Emergency Switch
All mechanical motions in the device are stopped and
the invisible laser beam is switched off when the
emergency switch is used. Use these switches in cases
of emergency only. These are located on both sides of
the device.
On/Off button
The Prosetter 52/74/102 is only de-energized by the
On/Off button.
All plugs and sockets of the equipment units are to be
readily accessible, because you must unplug the
power cable to completely cut off all power to the
equipment (for example, in dangerous situations).
When connecting or disconnecting the power cable,
only ever hold the cable at the plug and make sure
that your hands are not wet. A damaged power cable
can cause leakage currents and electric shocks. Protect the power cable from being damaged. Never place
any heavy objects upon it and do not allow it to get
jammed.
Laser Safety
The Laser Imagesetter is a Class 1 laser product.
This means that the invisible laser radiation produced in the unit is shielded by means of protective
covers.
If used as directed, the user is never exposed to danger from the laser beam.
The laser system used in the Prosetter 52/74/102 is a
Class 3B system (up to 500 mW).
Companies which are servicing the device in Ger-

many must appoint a laser safety officer in accordance with the Accident Prevention Regulations (BGV
B2) from the Professional Trade Association.
Servicing may only be carried out by Heidelberg
personnel who have been trained by appropriate
laser protection officers for this purpose.
Service and Maintenance
Service work may only be carried out by persons
authorized by Heidelberg.
The respective accident prevention regulations must
be observed at all times.

Warning: Never remove covers or any other parts of


the casing except for the work described in the Service
and Maintenance and Troubleshooting chapters. When
doing so, keep to the stipulated sequence of operations.
Otherwise, there is the danger of the invisible laser
beam causing injury to eyes and skin and/or fatal electric shocks.

Warning: You may be exposed to dangerous radiation


by the invisible laser beam if you use operating or
adjustment equipment other than those mentioned
in this documentation or if you follow other working
procedures.
When carrying out work as described in the customer
documentation, the user must always adhere to the
operating process stipulated. Protection from the
invisible laser beam is guaranteed by covers or safety
loops.
The use of laser protection glasses is not in the plans
as correct operation eliminates the need for these.

Safety Loop
For your safety, the output device is equipped with a
safety loop. If the safety loop is interrupted, e.g. by
opening the back panel, all mechanical movement is
stopped and the invisible laser beam is switched off at
the exposure head.
Under no circumstances the safety system is to be
bypassed as this might lead to eye or skin injuries due
to the invisible laser beam, crushing due to the optic
carriage or injuries due to electric shock.

Introduction

1 Introduction

Description of the Unit and its Functions


The Prosetter 52/74/102 works as an imagesetter based
on the indrum principle and is used for imaging PostScriptTM, PDF and TIFF files onto metal printing
plates.
These files are converted by the connected RIP (Raster
Image Processor) and are then sent to the Prosetter
52/74/102.
The Prosetter 52/74/102 has a V.24/LVDS interface for
a RIP connection (e.g. Meta Dimension).
A violet laser, equipped with a wavelength of 405 nm,
effects exposure on metal printing plates.
The printing plate is inserted manually via the feeding table. The Prosetter 52/74/102 automatically loads
the printing plate to the mold images it, punches it
(option) and then transports the imaged plate back to
the insertion table.

Exposure Principle
The Prosetter 52/74/102 is an area imagesetter. The
recording beam does not expose the composition
work character for character, but instead moves over
the entire width of the printing plate, line by line.
This recording process requires that the PostScript
files are converted to image dot files (pixel files) by

the RIP before exposure starts. The number of image


dots (pixels) per centimeter (lines/cm) or dots per inch
(dpi) depends on the selected resolution.
The laser in the optical head emits a laser beam
which is modulated (lightened/darkened) according
to the video data transferred.
The laser beam, formed correspondingly in the optical head, is deflected via a rapidly rotating mirror.
The deflected beam of the optical system moves in an
axial direction and exposes the printing plate line by
line.

Material Handling
Observe the following when handling printing plates:
0

Plate edges can be sharp. Put on protective gloves.


This will protect you from injury.

Never touch the emulsion side of the printing


plate with your bare hands. Finger prints will be
produced on the printing plate which can
adversely affect the print quality.

The printing plates are very easily scratched. It is


therefore essential to insert slip sheets when you
place printing plates on top of each other, so that
they cannot scrape against each other.

Do not expose the printing plates to light and only


as briefly as possible to yellow light because yellow
light will also cause pre-exposure.

Material storage
For the storage of printing plates,
0

prior to exposure,

after exposure and

after development,

various requirements apply which can be obtained


from the manufacturer of the printing plates.
