The excellent design means the unit emits less noise for a user-friendly working environment. The actual noise is turned to the lower tones with little high-frequency tones, making users feel the unit is quieter than the actual noise level. The overall noise, especially noise during the standby run, has been reduced. Even where the standby run is often used as an imager for the filmless era, it can provide a quiet working environment.
The image interpolation processing (pixel replication/function interpolation) has been enhanced, and intensity conversion processing has been adopted, which automatically recognizes images and letters in the images, executes proper processing, and displays smooth images and sharp letters.
The DRYPRO 873 has an automatic density control function that prints constant exposure density batch onto the film, automatically measures the density with the built-in density meter, and controls the finishing density. Furthermore, the automatic calibration at film exchange enables image printing with consistent image quality.
As for films for CR/modality (SD-Q) and digital mammography, the silver ion capacity that is pivotal for image formation on dry films has been greatly boosted and the ingredients of developer have changed to achieve highly sensitive, fast developing. As a result, sharp, stable images are swiftly provided.
One pack of daylight package contains 125 sheets that can be handled under room light. Both blue base and clear base are available depending on the purpose
With the DRYPRO 873, the developing process has been fully reviewed to respond to fast and mass volume processing. Pre-heating the film from the early stage of film transfer is to be implemented. In addition to reducing unstable temperature areas when heating films, fast mass volume processing and excellent density stability have been achieved by dividing the heat developing part into five parts and closely controlling the process. Ten sheets of 14"×17" -size film can be printed within four minutes.
To increase the printing speed, in addition to increasing the speed of image formation, a completely 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 that controls both heating and cooling has been adopted. By accurately halting and heat development and greatly increasing the cooling speed and time (some quarter) compared with previous equipment, stable quality images can be swiftly obtained even in centralized processing. In addition to the speed, the increased cooling speed has enabled the drastic downsizing of the unit, contributing to the compact body size.
