Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is expanding the
Suprasetter A52 and Suprasetter A75 models of its Suprasetter
family for thermal printing plate production. Since October 2009, a
higher plate throughput has resulted in a 58 percent increase in
productivity. From IPEX 2010, Heidelberg will be complementing its
Auto Top Loader (ATL) for fully automated plate feed of one plate
format with the new Dual Top Loader (DTL) that enables fully
automated plate feed of two different plate sizes.
Both units - the CtP platesetter and the optional automation
module (ATL or DTL) - can fit into a space of just 2.6 square
meters (28 square feet) because the ATL/DTL is placed directly on
top of the imaging unit. This space-saving concept is unique in the
Another new feature is the additional imaging option "High
Resolution 5080dpi". This enables special security printing
applications such as banknotes, guilloches, and certificates to be
imaged in maximum resolution.
All models can also be fully integrated into the Prinect
print shop workflow.
Ecological printing - Suprasetter entry-level models protect the
Compared to rival systems, the entry-level models of the
Suprasetter series demonstrate above-average environmental
credentials. Consuming 0.7 kilowatts per hour, the Suprasetter A52
and A75 platesetters require around five times less power and
generate around five times less waste heat than comparable models
from other manufacturers. As a result, there is often no need for
an air-conditioning system. Combined with the low power
consumption, this generates savings of around EUR 2,700 per year
compared to rival systems in the same market segment, and also
protects the environment. As these machines are not generally
sensitive to fluctuations in humidity - which can lie between 30
and 70 percent - there is often no call for an additional,
energy-intensive air humidification system. All Suprasetter models
can be operated using both conventional and chemical-free printing
plates, including Heidelberg's own brand Saphira consumables range.
The Suprasetter A52 and A75 models from Heidelberg
are now available with the new Dual Top Loader (DTL), which enables
fully automated plate feed for two different plate sizes.
