RYE, NY – Metal has met its match. Introducing the DPX 2 polyester CTP platesetter from Mitsubishi Imaging (MPM), Inc. Manufactured by ECRM, Mitsubishi’s new DPX 2 offers the resolution of metal platesetters without their high prices, making DPX 2 the clear, profitable choice for digital platemaking.
The DPX 2 offers upgrades to the DPX System, the industry standard for polyester Computer to Plate (CTP) technology. Sporting an internal drum for high-resolution imaging and image to punch for consistent and accurate registration, the DPX 2 produces imaged, punched, press-ready plates in minutes.
“Our DPX 2 enables process color printing as well as metal platesetters and beats them hands-down in price,” said Colleen Molkenbur, Senior Product Manager at Mitsubishi Imaging. “It is safer, smarter, sleeker and easier-to-use than anything else on the market. Now it’s easier than ever for printers to step up to computer-to-plate technology.”
Polyester plates eliminate stripping and chemical costs associated with the analog metal plate process. With total cost of ownership so low, many print shops find that they recoup their investment in polyester very quickly, much faster than with a metal CTP system. Both new customers and existing DPX System owners can boost productivity with these new DPX 2 features:
· Updated design with new lift-off doors
· Automatic pre-load of plates
· Feed sensors that register the plate edge
· New replenishment system
· Refined graphical user interface
DPX 2 IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The company also expanded its commitment to eco-friendly products by making the new DPX 2 RoHS-compliant. The RoHS Directive is a new European Union standard aimed at making electronic equipment safer for the environment.
The new RoHS-compliant DPX 2 is available from Mitsubishi’s authorized dealer network. To find a dealer, call 800 765 9384 x3232 or visit the Graphic Arts Division at http://www.mitsubishiimaging.com and select Dealer Locator.
