In 2006 an R&D project was launched with the idea of revolutionizing the basic principle of a Ctp external drum system with a laser thermal print head. From the success of this project, CtpOptotec was born, becoming the first Italian producer of computer-to-plate systems for digital plates printing. The first version of the platesetter One Ctp was presented in 2008 during Drupa. In October 2011 a new upgraded version was launched on the market. At Drupa 2012 a second pre-press solution was presented, the workflow managing software One Workflow. The latest addition to the product range is One Autoloader, also presented at Drupa 2012.2015 marked a milestone for CtpOptotec, with the entry of a new propriety and new capital. A challenging new mission starts with this relaunch: to develop the company with the aim of making it the go-to expert in the field of pre-press.
+ New production site
In addition to our current production site, we also have a second one in Naples, where One Ctp is produced. Starting from 2014 we are thus able to start a series production on demand from a minimum of 30 to a maximum of 100 devices.
+ Training of technical assistance
Choice between on-site and online (remote) assistance. Our trainings offer a mutual exchange of knowledge on One Ctp and help us keep maintenance costs for our clients and dealers to a minimum. More info on the Sharing Knowledge program.
+ Strengthened global distribution network
Thanks to our partners, we are now present in the Netherlands, Russia, France, Spain, Iran, Cambodia, Bangladesh, UAE, UK, Ireland, Iceland, Nordic countries.
+ Constant development of One Ctp system
Both from a functional and an operational perspective. We are currently working on the development of a UV laser module for the engraving of conventional plates. This way a One Ctp user will be able to set the laser module of the machine shifting from thermal to UV and back. The UV laser module is also available as a solution for other Ctp producers.
Evolution 2014, an innovative software for One Ctp 750 and 1100 platesetters, fFexo Ctp and Ctp for newspapers are only some of our projects under development.
+ New partnerships
We are always keen to meet new partners from the tech and distribution sector, with a view to improving the systemic technology of our pre-press solutions or to presenting and distributing our technology to new markets.
