Our two Heidelberg Suprasetter computer to plate systems offer the best solution available in today's market for cost quality reproduction. Not only do these systems significantly decrease the production time, but the use of a laser imaging system and industry leading screening technology ensure premium quality print. With our closed loop quality controls every plate is matched to press generated profiles which pass the make ready instructions direct to the press and finishing equipment thus ensuring controlled quality time after time.

Suprasetter use only lasers exclusively developed by Heidelberg. The result is excellent imaging quality with maximum productivity. They also offer unrivaled depth of focus. The internal punching systems ensure consistently reliable production and very high register accuracy in the press. 

The laser systems in the Suprasetter offer not only outstanding quality but also a high level of reliability, in particular through the Intelligent Diode System (IDS) developed and patented by Heidelberg. Even if one or several diodes fail, production is not interrupted.
