In the course of miniaturization and increasing the speed of digital components, the development of large image storage units and the realization of a materialless (without film copies) final-page assembly is conceivable.

The first development of the company Hell is displayed 1984 on the IPEX (International Printing Machinery and Allied Trades Exhibition) in Birmingham.
The DC 380 serves as image data input device, later the high-performance scanner DC 3000 including various work preparation devices is added.
The film exposure of the final page is done with the system recorders R 3020 or R 3030, the offset plates will be added later.
