Xitron’s development of the USB-SCSI interface grants new life to thousands of expensive computer-to-plate devices being rendered obsolete because of outdated and unsupported technology. These devices image printing plates for the offset printing industry. They receive imaging data through Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) cards, which are no longer being manufactured or supported.
Every second of CtP downtime will cost your business money. If you are currently running a Kodak, Creo, or Heidelberg Trendsetter system, your equipment may be susceptible to a few risks that are easily avoidable.
Many offset printers go without a service contract for their CtP system. This is usually because they are concerned about paying for service that they don’t use.
Service contracts can lower CtP downtime. A contract offers faster support and better access to parts. But is it really worth it? We believe that our customers should get what they pay for, so we’ve developed a new kind of CtP service contract. Our new service contract options give you credit for unused service.

CtP systems need to be serviced every six months to maintain proper operation. Regular preventative maintenance (PM) is essential to avoid machine failure and stay in production.
Failure to regularly clean, oil and change filters on your CtP can allow dirt and debris to reach the laser element. This can cause the machine to malfunction or even burn out the laser head of a machine. Is it time to service your CtP equipment? Take advantage of our 25% discount for first-time customers on our PM service and keep your equipment running trouble-free. Read more “Prevent down-time with regular CtP maintenance”
