TechStyler Features & Benefits
NO Harmful Chemicals, NO Darkroom, NO Processing Equipment, NO Inks or Toners
When purchasing a TechStyler imagesetter you eliminate the need for hazardous developing and fixing chemicals used in traditional film imagesetting systems. You also save space by eliminating the need for a darkroom which also cuts down on energy costs because the imagesetter does not require a processor.
The new TechStyler wide-format thermal imagesetter gives screen and textile printers an exceptionally affordable, new wide-format film output solution enabling the efficient printing of full body graphics right to the edge while producing full-size 600 x 600 dpi film positives and film negatives up to 14” wide. Closed Loop Registration (CLR) control ensures tight registration and delivers both accuracy and consistency.
The TechStyler is capable of producing professional, on-demand, film separations right in your own shop without a darkroom, processor or chemicals. Create great looking film positives or film negatives using one machine. Thermal imaging technology offers clear, compact, environmentally friendly solutions to artwork production, enabling you to eliminate outsourcing of large-format films and bring production-control in-house. The chemistry-free, dry-imaging ThermoImpression® film requires absolutely no fixers, developers, inks or toners while providing UV densities that exceed industry standards.
The TechStyler ThermoImpression System includes a new RTI Harlequin RIP-Kit. This innovative, trouble-free and fully-featured RIP is PostScript® Level 3 and PDF compatible. Each system configuration also includes HDS Lite (Harlequin Dispersed Screening Lite) for moiré free films and screens. The bottom line: wider edge to edge printability, better day to day performance, improved resolution and registration, less waste, lower costs and affordable price.

Exceptional Halftone Screening
Every RTI Harlequin RIP includes Harlequin Precision Screening (HPS). When placing color separations on top of one another the RIP precisely calculates screen angles and frequencies to avoid moiré patterns. HPS also uses an adaptive screening technique that adjusts each halftone dot so that it is placed within one half pixel of its ideal location. The RIP allows users to control and manage resolutions (dots per inch or dpi), line screens/frequency (lines per inch or lpi), screen angles, dot shapes, scaling, crop marks, mirror image, negative/positive, rotation and much more. Our screening technology is also designed to work with a wide range of printing processes including Flexography, Offset Lithography, Screen Printing, Gravure, Engraving and Digital Printing.
