ThermoImpression Film is a specially coated polyester which, instead of being light sensitive like other graphic art films, is heat sensitive. When the imagesetter applies heat to the film, the reactive layer turns black and creates the image. Our thermal film doesn't require messy toners, dyes, inks or transfers. This is the only consumable needed for the Liberator, TechStyler, TechSetter, and EcoPRO product lines.
Thermal Film Features:
• .005” thickness for better handleability
• Lays flat before and after exposure
• Dimensionally stable for accurate registration
• Light safe
• Produce dark films with density between 4.0 and 5.0 using SPx or XP film
Every thermal imagesetter purchase includes the latest version Harlequin RIP. This RIP software includes over 30 different dot shapes along with Stochstic Screening (FM Screening). Getting jobs into the RIP and output is easy. Printing to the RIP can be done through a shared printer, or users can drag and drop PDF files into shared spoolfolders for processing. The easy-to-use interface and ability to preview will help you produce great looking films, and the RIP's built-in positioning and ganging/nesting features can help optimize film usage.
Exceptional Halftone Screening
The RIP included with the thermal imagesetters includes Stochastic Screening. With this option users can output using our FM/Stochastic screen sets, and now you can also output using a newly developed Stochastic Yellow feature. This feature allows users to output Cyan, Magenta, and Black along with any spot colors using Harlequin's conventional AM screen sets while applying a stochastic screen to the Yellow.
