Heidelberg Prosetter - Direct To Plate

Heidelberg Prosetter - Direct To Plate

Over 13 years of experience in internal drum imaging has enabled Heidelberg to develop the Prosetter range, a generation of violet platesetters with outstanding quality and reliability. The internal drum architecture delivers the precision that you have come to expect from Heidelberg. In all the Prosetter models, the printing plate is precisely aligned in a half shell and held in place by a vacuum during imaging. The laser is moved along this half shell and images the plate one dot at a time. The laser spot is guided via a rotating prism, delivering precision down to thousandths of a millimeter. This is made possible by the air bearing, which is frictionless. Fitting the Prosetter with an SCL or MCL makes it even more user-friendly and reliable. Operator intervention is reduced to a minimum and you can produce nonstop for many hours.
