    Luxel T-6000 evolution

    Fujifilm's own RIPs (Celebrant and XMF) use a PIF interface (PCI card) to connect the RIP PC to the exposing engine. Also Fujifilm's Celebrant Gateway (1-bit TIF spooler) uses the same PIF interface. Older PIF boards were for 5v PCI, the current type can be used in both 5v and 3,3v slots. This...

    Luxel T-6000 evolution

    BB: Luxel T-6000 E was based on the Screen PT-R4100. That model was phased-out in 2006 being replaced by Luxel T-6300 (Screen's PT-R4300 E). These "entry-level" CTP's exposed with 16 laser diodes, so productivity is in the region of 11 plates/h. Luxel T-6000 MkIII was based on the Screen...

    Screening for printing smooth skintones

    Screening for printing smooth skintones Having read all the responses in this thread I'd add the following. The human eye can resolve at best 28 line pairs/mm (ref. Schlapfer & Widmer, UGRA); that's why 150 lpi (60l/cm) screen was the original choice for monochrome printing, because its 30 line...

    Need help in Fuji Celebrant v6.0

    You should now seriously consider migrating your Celebrant (Adobe CPSI based) to XMF (Adobe PDF Print Engine based). If you have a Celebrant RIP you can either transition to XMF Processor (RIP) or up to the full XMF Workflow (4-up or complete, depending on your output format). If you have...

    Possible to spot varnish a low-volume run?

    Fujifilm showed a digital varnisher at Drupa, provisionally called "Emblaze"; an inkjet device able to apply spot or flood varnish, matt, silk or gloss effects using just the one liquid and just one pass, for finishing offset or digitally printed sheets. It was said to be intended to to do as...

    XMF is not a true workflow

    XMF is a true workflow XMF is a true workflow Interesting comment. The word "workflow" is a compound noun; the words "work" and "flow" are both nouns and verbs. The word has many connotations. In order to use a "workflow" you have to know what it is that you want it to do. If you can't do...

    bookwork with work & turn section

    bookwork with work & turn section Yes, in XMF you can use different templates for different formes within the same job. You can put or pull the 4-page section anywhere in the order. Are you trying to use XMF without anyone having shown you how? regards, Barry

    line screen indicator

    line screen indicator You don't actually even need a line screen indicator, to do what you want to do. All you need is some old film separations of the screen rulings you want to test for. If you have a filmsetter you can make up some screen tints at the various screen rulings to do the job...

    Flat belt or Drum CTP

    Flat belt or Drum CTP You don't say what sort of RIP and screening you'll be using, or what maximum plate size you'll be producing. If you want to expose 175/200 lpi screen, with conventional screening methods, then you'll need at least 2400 dpi or 2437 dpi or 2540 dpi resolution to get...

    chemistry free plates (research)

    Semantics; some of the contributors to this string could well have advised Bill Clinton how to answer sticky questions. Is water chemistry? It is when in the press fount, when there are about 5% additives included. I think the term "chemistry free" should really mean that, without any...

    Inkjet Presses

    I don't think it s a question of either/or, rather one of Offset AND Inkjet, or Inkjet AND Xerography (in the same way as it has been Offset AND Xerography up to now. It's interesting to see that the inkjet offerings ar Drupa were not even trying to address the 2-page sheetfed market place where...

    New Fuji Plates

    Pro-T plate life Pro-T plate life Pro-T is a negative working plate, which means that the exposed areas are the printing image areas. If dot's are not holding, then in the first instance I would check your CTP device, that you are getting enough energy to the plate. What CTP device are you...

    Crosfield Drum Scanner

    Crosfield Scantex was esentially a Celsis 630 scanner unit, but was a special model which included a proprietary Scitex interface board, so it could only be interfaced onto Scitex systems. If I remember correctly they were painted black to match the Scitex livery. --Barry--

    FM Screening for the Newspaper

    Re: FM Screening for the Newspaper I remember Niko Ruokosuo did a paper on FM for newspaper, which I think was published by IFRA many years ago. That at least seemed to show that there should be printing quality advantages printing using FM screening on newsprint. One of the arguments was that...
