In the pre-press arena Apex has an unrivalled reputation in the UK, having installed over 500 Computer to Plate systems nationwide. It now has an exclusive distribution deal with Chinese manufacturer Cron for its CtP systems and plates. Apex also supply Screen metal-based computer-to-plate systems, including products to work with thermal and violet sensitive plates, and a chemistry-free Polyester CtP Solution from Mitsubishi.

The right combination

Offset printing is still the most cost effective production method for all but the very shortest commercial print runs, and recent advances have made press/CTP combinations from Apex even more attractive. The advent of LED-UV has been a game changer for litho, as printers have woken up to the benefits of instant, clean, eco-friendly drying.

Whatever the format - from B3 to SRA1 - when a Ryobi LED-UV press is used in conjunction with the latest generation of low-cost high performance CtP systems from Cron, cost per sheet is minimised, turnround times are rapid, and the most profitable litho production workflows can be achieved.

A Ryobi LED-UV press and
Cron CtP combination delivers:

• 15,000 sheets/hour
• Instant drying
• Stocks up to 600 micron
• 4 minute makereadies
• Around £1 per plate (B3)
• Unbeatable output quality


New thermal and UV computer to plate systems from Cron offer a high quality, low-cost solution in 26”, 36” and 46” formats.

New 'H' variant now available in 26" format; a 3-in-one machine which combines Autoload, Platesetter and Bridge/Punch for a unique 3-in-1 solution offering the highest productivity and smallest footprint.
