Increase Productivity and Profitability with Chemistry-free CTP
The Presstek Dimension Pro 800 eight-page CTP
system delivers performance, ease-of-use and
low cost of operation to make your business
more capable, profitable and competitive.
Combined with Presstek’s chemistry-free CTP
plates, a Dimension Pro 800 offers your business
multiple advantages over other platemaking
systems. The amount of time, labor and materials
required for platemaking are significantly
reduced, while accuracy, consistency and
pressroom performance improve.
A Dimension Pro 800 is a cost-effective and
reliable choice for printers looking to:
■ Streamline platemaking operations
■ Better respond to customer needs
■ Lower the costs of platemaking
■ Operate in a more environmentally
■ Fully capitalize on the efficiency
of CTP workflow
Be More Capable
The Dimension Pro 800 is easy to operate and
its fast turnaround of plates enables you to
process more jobs and respond to short lead
times and last minute changes. Presstek’s
chemistry-free thermal plates provide
outstanding image quality and improve your
pressroom performance while reducing total
cost. The Dimension Pro 800 images plates
in sizes from one page up to eight pages.
Be More Profitable
Presstek CTP eliminates all the costs
associated with the chemical processing of plates. By using
Presstek chemistry-free CTP plates, you remove timeconsuming
steps, reduce labor, and conserve valuable floor
space. You eliminate expensive remakes caused by variables
in chemistry, exposure and human error. With the fewest steps
to press-ready plates, your prepress and pressroom personnel
can perform more tasks every shift. You also minimize the
environmental costs of platemaking.
A Dimension Pro 800 is a robust and reliable system,
engineered for easy maintenance and maximum uptime.
Be More Competitive
Platemaking with a Dimension Pro 800 is accurate and
reliable. Fast response times and lower prepress
costs enable you to better capitalize
on your digital workflow. Jobs
in the queue are imaged on
Presstek chemistry-free plates;
then the plates are washed with
water and they are ready to print.
There’s no faster or more efficient
way to produce the high quality
plates you need.
Imaging plates from 10.6" x 9" up to 33" x 45", the
Dimension Pro 800 is versatile. With fast, lower-cost
platemaking, it helps meet demand for short-run
printing and fast turnaround, while also delivering
the plates you need for long-runs and high quality.
Dimension Pro 800 Features:
Easy, Streamlined CTP: A Dimension Pro 800 fits any
existing prepress environment. Using Presstek chemistry-free CTP,
you will produce high quality press-ready plates in just two easy
steps. Only a water wash is required after imaging and the plates
are ready to print. No chemical processing, gumming or baking
is required. The need to purchase, store, handle and dispose of
noxious chemistry is eliminated.
Reliable and Proven Performance: The Dimension Pro
supports up to 2400 dpi resolution and 200 line screen imaging
with a 25 micron spot size.
The imaging head employs multiple-laser technology. In the
unlikely event that one or several emitters should fail, power is
automatically increased to the others to ensure continuous
operation without any change in resolution or image quality.
Presstek Chemistry-free CTP
Presstek’s chemistry-free CTP plates deliver the
reliability and performance of traditional grained
anodized aluminum plates without the problems and
expense of chemical plate processing. Daylight-safe
Presstek plates require only a simple wash with water
and they are ready for printing.
Presstek’s exclusive Pro graining provides exceptional
ink/water latitude, resulting in faster roll-up and stable
color throughout the press run.
Superior Image Control: Using a combination of pin mounts
and optical sensing, registration is automatic, eliminating operator
intervention and error. Dynamic autofocus reproduces subtle
tonal variations and eliminates hot spots. Automatic clamping
adjusts to fit any size plate (see specifications).
Semiautomatic Operation: Convenient top loading and
unloading; produces up to 11 full-size plates per hour using
Presstek Anthem Pro, or 15 plates per hour using Presstek
Aurora Pro, with minimal operator involvement.

Low Cost of Ownership: With chemistry-free CTP, the labor,
space, equipment and materials required for platemaking are
minimized, so you save time, money and resources.
Through the use of 1-bit TIFF files, Dimension Pro systems are
compatible with a wide-range of industry standard workflows.
Presstek’s integrated digital solutions include workflow solutions
that optimize the performance of your Presstek equipment and
increase the productivity of your prepress department.
