Environmentally Friendly Thermal Film
ThermoImpression™ Film is a specially coated polyester which, instead of being light sensitive like other graphic art films, is heat sensitive. When the imagesetter applies heat to the film, the reactive layer turns black and creates the image. Our thermal film doesn't require messy toners, dyes, inks or transfers.
Thermal Film Features:
• .005” thickness for better handleability
• Lays flat before and after exposure
• Dimensionally stable for accurate registration
• Light safe
• Produce dark films with density between 4.0 and 5.0
TechSetter2 Thermal Film TS 14.25 inch x 200 feet $428.
Use your existing TIFF RIP or bundle the equipment with a new RIP
Our Harlequin RIP software includes over 30 different dot shapes along with Stochastic Screening (FM Screening). Getting jobs into the RIP and output is easy. Printing to the RIP can be done through a shared printer, or users can drag and drop PDF files into shared spoolfolders for processing. The easy-to-use interface and ability to preview will help you produce great looking films, and the RIP's built-in positioning and ganging/nesting features can help optimize film usage.
