Computer to Plate

Computer to Plate, or CtP, is a digital imaging technology that takes the place of Computer to Film (CtF). With CtP, the image is transferred digitally from a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) application to the printing plate.

As a licensee of Kodak printing technology in West Africa and associated regions, FC Exports specialises in the supply of leading CtP equipment using Kodak's Squarespot imaging technology. For clients with smaller businesses, FC Exports is also able to supply quality refurbished Glunz and Jensen Platesetter machinery.
