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.
