Presstek Introduces New Vector FL52 CTP System

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Hudson, NH – May 30, 2008 – Presstek Inc., the leading manufacturer and marketer of digital offset printing business solutions, today announced that it will be introducing the new Presstek Vector FL52 platesetter and chemistry-free Freedom Pro plates at drupa 2008. This enhanced small format metal platemaking system joins Presstek’s robust portfolio of environmentally friendly CTP systems that will be featured in Hall 04, Stand A55.

“For over 16 years Presstek has brought innovative chemistry-free digital printing solutions to market, and the Vector FL52 system is no exception,” said Scott Champeau, Presstek Product Marketing Manager, CTP Hardware. “Small commercial, in-plant and quick printers can now address a wide range of small format presses with the print performance benefits of a chemistry-free, grained aluminum plate imaged on one of the most cost-effective and easy-to-use 2-up CTP systems on the market.”

The Presstek Vector FL52 chemistry-free platemaking solution features a fiber laser imaging system that is engineered to deliver excellent dot quality and high reliability.  The Vector FL52 supports a wide range of plate sizes. New chemistry-free Freedom Pro plates are optimized to work with the Vector FL52. Their grained anodized surface, based on Presstek’s exclusive Pro graining technology, provides superior print performance, improved roll-up, better ink and water latitude, overall color consistency throughout the press run and excellent on-press handling.

Freedom Pro offers true chemistry-free performance, which does not require any gumming, baking or chemical processing, taking time and cost out of the process, and supports run lengths of up to 25,000 impressions. With chemistry-free metal plates, print service providers can achieve both cost savings and confidence in the quality of printing they produce, positioning them to more competitively meet the growing demand for fast turnaround printing produced in an environmentally responsible manner.

The new Vector FL52 easily integrates with Presstek’s Momentum Pro workflow. The Vector FL52, with Freedom Pro plates, is available for ordering at drupa 2008, with shipping commencing during the third quarter of 2008.

“Vector FL52’s small footprint and competitive price makes it ideal for small printing operations,” commented Champeau. “The new Vector FL52 and Freedom Pro plate demonstrate our commitment to providing integrated solutions for this segment of the market.”
