Commercial printing solutions

CRON Commercial CTP products target the challenges faced by today's commercial printers. Shorter runs, faster turnaround times and higher quality at lower cost have become the expectations of consumers, fueled by the increased use of alternative media and the immediacy of smartphone imaging technologies. The response requires flexibility, performance, productivity and cost effectiveness. All attributes designed into one of the most comprehensive ranges of prepress solutions available - UV or thermal CTP devices from CRON supported by workflow, peripherals, automation ancillaries and plates. All hardware - except for processors* - is designed, manufactured and marketed by CRON to ensure total compatibility and to keep your pressroom running at ultimate productivity levels at the lowest possible cost. For example, the CRON Chemistry Replenisher Developer (CRD) system takes automatic control of processor chemistry ensuring accurate midtones and a tonal range of 1-99% for all plate types.

CTP flexibility is at the heart of CRON's product philosophy. Four series span the entire spectrum of press formats with each format available in either UV or Thermal versions. Different models within each series enable users to tune their production to productivity or budget requirements. Each CTP device can be used stand-alone, or be fully automated with inline punching, transport, delivery and processing. Alternatively, each can be upgraded, item by item, to fit future growth expectations.

*CRON has an exclusive relationship with Glunz and Jensen for the supply of processors which complement its CTP products
