Wednesday, April 05, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

VALHALLA, N.Y. (April 4, 2006) – Fujifilm is helping newspaper publishers eliminate the difference between newspaper and commercial offset quality and will introduce its new Saber News CTP at NEXPO 06 on April 1-4, 2006 at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center. Based on proven Saber Series technology for the commercial printing market, the Fujifilm Saber News CTP device is a reliable and highly productive CTP system for the newspaper industry. With production speeds of up to 130 12 3/8” x 24” single plates per hour at 1016 dpi, or up to 107 24” x 23” panorama plates per hour at 1016 dpi, the Fujifilm Saber News CTP also features twin laser exposure for productivity and redundancy as well as long life, low cost violet diodes. “Fujifilm not only has a reputation for producing quality consumable products for the newspaper industry, but also a reputation of technological design and innovation in building CTP systems,” said Lane Palmer, Fujifilm’s director of newspaper sales. “Using the same award-winning manufacturing facilities, Fujifilm now introduces the Saber News CTP device and brings Fujifilm quality and reliability to newspaper publishers.” As publishers know, the newspaper market demands not only reliability, but also productivity for those crucial moments just before press deadline. Optimized to run with Fujifilm’s LP-NNV violet newspaper plate, the Fujifilm Saber News CTP achieves that productivity by incorporating a twin laser exposure device that uses 60mw 405nm violet laser diodes. With up to five cassettes, each with a capacity of 150 plates, the Fujifilm Saber News CTP allows users to stores 750 plates online. Automatic interleaf sheet removal allows plates to be loaded directly from its packaging automatically. Each cassette is capable of holding a different size plate for added flexibility. With the Fujifilm Saber News CTP, users are able to image a variety of plate formats with just one device. The minimum plate size is 11 25/32” x 15 23/32” (300 mm x 400 mm) while the maximum imaging size is 40 17/32” x 35 13/32” (1030 mm x 900 mm). The Saber News CTP also features a plate edge detection system, which accurately identifies the edge of the plate for consistent and accurate exposure start points using a laser beam and yields precision image registration from plate to plate. Fujifilm will demonstrate the Saber News CTP device live during NEXPO 2006 at Booth # 14046. The Saber News CTP is available from the experts at Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc.
