The Lawson Focus-CTS is the easiest to use of all the ink jet imaging devices available in the marketplace. It is shipped fully assembled, and can be ready to print within hours after arrival in your shop.
The Lawson Focus-CTS (computer-to-screen) Imaging System includes an industrial HP print head, and an adjustable screen clamping system. Use any size screen up to 23" x 31" O.D.
Lawson's master frame carrier adjusts to fit the standard 20" x 24" manual frame, and the standard automatic frame size of 20" x 28" and 23" x 31".
By incorporating HP print head technology you can print halftones up to 55 line. Of course you will need a RIP to run the Focus-CTS... and the RIP is created by CadLink software - It is included with the Focus at no extra charge. It is easy-to-use and can be used with CorelDraw, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
Our exclusive Black dye, with special UV inhibitors, ensures a dark, crisp image every time. Image quality is excellent, and you will achieve nearly instant "on-press" registration with Lawson's 3-Point Register Guide, the M&R Tri-Loc or other systems.
Basic Advantages of CTS
Computer-to-Screen imaging (CTS) can vastly improve and increase screen throughput in your shop. It will improve efficiency, lower cost, increase production, and enhance your print quality. No more film positives, or expensive print heads to replace, and you'll achieve perfect screen-to-screen alignment every time - you will always remain in perfect registration from exposure to press.
