Glunz & Jensen iCtP PlateWriter 2500 – 071423000139A

Joining our second and third generations of iCtPTM systems, the PlateWriterTM 2500 is positioned as a mid-range unit, supporting a wider range of plate sizes and formats than the PlateWriterTM 2000. Like the entire range of PlateWriterTM systems, it delivers press ready aluminum plates without the use of chemical processing, for a wider range of litho offset presses. Setting new standards in the cost, flexibility and speed the PlateWriterTM 2500 delivers plates for all 2-up press and most 4-up presses by applying a patented Liquid DotTM image on to non-photosensitive aluminum printing plates. The imaged plates are then manually fed through an integrated finishing unit that dries the plates and bonds the liquid dots to the plate surface. The PlateWriterTM’s semi-automated plate registration system provides a versatile plate handling approach. This means multiple plate sizes and gauges can be used with no changes. Of course the real advantage of iCtPTM is reduced time making plates, and the fact that the accurate digital plates reduce “time to fit” on press, not to mention the daylight operation and chemistry free approach which makes iCtPTM the ideal low maintenance plate making solution. In addition, there are several possible upgrade options available for the PlateWriterTM 2500 to increase the maximum plate sizes, increase the imaging speed and upgrade the registration mechanisms.
