CTP for the Choosing
In addition to choices of imaging heads (UV or thermal), CRON-ECRM also enables users to select productivity requirements by modifying the number of imaging diodes. Beginning with 16 diodes (in five different diode configurations), users can choose up to 96 diodes. The more diodes the faster the system images plates. Furthermore, by utilizing individual fiber coupled diodes, users are ensured of redundancy and will not face lost production in the event of a laser failure.

Users can also select their level of automation. These new platesetters can be configured for manual, semi-automatic and fully-automatic operation (single or multiple cassette), as well as online with an optional in-line punching system. CRON-ECRM offers an in-field upgrade path for your level of automation preferences.
