PlateRite FX1524N/FX1200N

Flexo letterpress CTP
Provides higher quality and efficiency for flexo & letterpress printing

The PlateRite FX series are high-quality, easy to use, reliable CtP recorders that offer optimal flexo/letterpress plate output for printing and prepress companies. They can image the black mask layer of photopolymer plates directly, thereby eliminating the need for film and other intermediate processing.
The PlateRite FX1524N/FX1200N is designed for a wide range of uses, including the production of labels, flexible packaging, cartons, and corrugated packaging.

PlateRite FX1524N/FX1200N


  • Consistent plate qualityThe PlateRite FX1524N and FX1200N eliminate many of the problems associated with platemaking using film, including image unevenness, problems caused by dust, and UV scattering. They also solve problems inherent in going from film to plate, such as misalignment of the film during platemaking and registration errors arising from stretching of the film. This helps to ensure consistent plate quality and reduces wastage with fewer plates having to be re-output due to errors.
  • Proven technologyThe light source used by the PlateRite FX series, a multi-channel laser diode, is the same type of laser as those used in SCREEN's traditional offset CtP recorders. This proven, reliable, high-powered laser images the black mask layer of photopolymer plates. In addition to enabling sharp imaging, the PlateRite FX series’ light source is both durable and inexpensive to operate.
  • High-quality plate outputUnlike traditional printing plates, plates used in the CtP process have stable output for both highlight relief patterns and shadow cutouts, which reproduces the minimum and maximum halftone dots with high accuracy.
    This dramatically increases quality from the highlights to the shadows, across a wide range of image densities.
  • Easy OperationWhen using plates with a height of 1,067 mm (42.0"), both the leading and trailing edges can be fixed with clamps to simplify operation. The plates are automatically loaded and then accurately positioned simply by pushing a button. It is also possible to mount the plates manually. This combination of methods ensures they are optimally positioned according to their size.
