Laser imager

Digital data (text, images, graphics) can be transferred onto printing forms with a laser imager. A Raster-Image-Processor (RIP) identifies the relevant image values of the black and white imaging elements via horizontal lines and thus controls the laser beam. All elements (text, image, graphics) in a printing template are displayed by horizontal image lines from the top to the bottom. The resolution stage can be configured individually.
