1. Proven 830nm laser diode technology with automated imaging design
McLantis CTP ensures very clear and sharp dot and high run length. Day light operation. Failure of any channel of laser diode will not stop the CTP. The CTP can use the remaining channels to work. Therefore, McLantis CTP ensures continuous production and maintenance convenience.
2. Dynamic autofocus
The performance of the platesetter is mostly decided by precise focus control. Plate output quality is derived from the consistent laser spot precision. McLantis CTP utilizes the third generation dynamic focusing technology. The precise distance measuring system can detect the subtle change in distance of 0.1 microns. Driven by the voice coil motor, McLantis CTP can track the changes in the plate surface to adjust the longitudinal position of the lens, to ensure a constant distance between the lens. McLantis dynamic autofocus can also avoid the fine dust from the surface of the photosensitive drum caused by blue spots, blue halo problem. Each spot is exposed in the best focal length exposure to ensure the consistent, clear and sharp dot.
3. Unique dot control technology
McLantis unique graphical calibration technology can perfectly reproduce rectangle, eliminating dimensional deviation caused by different plate thickness. McLantis CTP can make precise compensation for dot gain problem caused by the laser spot size. McLantis CTP can perfect perform 1% to 99% step. One single McLantis CTP plate registration accuracy is 5 microns. It can reach 15 microns after calibrating with two different McLantis CTP’s.
4. External drum exposure
McLantis CTP utilizes DDS technology to ensure the phase jittering frequency within 1/32 pixel, to ensure straight and smooth vertical and horizontal line. McLantis drum system balance block can automatically adjust to the new location up to only 5 seconds to adjust, to switch instantaneously for various sizes of plates. In addition, McLantis CTP utilizes the printing press type to curve and clamp the plate, exposes consistent high quality dots.
5. Automatic energy balance
The temperature control system inside the laser constant shielding box can automatically precise temperature to plus or minus 0.1 degrees. And at a precise temperature condition, light intensity can be automatically calibrated every 8 hours to ensure the consistence of the laser energy.
6. Top quality core components
McLantis CTP is incorporated with the world's top brand laser diode and top grade AO grade roller screw and ball rails. Precision ceramic surface of the external drum with swing beat less than 8 microns, never worn. Highly reliability of the plate clamp system with two hundred thousand times more fatigue testing and more than 4 million hours record of non-plate-flying.
High performance dedusting system can gather the dust during plate outputing and collected in the dust filter bag, not directly emitted into the air.
7. Easy to operate
McLantis CTP platesetter is dedicated to any CTP workflow with perfect seamless connectivity.
