920*680mm Multi-functional Processor Solvent Based Flexo Plate Processor
Regardless of the PS plate or the CTP plate, a processing machine is required for processing the plate after the exposure is completed. EcooGraphix CTP Processor can be used with Offline / Online Thermal CTP or CTCP or UV-CTP platesetters, such as Kodak, Screen, Agfa, Creo, Amsky or Cron CTP machines.

♖ Caution and Process
1) Do not run the feature of ‘water temperature’ before you and solvent in the solvent tank.
2) Use three pin leg for the power supply of the machine, the power supply must with the earth connection.
3) Don’t open the cover(figure 1) when washing the resin plate.
4) The power supply is 220V 50-60Hz.
5) Keep it on for 20 minutes after you finished your work.
The progress of working:
Adjust the brush
Put the solvent into the solvent tank; and the level of the solvent must lesser than the brush top (0.5-1.0cm). Then wet the brush with solvent and close the cover. Observe the washing flat, if the four sides of the washing flat have the solvent (it means the brush is just touching the solvent), it is suitable for washing. If not, you have to set the height of the brush. There is one fixable screw in four side of the brush, set the height of the screw to adjust the level of the brush till the brush is just touching the washing flat. (Caution: it is better for you to use the water to replace the solvent to adjust the level of the brush, but you have to put the solvent to the solvent tank till the water is dry, because the water and the solvent are not compatible, it means you have to wait till the water is dry to use the machine).
The progress of operation (Figure 2):
First, set the machine in the airy space and check the power supply is working. Press the power (there is a power connection for all section -- ‘power’, turn it on) to open the machine. Maybe it will wink once because of the power but it is normal.
Set the parameter
Press button 1 to choose up and press the button 5 to choose down (choose the different feature). For example, press the button 5, the light is winking in ‘Exposure time’, press it again it will wink in ‘Wash-out time’ and so on. Set the parameter for all functions. When the light is winking, press button 2 and 4 to choose the digit (button 2 is to choose right, button is to choose left). When the digit is winking you can set the parameter. Press button 1 and 5 to add and reduce parameter (button 1 is to add parameter; button 5 is to reduce the parameter). After the setting you have to press button 3 (set) to fix the parameter that you had chosen.
After setting the parameter, you can press every function to run it. When the working time is enough it will stop automatic and voice out few times to show you the working (you can try and check all functions to know it well before you use it).
Exposure function (Figure 1 and 2):
Pull out the function 6 (Exposure section) and roll up the transparent plastic film. Put the film on your resin plate and put it on the flat and press the button 6 (vacuum button) and cover it with the transparent plastic film bit by bit (so that the air will be made out better). (Caution: make sure that your film and the transparent plastic film is clean, no water, no dust no solvent and so on. The resin plate is a little bigger than your film so that the vacuum pump can work better). Observe the window of the vacuum pointer (it is in the right of the machine and it shows the working of pump, the work is good when it is pointing between 0.08 &-0.1) Push the Exposure flat into the machine and press ‘Exposure time’ and it will work. When it is finished, it will stop and voice out few times to show you the working. Pull out the function 6 (exposure section) again and press button 6 to stop the work of pump. Roll up the transparent plastic film and get the film and resin plate.
Washing and drying (figure 1 and 2)
Paste the resin plate to the section 2 Washing flat and press the button ‘Wash-out time’ and close the cover. It will work. You have to watch it out when it is finished (because it is not good for the resin plate and your finished goods if the resin plate is in the solvent longer). The washing time is 3-6 minutes; it depends on the thickness of your resin plate. After it is stopped, open the cover and test it whether is it clean or not with you finger. Touch the blank area (no words and no picture area), if it is sticky you can close the cover and wash it for a while again till it is better (but the washing time is lesser is better). After that get the resin plate out and put it into the function 8
(before you use this function you have to run it 5-10 minutes earlier so that the drying work will be better and faster). To sure that the drying works is enough and it depends on the thickness of your resin plate (if the thickness is thicker, like 3.94mm and the drying time will be better for 1 hours long; If it is 1.7mm and 40 minutes is enough, it is not the only way to judge the drying time, if the resin plate is straight, you do not need to wait to get the resin plate out. It needs your experience). If the washing works is not enough (there is somewhere is not clean and you can paste the resin plate on the Washing flat to wash it again, but it is better that it is finished once).
Second expose section (Figure 1 and 2)
After drying, put the resin plate into the function 7 Second expose section and press the button ‘Second expose time’. Usually, the parameter for it is 4-8 minutes; it depends on your experience and the resin plate and so on. It is use to make the resin plate is steadier for printing.
All are finished.
After one or two years, the lambs will be weaker; you have to change one new set exposure lamb. The lamb is use with Philip s 15W exposure lamp. You can get it in your location. Change the lamp (figure 2). Pull out the function 6 Exposure section, after that you can pull out the control board and all constructs of electronic design will show in front of you. It is easy for you to change the new lamps for it.
After 1 year, the oil in the pump is not enough, so that the working of exposure is not good. If the oil is not enough, it causes the sucking strength is lesser. It will influence the effect of exposure. You have to check the oil of the pump. Open the cover of the machine (it is in the back of the machine, it is use few screws to fix the stainless steel clover into the machine). The pump is fixed under it. There is a transparent window in the side of the pump. When the level of the oil is under the red line, you have to add some oil (the oil is special, it is use for the vacuum pump only, you can buy it from the vacuum pump shop or somewhere, it is very cheap) into the pump.
