Fujifilm announces new generation of thermal platesetters

Two Luxel T-X and three Luxel T-S models

The five models in the range consist of two Luxel T-X (high-speed) and three Luxel T-S (standard).

Fujifilm on 28 February announced the launch of a new range of Luxel thermal platesetters for offset plate production. The range is compact and easy to use and features five models to ensure suitability for diverse customer requirements. Manual loading, single cassette and multi-cassette options are all available.

The five models in the range consist of two Luxel T-X (high-speed) models and three Luxel T-S (standard) models.

Job and system management is performed through a simple PC interface via a fiber-optic cable, allowing settings to be viewed on a large screen. Plates can be loaded into multiple cassettes, aside from the cassette in use, allowing for continuous operation, and 8mm clamps with an option for 6mm on the T-X model ensure compatibility with a wide range of web and sheet-fed presses.

A remote maintenance service allows the monitoring of system status from off-site, along with guidance on timely maintenance and the replacement of consumables.

Sean Lane, Product Management and Support manager, Offset Products says: “We’re delighted to be able to bring this enhanced platesetter to market. With its compact size, easy operability, and imaging improvements, it’s designed to add value to offset print businesses and improve ROI. We’re proud to continue to support offset print businesses and help them to boost efficiencies in a challenging market.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
