PlateRite Ultima 16000N-Z/S/E

16 page Thermal Plate Recorder
High-performance CtP system featuring industry-leading productivity, operability and energy efficiency

The PlateRite Ultima 16000NⅡ is the ideal output device for 4-, 8- and 16-page plates. The most productive platesetter in its class, the PlateRite Ultima 16000NⅡ produces plates for materials as diverse as black-and-white books and multicolor packaging. It incorporates innovative technologies that help ensure consistently high quality, even when imaging onto the largest supported plates.

Details

  • Industry-leading productivity enables faster turnaroundUse of the the GLV-equipped imaging heads creates significant improvements in the optical system, producing more uniform distribution of illumination. A high-precision auto-focus mechanism also allows the output of our proprietary Spekta 2 hybrid screening and Randot X 20 (20 μm) FM screening.* The Z model is equipped with a 1,024 channel imaging head that enables the production of an impressive 42 plates per hour. The S and E models also feature 512 channel heads, with respective throughputs of up to 29 and 17 plates per hour.
  • Energy-saving design dramatically reduces running costsWe assess the environmental impact of all our products as a form of design review. The PlateRite Ultima 16000N series has been developed with the goals of minimizing energy use and environmental impact while maximizing safety.
    ●Energy use during operation is reduced by up to 55%.*
    ●A power-saving mode allows energy savings during idling.
    ●Energy use during standby is reduced by up to 83%.*
    ●All models are compatible with chemical-less plates from a range of manufacturers.
    ●The use of a registration punch-less system cuts running costs.
  • Autoloader system boosts press operating ratiosAll three models are equipped with an MA-L16000N II autoloader system that automates the entire platemaking process, from loading through imaging and transport to developing and unloading. The MA-L16000N II comes standard with three plate cassettes (up to six as an option) and full automation of both plate supply and cassette switching. Each cassette holds up to 75 plates,* for a maximum of 450 stored in the autoloader. Even if different plate sizes are loaded into separate cassettes, the autoloader flexibly switches between the cassettes as required. This greatly extends the length of continuous operation, boosting press operating ratios and productivity as well as efficiency.
    * For 0.3 mm plate
  • Advanced support boosts system reliabilityUsers can easily monitor and control their system from a remote location via Web browser or e-mail.* An external PC can also be effectively used as a substitute operation panel to manage CtP settings. E-mails are automatically forwarded to a service center, providing an in-depth understanding of the operation status of the equipment. This information can be used during maintenance and periodic inspections to ensure the system remains in optimal condition at all times.
    * Can be forwarded to up to five e-mail addresses
