Screen Graphic Solutions has launched its new PlateRite 8600NII series of eight page thermal CTP systems. These systems are equipped with high output fibre laser diode exposure heads, enabling outstanding productivity of up to 32 plates per hour as well as superior cost performance and energy savings. The mid range PlateRite 8600NII models will complement the flagship PlateRite 8900HDN models which can image up to 70 plates per hour.
All PlateRite 8600NII models feature the latest fibre laser diode exposure heads. These heads work with Screen’s proprietary clamp technologies and auto balance mechanism to enable stable, high speed exposure with top quality. The line up includes the Z, S and E models, allowing printing companies to choose the right model for their production requirements.
The Z model is equipped with 96 channel exposure heads, supporting output of up to 32 plates per hour. The S and E models have 64 and 32 channel heads respectively, for outputs of 24 and 14 plates per hour.
In addition, all models feature major functionality improvements such as a power saving mode that reduces energy consumption during idling, producing energy savings of around 60% during operation and 73% during standby.
