    Agfa Palladio II

    I use this CTP, but I noticed a low precision on exposition: there is a variability especially for low screen percentages.

    Other plate-setters with the same technology are more accurate? Thermal CTPs are better?

    I need extreme precision on entire plate surface (745x605 mm) because I print a repetition of the same subject on the entire sheet.

    Agfa Palladio II has capstan technology that not good, drum is more accurate.
    Thermal CTP are better.
    Polymer technology have low resolution

    Many thanks. So, if I need extreme precision in the screen percentages, especially low percentages, do you suggest a drum CTP with violet plates like the Palladio or a thermal CTP?

    I need also the possibility to use a screen resolution of 200 lpi or more, and also a sthocastic screening: the Palladio II is limited to AM screen at 175 lpi max.

    What is the best solution? Many thanks

    Sorry but I don't understand "XM raster"

    AFAIR Palladio supports Sublima for 210 lpi.
    Personally I have tried 240 lpi with Palladio and silver plates -- it works well.

    Many thanks. I know Sublima, I have asked to our seller but it is no longer available for Palladio..

    So I think the only way is to change the CTP...but it's an expensive solution!

    Use 150 lpi.

    Palladio is a flatbed machine polygon spinner. It is characterized by production. To avoid problems of dot variation and fillings, it is best to use lower frames. 150lpi is better.

    the cost of thermal plate is getting low and the price of the recorder is also dropping
    i think it is not necessary to think about violet ctp

    that is not true there is possible to order sublima for palladio

    The XM (Sublima) 175 lpi is the maximum if you use N91V or Lithostar LAP_V Ultra plate of Agfa to Palladio.

    if you need high precision all over the entire plate, than you have to use a drum machine, not a flatbed like your Palladio. Any outdrum machine, thermal or UV has a high precision imaging all over the entire plate surface.
    If you want to go higher than 200 lpi and maybe use Fm or hybrid screening you have to use thermal plates with chemicals, because these plates give you the resolution wich is needed for higher lpi and for very small dots like in fm-screening or hybrid screening
