  • Extremely easy to operate
  • Optimized chemistry consumption and limited maintenance needs result in reduced cost of ownership
  • Easy start-up on press saves time and money

Features

Solid, Fast and Reliable Processing

Elantrix DX is built to the highest specifications and offers robust, reliable and fast performance. Plate development, washing, gumming and drying are fully automated. Elantrix offers best-in-class processing performance and provides excellent image quality on plate. Its robust construction offers stability and consistency over time.

Advanced Design

Processing speed, developer temperature, replenishment and all other important processing parameters are automatically controlled, maintained and monitored by the processor.

Small Ecological Footprint

Elantrix DX has been designed for a small ecological footprint. It comes standard with a combined developer chiller/heater.

As the operating software renders very accurate replenishment values, the chemistry consumption is optimized for the used plate volumes, resulting in a reduced cost.

Low Maintenance

The quick release and home positioning of the transport rollers means that no tools are needed for maintenance of the rollers, saving costs and time. Easy access to the electronics, a quick removal of the dryer exit rollers, and fast draining of processing liquids leads to reduced maintenance time and as such reduced cost.

Full-featured Control Panel

The Elantrix DX features state-of-the-art electronics and a touch panel interface. Its intuitive user control panel gives a clear overview of the processor’s functions and settings, as well as detailed reports. You can immediately review the developer condition, usage of plates, used times, and will get indications for maintenance.

Versatile System

The versatile Elantrix DX easily interfaces with our wide range of thermal printing plate systems. In addition, optional scrub-rollers can be easily installed. Plates as short as 300 mm can be processed.

Optimized Gum Roller Configuration

A uniform gum layer is applied over the plate surface for optimum plate storage capabilities and an easy start-up on press. This saves time and costs.
