Avalon 4-up series

B2-sized CtP system

The Avalon N4 thermal CtP system brings commercial and packaging printers the automation and imaging capabilities of larger devices in a compact format. It handles plates up to 830 x 680 mm, with a maximum throughput level up to 21 plates per hour.

The Avalon N4’s streamlined operation and uncompromising image quality will allow you to handle the most demanding jobs, with more profit. The Avalon N4 comes with an optional inline punching system and standard Ethernet connection, providing direct interfacing with ECO3’s Apogee workflow. Plate or plate cassette loading is easy and can be done while the platesetter is operational. The N4 AL-S and N4 AL-M plate loaders offer maximum convenience and automation.

Reliable high-quality plate imaging

Featuring state-of-the-art multi-channel fiber-coupled thermal lasers, the Avalon N4 offers excellent imaging quality.

High plate productivity

The Avalon N4 combines an imaging speed of up to 21 plates per hour with a choice of autoloaders.

Part of a total solution

We provide you with more than just a computer-to-plate engine. Our complete solution can include the optimum plate, clean-out unit, integration with the Apogee workflow and of course service.

Multi-channel fiber-coupled thermal laser-diode technology

The imaging system provides precise dot reproduction on plate for high-quality print results. The Avalon N4 has 32 channels, resulting in a maximum plate output up to 21pph

Plate registration with edge detection system

The plate registration on the external drum is based on two fixed pins combined with optical plate edge detection. This assures consistently accurate imaging without the requirement of additional registration punching.

Process automation options

A single- or multi-cassette loader improves the plate loading efficiency considerably. Before loading the plate on the external drum, an inline press punch can be activated. After the have been imaged, they are guided into an online processor or a clean-out unit The cassettes can be loaded while the platesetter is operational.

Manual plate loading with standard pre-staging

The operator can load a plate while imaging another one and then leave the unit unattended. When the first plate leaves the external drum, the second one automatically enters the system. The operator does not need to intervene.

Small plate size option

This option enables you to use smaller plates size – 270/324 x 278 mm. For this purpose, two extra metal pins are added to enable registration with plate edge detection.
