basysPrint Embraces Asia Pacific Growth
Developing market opportunities maximised by leading platesetting solutions at KIPES 2012
In partnership with local dealer S&I Systems, basysPrint will demonstrate how its single cassette 865 VF UV-Setter and multiple cassette 867 UV-Setter offer customers the choice of exposure resolutions of 1500dpi or 2400dpi. They will see how the unique flatbed design enables digital imaging of a wide variety of plate sizes while dual plate loading offers production speeds of up to 145 plates per hour.
A key feature is the modular design: customers can start with the basic manual version and easily upgrade to either a semi-automatic or fully-automatic model depending on their needs and demands.
Other features include the unique Dynamic Autofocus system that handles plate undulation - even for substrate thicknesses up to 10mm - and a new remote monitoring system allowing management and control via smartphones or tablet-type devices.
The UV-Setters deliver increased flexibility and enable additional revenue streams to be generated. Christophe Lievens, basysPrint's Director of Sales and Marketing, explains: "As well as imaging UV plates for offset printing, the UV platesetters have a wide range of uses from imaging coating plates for spot varnish printing to all kinds of screen printing applications and even image dies for flexible die-cutting."
He adds: "We are delighted that, with our valued distributor S&I Systems, we are able to showcase all these capabilities to key markets at KIPES."
