Image both Film and Plates on Mitsubishi Imaging Inc.'s Chemistry-Free Thermal DigiPlaters

Our Thermal DigiPlaters (TDP) are truly green machines. Low power consumption and no chemistry, ribbons, toner, ink or processing required make them the environmentally friendly upgrade from analog and electrostatic plates.

Thermal DigiPlaters can image both film and plates. Media options include TDP-R175 paper-based plates, IFL and IFS graphic arts thermal film. The dual functionality answers a range of print production needs from Graphic Arts to Screen and Flexo applications and more. So whether you are printing t-shirts, images and text on cups and mugs, party invitations, metal plates or newspapers, the TDP is your reliable easy to maintain and operate CTP of choice.

Thermal DigiPlaters are best suited for 2 to 4 color applications at resolutions of 1204 dpi. The systems use Mitsubishi Imaging's patented thermal fusing technology to create high-contrast images on plates or film without chemical development, wash-off or ablation.

Thermal DigiPlaters are available in three configurations: TDP 324II, TDP 459II, and TDP 750. The TDP 324II and 459II can be used for 2-up jobs and support films widths up to 12” and 18.1” respectively. They output up to 75 plates and 82 films per hour. The TDP 750 can process 4-up jobs and handle film widths up to 26” wide and 48” long with outputs reaching 55 plates or 60 films per hour. Plates for all units have run lengths up to 5,000 impressions.

Thermal DigiPlate CTP systems are ideal for small to mid-sized printers who want a versatile environmentally friendly option for maximum productivity and increased profitability.
