Compatible with all common B1 and B2 press sizes with a maximum plate size of 1162mm x 960mm

Suitable for high quality commercial printers and trade shops, the violet Luxel V-8 HS offers a highly flexible format size. With a maximum plate size of 1162mm x 960mm x 0.3mm, the Luxel V8-HS is compatible with all B1 and B2 presses. Accurate plate registration enables easy adoption of offline punching solutions. Optional integrated plate punching enables the production of press-ready plates for most commercial sheetfed presses. Custom plate punches are also available.

Plate production speeds of up to 50 x B1 plates per hour at 2400dpi allow unrivalled plate turnaround

With a two laser configuration, Fujifilm's Luxel V8-HS delivers up to 50 B1 plates per hour at 2400dpi, and 70 at 1200dpi (without punch).

Fully automated plate handling and storage for up to 300 plates for the most demanding production environments

Benefiting from fully automated plate handling and storage for up to 300 plates across 5 cassettes, the platesetter allows unattended operation for long periods.

Easy to use, service and maintain

Advanced technology and its application to simplify machine operation is one of Fujifilm's strengths. An innovative menu-driven touch screen interface features icons and graphics for quick and easy machine operation and maintenance. The maintenance and serviceability of the system has also been designed with the use of remote diagnostics in mind.

Designed and manufactured for exceptional reliability and long term trouble free operation

Fujifilm's engineers designed the Luxel V-8 HS to be a highly reliable plate production system. Built using many proven elements from its predecessor, the Luxel V/Vx-9600CTP, it easily copes with long shifts. Having a high-speed platesetting solution is only an advantage if the system keeps working day in and day out. That's why Fujifilm have focused on driving OUT complexity and designing IN reliability from day one of the product's development.

Lower cost of maintenance and ownership

A significant benefit enjoyed by Luxel V-8 HS users is the low cost of ownership. The use of dual, long-life violet laser diodes enables higher levels of plate production without incurring the expense of maintaining up to 128 independent thermal laser diodes. In addition, the use of Brillia LP-NV means that systems are kept in production for up to 8 weeks without down time for processor cleaning.

Integrated, cost-effective, high-quality plate output solution

The violet Luxel V-8 HS platesetter is complemented by Fujifilm’s commercial violet plate, Brillia LP-NV. Manufactured with quality, speed and flexibility as its major benefits, Luxel V-8 HS CTP together with LP-NV will form a powerful combination for printers looking for cost-effective, high-quality plate production.

Unique Fujifilm Co-Res SCREENING delivers quality and productivity gains

Customers needing to produce plates at 175 lpi without the normal overheads of larger file sizes and lower productivity can benefit from Fujifilm’s Co-Res SCREENING. Through the use intelligent screening algorithms and the systems ability to image significantly faster at lower resolutions, up to 70 B1 plates per hour can be produced. Designed to meet commercial print requirements using conventional 175 lpi linescreens, quality benefits are particularly evident with rosettes and vignettes.

Fast Restart Feature

The engine has a fast restart feature that allows quick recovery following an error, minimising downtime.

PRO-V Ready

The Luxel V-8 HS is fully compatible with Fujifilm's low chemistry, photopolymer plate, Superia PRO-V.
