DRYPRO MODEL 832HG

User-friendly

The DRYPRO 832HG is very user friendly. It is easy to use, warms up quickly, and is very quiet.
A clearly visible status light changes color to indicate "Ready", "Printing", and "Film Empty" conditions.

Environment-friendly design

The excellent low-noise design assures a pleasant environment. The actual running noise has been tuned to a low tone with a reduced high-temperature range, so that it gives the impression of being quieter than it actually is. While the overall noise has been suppressed, particular attention has been given to the standby noise, ensuring a quiet environment for clinics where standby operation accounts for most of the usage time.

Stable operation with no HDD

Hard drives store system software and data and, with that, there is always a risk that the disc will crash, bringing operation to a standstill. With the DRYPRO 832HG, we have eliminated the hard drive and introduced a design where the essential system software is run from compact flash memory and image data is managed by an external computer (CS-2/3 or Printlink5-IN), thereby contributing to stable operation.

High-quality images

A semiconductor laser and precision optics are merged to produce 78.6μm pixel size resulting in sharp, high-definition films.
The DRYPRO 832HG accepts 8-bit or 12-bit data and outputs with 14-bit density resolution to accurately reproduce the highest resolution images such as those from Regius CR.

Stable finished quality

The DRYPRO 832HG's density control function maintains the output density by automatically measuring a small density patch on every film.
The system also automatically calibrates itself whenever a new box of film is loaded.

Storing and Handling Dry Film

Dry image recording film SD-Q/SD-QC does not require a WET process. When storing and handling film, be sure to observe the following.

1. Storing and handling unused film

After confirming that film is packaged, store unused film, like ordinary film, in a cool, dark place (recommended temperature:10-23°C (50-73 °F)) where it will not be affected by radiation. If film is stored in a place where temperature is more than 30°C (86°F) for a long period of time, the quality of the film may change. When storing film in a film storage, it should be stored in a place where temperature is not likely to rise.

2. Storing and handling processed film (image)

  1. As heat-processed-type film is susceptible to high temperature or strong sunlight even after it's processed, it should be stored in a cool, dark place. When storing film for a long period of time, be sure to place it in a film bag and store it in a place where temperature is 25°C (77°F) or below. The rise in density or discoloration may occur more frequently as the temperature rises.
  2. If the film is stored at a temperature of 40°C (104°F) or higher, this may cause density changes or discoloration even over a short period of storage. Avoid leaving the film in a car in daytime, or using it with a hot lamp etc.
  3. As the film is susceptible to strong sunlight as well as temperature, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, or leaving it on a viewing screen for a long time.

    Dry film should not be cleaned with alcohol or cleaning agents that may cause density blotching and other defects. The film is resistant to water, so it may be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with water.
