$ 3800 for PC versions through Windows 7 and MAC versions 10.4 and higher.
The Kimosetter Model 410 platemaker was designed to produce first generation images on a polyester plate in sizes up to 16" X 20". The Kimosetter features an internal RIP for either MAC (OSX versions 4.0 and higher) or PC and connects to your computer just as any printer device would. You simply print your publication to the Kimosetter ( we recommend that you convert your publication to a PDF, but you can print directly from the major desktop publishing programs). The Kimosetter uses thermal technology to "etch" the image on the plate. The imaged plate is then ready to put on your press. No special chemicals to buy either. The Kimosetter is NOT a laser printer. The drawback to a laser printer is toner scatter, therefore there is no toner scatter with the Kimosetter.
In most cases the Kimosetter will give you the quality of film or a metal plate. However, because it's a polyester plate, it is designed for shorter runs of 3,000-5,000 sheets per plate. Once again, no special chemicals to use, store or dispose of. Ideal for single color and spot colors, but not processed colors.
Can't believe it? Call us today more information and for a free press-ready sample plate. Or we will make plates using your own PDF file. Now is the time to "go digital" - don't wait for your film processor and old platemaking system to break down. The Kimosetter is the least expensive digital platemaking solution on the market today.
