ECRM Unveils 120 Plates-Per-Hour Automated Violet Ctp For Newspapers At Ifraexpo 2006
Press release from the issuing company
WATFORD, HERTFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM -- September 20, 2006 -- For more than 30 years, Ifra has been promoted as the world’s largest and most important exhibition for the newspaper industry, as well as the launching pad for new developments and technology. ECRM today announced that will be introducing the MAKO NEWSmatic HS CTP platesetter at IfraExpo 2006. The MAKO NEWSmatic HS platesetter produces over 120 plates per hour and employs ECRM’s patented FleXarm slip sheet removal system that automates CTP production. Via sensors, slip-sheets are tracked through pick-up, removal and disposal using ECRM’s patented slip sheet compacting technology.
At the show, ECRM will be exhibiting a MAKO NEWSmatic HS running live with a Glunz & Jensen online processor, as well as showcasing the MAKO NEWS platesetter. IfraExpo 2006 is being held October 9-12, 2006 in Amsterdam (at the RAI Exhibition Centre) and ECRM will be exhibiting in booth 2425-A in the American pavilion.

“Newspaper publishers are in a constant search for higher productivity,” notes ECRM Product Manager John Marzec. “The introduction of a higher-speed platesetter is an obvious attraction. But the automated features of the MAKO NEWSmatic HS are just as beneficial. It enables plates to be imaged and processed automatically and without human interaction. It’s these time savings that are critical to deadline-sensitive publishers. As we say in our promotions, it’s the ideal transition to unattended CTP production for local and regional newspaper publishers.”
