1. Improved registration and press productivity
2. Reduced turnaround times from the shortened production process
3. Cost reduction through the elimination of film processing
4. Sharper, more accurate dots
5. More consistent quality and reduced labor costs
Inline connection to plate processor
The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA is equipped with a rear delivery conveyor. This allows exposed plates to be transferred inline to the plate processor of any manufacturer.
Semi-automated CtP processing
In addition, if the next new plate is set on set table during exposure, the next new plate is loaded automatically just after exposed plate is discharged to the processor.
An EQUIOS workflow system helps to achieve maximum productivity. Linking with EQUIOS enables non-stop automation while minimizing errors and production losses. Output to a CtP recorder is also easier than ever before.
Stable exposure beam
With the PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA, the exposure head and its builtin laser move as a single unit. This prevents any profile fluctuation caused by changes in the shape of the optical fiber and roduces a stable beam.
Fine imaging lens
The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA capitalizes on Screen's advanced optical technology. It features high refractive index glass and an impressive 13 element lens design for sharper imaging of half-tone dots. Proprietary technology also compensates for shifts in the focal position caused by environmental temperature variations.
Reliable plate securing system
The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA recorder features an automated clamping and vacuum system. This system can consistently and firmly secure a wide range of plate sizes, even during fast-rotation/ high-speed exposure. A plate is fixed to the drum by a unique slot equipped with a clamp and a vacuum attachment system.
The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA features Screen's unique and precise auto-balance system. It ensures the counter weights automatically adjust with every change of plate size, maintaining smooth and silent drum rotation. This system is easy to set up via the display menu without any technical intervention.
