Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter 2000 iCtP System
Space-saving & affordable. The PlateWriterTM is an affordable, metal Computer-to-Plate system which produces press-ready aluminium plates for small to mid-size commercial print and newspapers applications, with daylight operation and without the use of chemical processing. This small foot-print CtP solution is completely self-contained and its chemical free approach means no additional equipment (such as chemical processors or washout units) are required.
Digital & semi-automated. The PlateWriterTM produces digital CtP plates, which deliver accurate registration and high quality. In addition, the semi- automated plate registration system provides a versatile plate handling approach so multiple plate sizes and gauges can be used in parallel, with no changes. This makes the Glunz & Jensen PlateWriterTM suitable for commercial printers or smaller newspaper printers with one or more printing presses.
Inkjet technology delivers plates without chemistry. The PlateWriterTM applies a Liquid DotTM image on to non-photosensitive aluminium printing plates. The imaged plates are manually fed through an integrated finishing unit that dries the plates and bonds the liquid dots to the plate surface, making them capable of printing more than 50,000 impressions on press.
Benefits the environment.The PlateWriterTM has the lowest energy usage in its class and it eliminates water usage, chemicals and disposal costs. The Plate- WriterTM provides substantial long term cost savings, while being environmentally-friendly.
Suitable for spot and CMYK color jobs for small or low volume printers who make 100 to 500 plates per month. Compatible with 2-up press formats up to 459 x 610 mm.
