Mitsubishi Offset Litho Press
A Graphics Printer was undertaking work on an electrical system when an electrician introduced a voltage spike into the system causing significant damage to the 40 inch Litho Press, the company called in Mitsubishi to resolve the problem. Mitsubishi identified the Toyo Denki 37kW VF16S AC Drive as the main fault,and observed that an overload voltage had caused significant damage to its circuitry. To compound the problem these drives are now obsolete, so it either had to be completely refitted (which Mitsubishi reckoned would have taken over a week) or the drive had to be repaired quickly. Mitsubishi and the printer elected to call out NDC. A Service Engineer was despatched and had the drive stripped out and taken for repair. Within a few days NDC had the obsolete drive repaired and re-installed, our Service Engineer and the Mitsubishi engineer then ran the Litho Press through a series of tests to prove the system and that the repair was robust. After the testing proved the repair met with the Mitsubishi specification, the Litho Press was ready to resume its job. Both the customer and Mitsubishi were delighted to get the Litho press running again whilst mitigating expensive downtime and a costly and time consuming refit. It just goes to prove that using NDC on your repairs will save you both time and money.
The Avalon N4 thermal CtP system Precise Dot Reproduction Avalon N4's accurate thermal imaging system is designed to consistently reproduce the finest dots on plate, which results in highly detailed results on press. Chemistry-free Plate Compatibility The Avalon N4 is compatible with the Azura TS chemistry-free plates. They provide a more efficient alternative to traditional thermal plates. The Azura TS completely eliminates hazardous chemicals for more consistent imaging and also reduces the number of production steps, helping to streamline your workflow.
ECO-FRIENDLY, CHEMISTRY-FREE PLATE
The reliable and consistent quality that our clients deserve: with Azura TS, the chemical-free plate system. No Processing Variables Azura TS plates can easily be added to any workflow. Because they use no chemical processing, they are safer, simpler and more consistent for everyone to use. And they provide the convenience of daylight handling, allowing them to be used in any prepress environment. High-quality Results on Press Azura TS plates provide 2 - 98% dpi screen tints at 200 lpi depending on imaging conditions, yielding excellent results on press. They also give you up to 100,000 impressions depending on printing conditions for high productivity. ThermoFuse Technology During imaging, particles within the Azura TS plate are fused together by the thermal laser to create an image. A physical process then bonds the image to the substrate, with absolutely no chemical processing involved. A dedicated cleaning unit uses gum to finish the plate and clean the un-fused areas, leaving you with a press-ready Azura TS plate.
