CTP Thermal Head

For thermal heads used in CTP applications, HIT can change their laser bars and realign micronlenses and light valves to provide them more precision and efficiency.

The thermal head in image 1, used in a Kodak/Creo thermal CTP, uses a laser bar (20/40/60 watt) that shoots the beam through a microlens and light valve. The image captures HIT as it applies the enhancements detailed above on the thermal head.

The following 3 images features a trendsetter head post-installation of a new 50-watt laser bar and micro lens. The adjustments restores the beam shape back to its original, new state.
