DirectJet CTS Model S-800
DIRECTJET CTS "FILMLESS" SCREEN MAKING SYSTEM
The DirectJET CTS system images digitally prepared artwork
directly to the emulsion, eliminating the use of film to create
screens. There are many benefits of going "filmless." The first
and foremost benefit is the immediate savings a company realizes by
eliminating the use of film to produce screens as well as the labor,
filing, and chemicals costs associated with film production.
Artwork is saved on a computer's hard drive or on discs that take
minimal space. No longer is there wasted time searching for film
in a library of hundreds of folders or wasted time looking for a
misfiled or lost piece of film. No labor is needed for film
retouching and inspection since there is no dusty film or
dirty glass causing pinholes.
Using the DirectJETCTS System also eliminates half the steps in
the set up process - allowing you to deliver screens to press "just in
time". Registration from color to color is within .005 mm of accuracy
resulting in precise imaging from screen to screen and faster set ups
on press. If a screen gets damaged on press, the replacement screen can
be produced as the next in line on the DirectJET and be in perfect
registration with the screen it replaces and the other screens that are
printing and most importantly, your press is back running in no time.
The DirectJET uses environmentally friendly, UV masking, water
based ink that gets applied directly to the emulsion. Compared to
other systems and to the cost of film, the DirectJET CTS imaging
cost ranges from 4-15¢ per square foot (on average 4¢ for process
color and 15¢ for spot). You also produce high resolution screens
and hold dots in the 2%-3% range in the highlight and shadow areas
that tend to get blown away in film imaging, particularly
with textiles. The DirectJET will RIP at varying dpi (720 x
720, 720 x 1080, 1080 x 1080) up to 120 lpi.
The DirectJet is available in four standard sizes that are geared
for textiles, POP and signage, heat transfers, membrane switches and
