The Netherlands–based basysPrint announces its new series of 4-page and 8-page UV platesetters. The new UV-Setter 450x and 850x Series opens cross application possibilities that consist of print effects such as spot varnishes, hot-foil stamping and embossing, as well as processes like diecutting and screen printing.
The new devices extend the UV-setter line to image UV plates for offset printing; coating plates for spot varnish; photoengraving magnesium or copper plates (up to 10mm thick) for hot-foil stamping and embossing; screen meshes for silkscreen printing; and dies for flexible diecutting.
In addition, the UV-Setter 850x Series delivers higher productivity through a dual plate loading capability that allows to process two plates (up to a maximum size of 445 x 1150 mm) at the same time. The system can image up to 120 plates per hour (470 x 650 mm size). With the new graphical user interface, printers can manage and control their UV-Setters remotely, including with smartphone and tablet type devices.
The offers options from completely manual and semi-automatic versions to fully automatic multi-cassette systems capable of accepting up to five different plate formats from five cassettes, each holding 100 plates. basysPrint UV-Setters have a flatbed design and Dynamic Autofocus technology, allowing them to expose a wide range of different plate types.
UV plate technology offers wide processing tolerances, high run length stability without baking, low energy consumption, and ecofriendly processing chemistry that can be poured down the drain after use.
The new UV-Setter 450x and 850x Series will be commercially available on November 1, 2011.
