Speedy 56

Thermal CTP

Understood to be the world’s only dedicated B3 thermal metal computer to plate system.


Using an external drum and a 32 diode laser array, the Speedy 56 is capable of imaging one plate at high resolution in approximately 3 minutes.


The Speedy 56 also includes an in-line processor to develop the plates after imaging.
