The Crestline® Altra Series delivers instant ink and water balance without waiting for molletons to dampen. It operates without alcohol, reduces paper waste and delivers incredibly sharp, bright color with less ink. The Altra features two oscillation nips to improve the milling of ink and water. This unique feature provides a smoother, more uniform film of water across the plate and the ability to run drier. Altra Series can be used with an existing recirculation system or the Accel AccuChill™.
The Altra gives the operator the flexibility of adjusting the moisture, while running, to meet each job's specific needs. Altra dampeners have no end seals to wear out or replace. Color changes and end of the day cleanup are automatic because the dampener cleans up with the ink train. The Altra Series retains all the existing ink rollers for maximum inking power & efficiency. Installation can be done quickly without altering the press. Typically, a four color press can be converted in under two days and one or two color presses can be converted and printing the same day.
Instant ink & water balance - no more waiting for molletons to get damp before printing
Runs without alcohol - Altra's unique design provides a thinner film of moisture to the plate
Paper waste - since color is achieved in only a few sheets, paper waste is decreased significantly
"Double-nip" oscillation - the oscillator is located between the form and intermediate rollers for improved milling of ink & water
Removable form roller - Altra uses the existing water form position for easier maintenance
Installs without changing the ink train configuration
Adaptable to any circulator

Top ten reasons to buy a T-Head 1. With the T-51 you can produce two-color work, with precise register, with one pass through the press. There is no need to wait for the first color to dry before running the second one. There is no second-color register waste & two-color production is nearly doubled! 2. Four-color processes can be produced in just two passes! 3. You can print single-color on your offset press by simply disengaging the T-51. The T-51 one can then stanby until your next run. 4. If that isn't satisfying, you can print single-color with the T-51! 5. Takes up no more floor space than your offset press. 6. Applications include: business cards, letterheads, envelopes, two-color thermography, duo-tones and/or all your two-color & four color work 7. Uses all the same inks, fountain solutions, plates & other printing supplies as your current press. 8. Operating controls are similiar to your current press to reduce operator training time. 9. Greater operating economy & efficiency plus increased versatility. 10.Townsend innovation & dependability.
