Fujifilm Javelin 8900E/S/Z

The flagship of Fujifilm's 8-up CTP devices.

The Javelin 8900E/S/Z thermal platesetter series supports a wide range of plates formats and types, from 4-page plates up to 8-page plate sizes.

Overview

The Javelin HD 8900 features a next-generation Grating Light Valve – (GLV) thermal imaging technology with a 512 or 1024-channel exposure head. Aimed at companies requiring high throughput at superior levels of image quality and consistency, the Javelin HD 8900Z can image at an impressive rate of 60+ plates per hour.

For companies that require a lower price point, the Javelin 8900E images at 33 plates per hour or the Javelin HD 8900S images at 43 plate per hour. To ensure that a Javelin HD 8900 investment is protected for years of production, both the E and S models can be upgraded in the field to 43 and 60+ plates per hour, respectively.

Computer-to-Plate Printing Using GLV

Grating Light Valve™ (GLV) is a remarkable optical micro-electromechanical system. Because of their efficiency and versatility, GLV modules have been developed for high-definition television monitors, electronic cinema projectors, commercial flight simulator displays, and computer-to-plate devices.

When used for digital imaging, GLV technology provides a fast and ultra-precise method of transferring digital images directly onto a printing plate. GLV-based laser diode exposure heads feature 512 channels (E,S) or 1024 channels (Z) of imaging laser that exposes plates in a wide swath. The imaging width of these exposure heads broadens the area that can be imaged with a single turn of the platesetter drum at low drum rotation speed.

Why is thermal computer-to-plate technology the system of choice for so many successful companies? Why is thermal computer-to-plate technology the system of choice for so many successful companies?

There's no doubt about thermal CTP's reliable high-quality output. It is unrivaled for its superb sharp dots. Whenever quality is crucial, the natural choice is thermal. Its consistency for long run lengths and easy daylight handling are also important for many printers. And the bottom line is always about keeping the presses running.

Overview

The Javelin 8600 Series are state-of-the-art thermal CTP recorders. They deliver the versatility and productivity you need to keep your presses running. With the optional Javelin single cassette or multi cassette autoloader, users can enjoy hundreds of plates being imaged without operator intervention and hours of unattended operation.

All offer optional inline plate punching for perfect on-press register and faster makeready times, as well as our acclaimed autoloader options for unattended plate loading. If you like the idea of running your pressroom at full capacity, you’ll love the Javelin 8600N Series.

Unrivaled Print Quality

The Javelin 8600N-S and 8600N-Z features a 64-channel light source and, combined with a high speed rotating drum, provides output up to 22 plates per hour. For a more economical choice, the Javelin 8600N-E utilizes a 32-channel light source and is capable of outputting up to 14 plates per hour.

Experience the exceptional screening reproduction that only thermal plate recorders can deliver: there are three advanced models to suit all of your production requirements.

Productivity Upgrade

To meet your expanding production requirements, we have made it easy to upgrade the Javelin 8600N-E to the 8600N-S by simply replacing certain key parts. This can be done on-site and eliminates excess costs and increases operating efficiency.
