HighWater Cobra CtP
The HighWater Cobra is a manual load-unload CtP engine designed specifically for the B3 commercial print market. It exposes violet metal plates at high resolution, using high precision internal drum imaging optics and a 60mW laser - a laser capable of imaging Agfa's forthcoming processless violet plate making it a sensible future proofed investment.
The plate is placed directly into the drum by the operator, and located in the registration system. Vacuum is then applied to hold the plate in perfect register while it is imaged at a resolution of 2540 dpi (100 dpmm) at a speed of 6mm per second. A 2-up GTO plate takes only one and a half minutes to image, regardless of content.
