Press-ready aluminium plates - no chemical processing.
The PlateWriter™2000 is the industry's first inkjet Computer-to-Plate system capable of producing press-ready aluminum plates without the use of chemical processing.
The PlateWriter™2000 inkjet Computer-to-Plate system is an innovative technology that sets new standards in the cost, flexibility and speed of offset printing for small to medium format printing.
Affordability – Significantly lower 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
High quality output – FM or stochastic screening capable of emulating 175 conventional line screening
Flexibility – Any plate size in 2-up formats, wide range of thicknesses from 0.15 to 0.20 mm (0.006 to 0.008”)
