Screeny direct UV exposure with Luescher CtP unit
Screeny conventional screen printing plates can be imaged in the printer’s existing digital workflow, for example using a CtP unit from Lüscher AG. This type of equipment enables the CtP workflow to be extended beyond existing printing applications to screen printing. An analogue film is no longer required, conventional exposing is no longer necessary.
Lüscher devices can be equipped with various types of lasers (405nm, 830nm, 940nm) at the same time. This enables the following printing plates to be imaged:
- Offset plates (conventional and thermal imaging)
- Flexographic plates with a LAMS layer
- Letterpress plates
- Digital films
- Conventional Screeny printing plates including Screeny S-Line
- Screeny Digital plates
In order to achieve perfect register accuracy, the Lüscher devices are equipped with register pins. It is also possible to retrofit them into existing devices. The Screeny format is fixed using a vacuum system.
