Krause to highlight PlateStream violet CTP at IFRA conference
Germany- based Krause- Biagosch will highlight its top-selling PlateStream with violet laser at the IFRA World Publishing Expo 2018/ DCX Digital Content Expo, taking place Oct. 9 to Oct. 11 in Berlin.
Krause-Biagosch, based in Bielefeld, is part of the Horstmann Group.
The company highlights “Made in Germany” on its website.
Among the suppliers of CTP systems’ clients or references are the New York Daily News, New York Post, Philadelphia I nquirer and Spokesman-Review, along with numerous papers in Europe and elsewhere.
The PlateStream “represents stateof- the- art technology for future oriented and integrated CTP production,” the company claims.
The PlateStream loads from left or right with trolleys or pallets with no extra space need, the company says.
A panorama cassette is also available and holds up to 30 panorama plates.
Small housing is a key to the product, with PlateStream Incorporating the “highest CTP specification at the smallest floor space.” Components include Krause Juwel Ultra 3.0 electronics plus the TIFFStream board “to run the machine with highest quality at full speed.”
To match these components with high-speed mechanics, Krause says it designed the Snap-Lock register plate alignment and the Mikro- DirectDrive system that allows for
almost continuous i maging of plates, according to the company.
At t he I FRA World Publishing Expo, the Krause team will exhibit and demonstrate the PlateStream with BlueFin LowChem cleanout unit including the AutoClean option.
Krause has a history stretching back to an 1855 paper- cutting machine in Leipzig, providing institutional expertise that bears on the current climate, the company says.
“Since in today’s business environment, the retrofit of existing systems is in the focus of a lot of customers, and since Krause has developed modular systems for decades, we can offer corresponding updates and retrofits for our high quality Krause platesetters and processors in order to extend their working life,” says Stefan BekeBramkamp, sales and marketing director at Krause-Biagosch.
