Computer-to-Plate System (CtP)
1.Description
Computer-to-Plate System (CtP)
The DPX SYSTEM digital platesetter produces
press-ready plates for a variety of printing jobs.
The entire process only takes a few minutes and is
carried out in full daylight.
This highly versatile platesetter is capable of managing a variety of colour demands, satisfying a
wide range of imaging needs. The DPX SYSTEM
targets all black and white applications as well as
high-end spot-colour, and quality 4-colour jobs.
Cost-Effective Production
The DPX SYSTEM is a highly productive and
economic solution. The technology has proven to
reduce the processing time by 50%, without compromising the ultimate quality.
The DPX SYSTEM Unit
Exterior of Machine
Time Saving
The DPX SYSTEM bypasses the conventional
film processing stage entirely by integrating functions such as edge-to-edge exposure, plate punching, processing, cutting to size, drying and
stacking, in one compact unit.

Perfect Accuracy
Based on an internal drum imaging device with a
LED laser (670 nm), the DPX SYSTEM offers unmatched image accuracy and repeatability, ensuring that each separation is in register.
Intelligent Optimization
The DPX SYSTEM contains two cassettes, holding up to 61 metres of material each. If the same
material is loaded in both cassettes, the unit will
automatically switch to the second cassette when
the first is empty, allowing uninterrupted production for hours.

Undefined command “set calibration”
The current plate setup can not find a calibration.
This might be due to the setup of the calibration or
how the received PostScript job was set up. Refer
to the RipMate user guide for further information.
Font not found
The system is set up to refuse processing a plate
when a font is missing in the PostScript job.
4. Look for plate material left in the drum.
DPX SYSTEM reports to the Rip Monitor which
font is missing.
Loader Jam: 0 - 100
An error in the exposure section of the DPX SYSTEM has occured. Generally, this error message
describes a situation, where a sensor has not seen
the material passing by at the expected time.
5. With the palm of the hand against the drum
surface, scan the surface to make sure that no
pieces are left.
6. Close the exposure module door (fig. 2. G),
and restart the system.
Loader Jam: 101 - 112
1. Shut down the system and restart it.
Continue exposing if the error has disappeared,
otherwise
2. Shut down the system.
3. Open the exposure module door (fig. 2. G).
Warning: All power to the machine is now shut
off. Wait 20 seconds for the spinner motor to settle.
This error only occurs when a punch system is installed.
1. Shut down the system.
2. Open the exposure module door (fig 2. G).
Warning: All power to the machine is now shut
off. Wait 20 seconds for the spinner motor to settle.

Troubleshooting
If the processor unit cannot be pulled out, a plate is
jammed either between the buffer and the processor unit or between the exit tray and the processor
unit.
Use the long jam knife (mounted on the inside of
the exposure module door) to cut the jammed plate
from one of the following holes:
3. Check the two punch tubes and punch tools for
punch waste. Make sure they can move freely
by turning them by hand.
4. Close the exposure module door (fig 2. G), and
restart the system.
Dryer exit
A plate is jammed in the processing section.
3. Take out the two replenishment bottles.
1. Open the processor module door (fig 2. E).
4. Lift off the tank cover and check for plates in
the racks. If one is found remove it.
2. Lift the locking pawl of the processor unit and
pull the section forward to the extreme stop position
If no plate is found in the tanks, look in the dryer
section.

6. Lift off the air guide.
5. Lift the dryer module as shown on the picture.
Check if there is a plate in the dryer section. If not,
close the exposure module door (fig. 2. E) and continue exposing.
Warning: Observe closely the mounting of the
two guides. If they are not put back in exactly the
same position, it might cause a jam.
7. Lift off the material guide.
When all guides are removed the operator can
freely remove any jammed material.
8. Mount the two guides in position again and
close the dryer module.
9. Close the processor module door (fig 2. E) and
continue exposing.
