Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter Infuse

A fusion of proven function, features and flexibility from
earlier PlateWriter™ models, reimagined with modular functionality. Suitable for commercial printers, small and medium newspapers, and some book printing. Compatible with 2-up and 4-up press formats up to 650 x 914 mm.

The imaged plates are manually fed through the integrated finishing unit which dries the plates and bonds the liquid dots to the plate surface. Inkjet technology is used to apply a Liquid Dot™ image to non-photosensitive, conventionally grained aluminium plates. Use the manual or semi-automated plate loading mechanism with optical sensors to deliver digitally accurate plates. Plates have no light sensitive coating meaning they can be handled and imaged in normal daylight. The PlateWriter™ delivers standard metal plates for your press which requires no pressroom changes. Simple, clean operation with no mess and no fuss. Advanced inkjet technology means you only handle cartridges. Supplied with an industry standard Harlequin-based Xitron RIP on a powerful PC platform ready to accept jobs from Mac or PC.

Infuse your current iCtP™ machine with new life! Upgrade any PlateWriter™ 2000/2400/3000 or NewsWriter™ model to a PlateWriter Infuse in one day – renew your prepress and reduce waste. Simply move your current computer and finishing unit to the readybuilt Infuse-kit and you are ready to go!

Space-saving & affordable • The PlateWriter Infuse is an affordable, metal Computer-to-Plate system which produces press-ready aluminum plates for small to mid-size commercial print 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 • High quality digital CtP plates with accurate registration are guaranteed with the PlateWriter Infuse. Its semi-automated plate registration system provides a versatile plate handling approach, so multiple plate sizes and gauges can be used interchangeably. This makes the
Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter Infuse suitable for both commercial printers and smaller newspaper printers with one or more printing presses. Inkjet

technology delivers plates without chemistry • A water-based Liquid Dot image is applied to non-photosensitive aluminum printing plates. The imaged plates are manually fed through an integrated finishing unit which dries the plates and bonds the Liquid Dot™ to the plate surface, making CtP plates capable of printing more than 50,000 impressions.
