Presstek Inc. Key Developments

Presstek LLC Unveils New Direct Inkjet Plate Technology

Presstek LLC unveiled JT, a new direct inkjet plate technology. The Presstek JT aluminum plate is designed to be imaged on Epson inkjet printers with the printer's standard ink cartridges. The JT plate enables for a low cost, easy-to-use CTP solution with an extremely small physical and environmental footprint. After imaging, plates go directly to press for impressions of 5,000 or less. A simple post-bake step is added for an impression count between 5,000 and 20,000. Many small and medium size commercial and in-plant printers need a way to produce plates more efficiently and economically. Since commercialization, Presstek's JT Direct Inkjet CTP solution has been successfully installed at customer locations in North America and Europe. Another advantage of the JT Direct Inkjet plate and CTP solution is its versatility. Customers are able to image plates on the Epson and immediately turn around and use the Epson for standard inkjet printing without any modifications or adjustments to the system. The JT Direct Inkjet plate and CTP solution is ideal for shops requiring up to 175 lpi image quality for their 1-, 2-, or 4-color jobs and whose production volumes are low- to mid-range. A wide variety of package options are available. Customers can choose from packages that come complete with an Epson 3880, 7900, or 9900 printer, the JT-RIP, computer, oven and starter kit, to mid-range or basic packages that include virtually any combination thereof.
