The offset printing industry is more competitive than ever.
Trade tariffs, plant consolidations, easy access to global markets and the continued migration of content from print to digital devices are just a few of the challenges facing printers today. In this tough environment, finding a performance edge and lowering costs is vitally important.
CTP plate costs add up.
There is often a lot of savings potential in switching from one type of CtP plate to a lower cost or higher performance option. There is also quite a bit to consider when selecting the right plate for your production needs. You may need to invest in new equipment and train staff. If you plan on using your existing equipment, plate profiles need to be programmed into the CtP System and calibrations need to be performed.

For many years now, Computer-to-Plate or CTP Platesetters have been revolutionizing the printing industry.
As computers have evolved, computer to plate technology has allowed for the much more efficient production of enormous quantities of items like books, newspapers, magazines, printed materials and packaging. Digital CTP imaging incorporates innovative technologies that help ensure consistently high quality, even when printing large volumes. The process is less labor-intensive than traditional plate making methods and plates are less costly to produce. As the CTP systems have developed, VLF CTP systems have come to a point where they can offer the widest range of digital plate making format options.

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.
