    Default negative film output altrenatives

    the current option for an 80% cover negative film is to go ink jet with the right combination of the right ink, IJ film substrate, IJ printer and RIP.
    You can get reasonable 120 line screen negatives, you have to manage your printer well to get a 133 line screen neg.
    not all films work well and ink is important to ensure that you do not burn through the DMax area...
    what level of resolution and what film size do you currently use?

    We have a number of customers that still need to produce films and cannot move to a CTP only solution. For these customers an OYO Thermal Film Imagesetter is the best solution.

    The OYO imagesetters are sturdy and reliable, but best of all they produce great looking output with excellent density plus they do not require any chemistry. You can find out more about the OYO devices at OYO Instruments | Welcome or Harlequin RIP, Harlequin RIPs, Software RIP, NEW! Harlequin Software RIP Version 8.3

    If you ever need anything, I image film daily and ship all over the country. I image 4 and 7 mil film using our Avantra 44S. Max size 35.6" x 44.5". It's usually same day service if we receive the files before noon pacific time.

    Default Ink Jet Film

    We have been successful at creating a system that uses an Epson Stylus Pro inkjet printer and our specialized Mitsubishi Imaging Inkjet Clearproof 180 clear Film and a RIP. This makes pretty good film equivalent up to 133 LPI. Email me and I can send you more info. There is some cost at the beginning to set this up but it is pretty economical once you get going. It depends on your total film volume

    Default Inkjet

    We still output film using our 16 year old herk. But are testing film output with our canon 8000. The film is called novadot surejet. We image a 1 bit tiff on our harelquin her rip and output this to our canon. I've not got the tints right yet. But think we can achieve 150#

    Hope this helps link helps

    I never had any problems with dielines imaged onto mylar using inkjet. If you look at how a die is built and used, imaging is the least of one's worries for alignment.

    For spot UV Roland makes a system that can cut the coating blanket directly. You send the file to the device just like going to an inkjet device. I believe Gerber can do this also.
