 inches) format.

The MultiDX! uses unique hybrid technology to directly expose a wide range of print forms. With resolutions as high as 10,000 dpi, the MultiDX! stands for the highest quality and can produce highly precise line details equally well on offset plates and on relief printing plates. Both sizes are available in five different configurations:

MultiDX! Flex
The CTP system for all relief printing applications
The MultiDX! Flex is very well suited for narrow-web and label printing as well as for printing on three-dimensional objects (cans, bottles, tubes, etc.). It has been designed such that imaging of all materials is possible with digital coating (LAMS layer):

• Digital flexo plates

• Digital letterpress plates
• Digital coating plates
• Ablative offset plates
• Ablation films

Use of the MultiDX! Flex is possible in custom applications in which ablation layers are deployed.

PrintQ and SupportTool

For all MultiDX! and XPose! systems
Users can efficiently process incoming one-bit TIFFs with the user-friendly PrintQ software package bundled with the Lüscher system. Software components include the print spooler (queued jobs), the image and job preview feature with sorting and statistical information, and the print form and user database. The SupportTool also contains process flow visualisation and system analysis, and allows changes to be made to the mechanical processes.
