Mitsubishi Imaging Demos Chem Free and Processless Platemaking

Press release from the issuing company

RYE, NY – Mitsubishi Imaging, the leader in paper and polyester plate systems, today announced it will be presenting its award winning chemistry-free and processless platemaking system, Thermal DigiPlate during the Sir Speedy / PIP Vendor Show on July 30 and 31, 2009.
Thermal DigiPlate is a complete Computer-to-Plate system utilizing the most innovative plate and platesetter technology. Drawing on years of experience in CTP polyester and paper-based plate technologies, as well as thermographic paper, Mitsubishi Thermal DigiPlate uses a patented thermal fusing technology to create a high-contrast image on the plate without chemical development, wash-off or ablation. Requiring absolutely no chemicals, toner or ink ribbon, TDP is both easy and less costly to maintain. Environmentally friendly, the system produces no waste except for the plate itself.
“Small print shops want to go green just as much as the big guys, but they usually can’t afford the current options, which are designed and priced for the larger printers,” said Colleen Molkenbur, Senior Product Manager at Mitsubishi Imaging. “Mitsubishi’s Thermal DigiPlate is an eco-friendly, fully automated and fully affordable CTP system designed specifically for the small commercial printer.”
TDP plates are paper-based and can reproduce screens up to 120lpi.  The TDP-459 platesetter can image up to 60 plates per hour and output plates up to 18.1” x 20.7”. It is an excellent choice for Thermographers who want an eco-friendly and high-volume platemaking solution for consistent single/spot color printing plates.
