Product Overview


Highwater Cobra 8

Cobra 8 is a manual load-unload CtP engine designed specifically for the B1/8-up commercial print market. It exposes violet metal plates at high resolution, using high precision internal drum imaging optics and a 120mW laser diode. The plate is placed directly into the drum by the operator and is located in the registration system. Vacuum is then applied to hold the plate in perfect register while it is imaged at a resolution of 2540 dpi (100 dpmm) or 1270 dpi (50 dpmm) at speeds of 6mm and 12mm per second respectively. At 2540dpi an B1/8-up plate takes only three minutes to image, regardless of content.

The Cobra CtP solution includes a high-spec workstation running HighWater’s innovative output console providing all the tools needed to manage your plate imaging. Supplied with the advanced Navigator Harlequin RIP as standard, Cobra 8 is an open system that can accept 1-bit TIFF files from any source. Software options available include full PDF workflow, imposition, In-RIP trapping and proofing.

A new simple Java-based user interface for ‘point and click’ plate production has been specifically designed for the Cobra 8. With ‘at a glance’ multiple views, a home view showing previews and status of current jobs, overviews of all queues and completed plates, it is a powerful and highly effective tool in the plate production process.

The benefits of using Cobra 8 in your workflow are compelling. Its quality and speed of output let you produce plates to meet the ever increasing demands of today’s printer. Cobra’s simple and effective design, with remote diagnostics, ensures an extremely high level of reliability with minimum downtime. This will put you ahead of your competition in the quest to satisfy your customers’ high expectations.

Combining all these benefits with low cost of ownership, Cobra 8 provides affordable metal plate production with an excellent price/performance figure. HighWater’s Barcode Plate Requeue is included as standard, a unique identification mark is applied to every plate, users can then easily remake plates by simply scanning the barcode.
