Advanced Technology

Fast Printing… Fast Heat
Developing Process
With the DRYPRO 873, the developing process
has been redesigned for fast mass volume processing.
The film is pre-heated from the early
stage of film transfer. In addition to reducing
unstable temperature areas, fast mass volume
processing and density stability have been
achieved by dividing the heat developing part
into five parts and closely controlling the
process. Ten sheets of 14"x17"-size film can
be printed within four minutes.

Eco Friendly: Designed for 30%
Energy Saving
The DRYPRO 873 uses heat processing in the
imaging step. In the normal printing operation,
we engineered a 30% reduction in electricity
consumption compared with previous types*.

It’s Small… It’s Fast– The Shortest
Film Pass Structure
To achieve a compact body and fast volume
processing, the hardware for the DRYPRO 873
has been redesigned. The use of a feed roller
in the film supply unit and the adoption of the
plate-method heating unit, have contributed
to creating the shortest film pass structure.
Speed and compactness are achieved.

Rapid Cooling Process
To increase the printing
speed, a new control has
been added to the cooling
process that comes at the
end of printing. To rapidly
cool films after image formation,
a film temperature
history control system
controls both heating and cooling. By accurately
halting heat development and greatly
increasing the cooling speed and time,
stable quality images can be quickly obtained.
In addition to the speed, the increased cooling
speed has enabled the drastic downsizing
of the unit, contributing to the compact
body size.
