UV-CTP, also known as CTcP, is the abbreviation of Computer To Conventional Plate, which refers to the use of UV light source for computer-to-plate making on traditional PS plates. UV-CTP enters the printing industry with the advantage of being able to use ordinary PS plates. There are only three equipment suppliers in the world that produce UV-CTP. At Drupa 2004, BasyPrint and Esko-Graphics showcased the molding products of this technology. At the end of 2008, Hangzhou Cray launched the first UV-CTP in China at the 3rd China International Exhibition. The emergence of UV-CTP not only basically solves the problem of high price of the plate material in the process of CTP popularization, but also opens up another blue sea for the development of digital printing and digital printing platemaking industry.
