The PlateRite 2055Vi-S offers high-quality CTP output in an affordable, compact, flatbed unit.
And it isn't only the initial cost of the unit that is reasonable-to help keep maintenance costs even lower, the imaging system features a long-lasting violet laser light-source.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S is even space-efficient-its footprint is just 1,985 x 984 mm (78.2" x 38.8").
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S supports plate sizes ranging from 450 x 280 mm to 754 x 635 mm (17.7" x 11.0" to 29.7" x 25.0")*, and can output an impressive 36 plates/hour at 1200 dpi, all while maintaining consistently high quality.
With this kind of productivity, throughput is sure to increase dramatically, even for jobs that demand particularly high-quality output.
*Semi-automatic loading: 450 x 280 mm to 760 x 635 mm (17.7" x 11.0" to 29.9" x 25.0")
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S can be operated with an optional autoloader cassette that holds up to 50 plates.
This autoloader cassette features automatic interleaf detection and removal, as well as continuous plate feeding, and enables the unit to process up to 50 plates without operator intervention.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S can be connected to an optional inline processor that creates a fully automated process from start to finish.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S can be equipped with optional internal punch systems. When internal punch systems are used, the plates are punched immediately after being mounted on the bed.
This method provides much greater registration accuracy than either manual or offline punching, eliminates human error, and allows faster press makeready, for increased overall productivity.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S makes life easy for your operators by handling everything from plate loading to developing automatically*.
It can hold up to 50 plates in its media cassette, making it easy to output long runs of multiple pages with minimal effort.
*When used with the optional inline processor.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S features an advanced interleaf removal system that reduces operator labor.
After determining if the top sheet in the cartridge is metal or paper, the system automatically routes paper to the interleaf disposal area and plates to the imaging table.
The operator can remove the waste paper from the disposal area at his or her leisure.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S simplifies the output workflow by accepting preset parameters for a variety of printing presses and media sizes.
Parameters include plate size: grip/anti-grip size: image centering: margins: and punch configuration.
Media cassettes, which each feature an ID code, can be assigned a media type and destination.
The recorder automatically reads the ID code when the cassette is inserted and recalls the appropriate data.
This eliminates the time and trouble involved in entering this data each time the cassette is changed.
Unlike many drum platesetters, the Flatbed PlateRite 2055Vi-S doesn't subject plates to any strain during loading.
It simply loads them onto the table as is. This both protects the plates and makes it easy to handle a wide variety of plate sizes with precision.
A special plate placement system assures that plates are in the right position on the table, and a vacuum securing system prevents subsequent movement.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S's low-stress handling and accurate plate placement system combine to offer the imaging precision required even for demanding, high-quality work.
Precision imaging requires precision movement.
The PlateRite 2055Vi-S's imaging table moves across the imaging area with the aid of a precisely engineered transport system.
Since the table moves in only one plane, its movement is extremely stable and regular.
The smooth motion assures that the laser beam is just where it is needed at all times, so you get high repeatability even at high resolutions.
