CTP Units

About CTP Units

CRON’s breakthrough family of commercial platesetters redefines the future of CTP. Balancing quality, cost, and efficiency, CRON CTP enables you to satisfy varying throughput and quality demands while enjoying big savings on long-term operating costs.

Latest Generation Laser Head Design

Integrated laser head unit with 830nm wavelength diodes delivers higher precision, sharper imaging with highly stable dot output. This technology delivers consistent performance and quality, affording long life, easy maintenance, and simple upgrades. The redundant laser design allows plate making even if a diode fails.

Automatic 3-Point Registration and Lead Screw Guide Assembly

Our side-gauge drive system replaces belt positioning with a lead screw that achieves more accurate and repeatable plate loading and registration – eliminating time-consuming tension adjustments.

Patented Imaging Drum Design

High precision u-level light drum features class-leading drum surface flatness. The oxidation hardened drum is more durable and longer lasting. A built-in vacuum maintains consistent pressures with large or small plates, and the triple dynamic drum balancing system allows self-reposition with no operator input. The tail clamp into the drum.

Plate-Loading System Design

Pinch roller design allows for more reliable plate positioning. The independent pressing wheel assembly adapts to varying plate sizes and thicknesses with no engineering adjustment needed.

Dependable and Efficient Operations

The high precision, linear magnetic rail scanning system provides smooth positive travel, resulting in a dependable operation. A quieter, more energy effi cient and maintenance-free large flow vacuum pump system can help save energy costs.
CRON thermal CTPs meet the most stringent demands for print quality and productivity with clean, accurate imag-ing, precision dot reproduction, a tonal range of 1%-99%, and up to 2,800 dpi resolution. CRON delivers cost-effec-tive solutions to satisfy the most challenging prepress workflow requirements with our line-up of versatile devices.
