Advantage N Essentials

A brand-new series of low-cost yet high-quality engines that take CtP technology back to its essence. It’s all about affordable efficiency and advanced essentials.

Advantage N Essentials

Overview

Advantage N Essentials is dedicated to helping the newspaper market grow. That’s why it takes the ratio between affordability and performance to a whole new level. The new range of engines offers you the same reliability and productivity as Advantage N, only at an even more affordable price.

The Essentials combine the same efficiency, user-friendliness and violet-laser imaging as Advantage N with new technology, where needed. The result? Highly reliable CtP units that offer you innovative, yet risk-free functioning.

Does a more basic approach to CtP mean that you have limited options? Not with the Essentials series. Its engines support different plate-loading mechanisms, throughput speeds and levels of autonomy. You can even add optional features to adjust your engine to your personal needs.

Key Benefits

  • Violet-laser imaging technology for fast and reliable plate making.
  • Short production cycles for extendable editorial and advertising deadlines.
  • Automation for consistent quality, fewer remakes, and less waste.
  • Quality at a reduced cost to help you grow your business.
  • An optimal production process to minimize potential interruptions.
  • Functional adaptability to offer you a personalized CtP system.

Features

Effective innovation

Advantage N Essentials is built on the Advantage N philosophy, yet integrates a new, vertical imaging head. Without making compromises on performance, we opted for new technology where that would be most effective.

Degrees of automation

As a semi-automatic CtP engine, the Advantage N- eSA serves the need for limited automation. Plate loading and positioning are done manually, while plate unloading is an autonomous process. Need full automation? The Advantage N- eTR automatically loads plates from an internal, transportable cassette. Slip sheet removal, plate positioning and plate unloading all happen autonomously as well.

Functional options

Did we mention the optional features that come with Advantage N Essentials? According to your specific wants and needs, you can opt for several additional features – e.g. mirrored registration – to personalize your engine.
