    Turn off the automatic cleaning in the menu. The power clean does use a lot of ink. When needed just run through the nozzle check and only clean when necessary using the "Head Cleaning" as this use very little ink.

    You only need to use the printer once a week to keep the nozzles clear. I have four Epsons (4000,4800,4880 and a 9890) and rarely have clogging of the heads even though it can be a week or two between uses of a particular machine.

    That's surely true for an ink-jet printer, but the dealer I talked with said that the stuff used in iCTP to replace the normal ink is heavier than the normal ink-jet printer's ink and dries quicker... so his advice was to always let the automatic cleaning on, and let the iCTP connected to main, to have continuous cleaning, even during week-end and holidays!!! He also told me that the price of the heads replacement is so heavy that it's not worth it to risk a clogging.

    Leila, the dealer must have been talking about the G&J system which has its own fluids and can only image plates.
    The TUK System uses standard inks and not only images to polyester plates and film but also prints all the more standard photographs, proofs and banners without changing inks.
    I am a professional photographer and litho printer. The system fills both my needs.

    Yes, sorry for this misunderstanding. I don't know the TUK system...

    In this thread I am only talking about the Glunz&Jensen system, the "PlateWriter 2400", which is based on a reworked-adapted Epson ink-jet printer, using special "ink", aluminium plates, and an oven to finish the plate.


    And to answer to arash's question about 4-colors jobs, according to the G&J documentation the "PlateWriter 2400" has a plate alignment system to allow a good registration of the printing on the plate.

    I'm testing the plates with 2 spot in a GTO, and works well. Still I could not try a four colors. The product is very interesting
    Greetings
    If you know anything else, comment
    What is the resolution you have used?
    The printer can only provide 2880x1440 or 1440x1440. It is a little bit different to the conventional printing. and i just concern the quality.

    doing nozzle check before print, your waste is small amount of ink, paper and time.

    The probem is that you only can make a run lenght about 50.000

    In reality it is not so much.

    The 7900CTP by Epson is a great chemical-free device for a small shop. The resolution and registration is great for 2-color work. I wouldn't recommend this printer if the majority of work going through it is 4-color, it's just not meant for that. The good side of this printer is that it is a true 7900 so not only do you have a plate maker, but also a great way to proof.

    JoeColor really laid it out how it is. I've heard really positive results from this system. It is truly aimed at a mom and pop shop looking to get into CTP. See the specs @ [URL="http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Pro/SeriesStylusPro7900CTP/Overview.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes"]http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Pro/SeriesStylusPro7900CTP/Overview.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes[/URL]

    The inks are those that come with the Epson 7900, and at the end of printing on the plate, you must give the cure to bear with 20000 hits
