Fujifilm announces new generation of high quality, easy to operate thermal platesetters

The Luxel T-X and T-S platesetters use advanced multi-channel spatial light modulator technology to achieve outstanding quality, exposure stability, and high productivity.

Fujifilm today announces the launch of a new range of Luxel thermal platesetters for offset plate production. The range is compact and easy to use and features five models to ensure suitability for diverse customer requirements. Manual loading, single cassette and multi-cassette options are all available.

The five models in the range consist of two Luxel T-X (high speed) models and three Luxel T-S (standard) models.

Job and system management is performed through a simple PC interface via a fibre-optic cable, allowing settings to be viewed on a large screen. Plates can be loaded into multiple cassettes, aside from the cassette in use, allowing for continuous operation, and 8mm clamps with an option for 6mm on the T-X model ensure compatibility with a wide range of web and sheet-fed presses.

A remote maintenance service allows the monitoring of system status from off site, along with guidance on timely maintenance and the replacement of consumables.

Sean Lane, Product Management and Support Manager, Offset Products says: “We’re delighted to be able to bring this enhanced platesetter to market. With its compact size, easy operability, and imaging improvements, it’s designed to add value to offset print businesses and improve ROI. We’re proud to continue to support offset print businesses and help them to boost efficiencies in a challenging market.”
