Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter 3600 Pro 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.
Enhanced format model with landscape plate loading for an even higher throughput. Suitable for commercial printers, small and medium newspapers, and some book printing. Compatible with 2-up, 4-up and 8-up press formats up to 914 x 1140 mm.
- Affordability – Significantly smaller investment than the cost of current, laser-based plate imaging systems.
- Ease-of-use – Operates in daylight conditions; no pressroom changes are required to plate clamping or press chemistries.
- Reduces plate production costs – The cost per plate is less than the cost of conventional metal platemaking methods.
- Environmentally friendly – No disposal of processing chemicals into the waste stream eliminating disposal costs.
- Suitable for commercial printers, small and medium newspapers, and some book printing.
- Compatible with 2-up, 4-up and 8-up press formats up to 914 x 1140 mm.
