Thermal Plate Recorder

Semi automatic thermal CTP recorder

The world’s No.1 CtP manufacturer, Dainippon Screen, presents a new, compact model that features everything you need to create a fully digital platemaking workflow. The PlateRite 8600MII is a semi automatic thermal CtP recorder that combines Screen’s unique external drum technology with high-precision optics to enable timely, high-quality plate output. When you use CtP, there is no need for complex processing and intermediate steps such as outputting layout data to film or exposing plates using film, which makes processing much simpler than the traditional platemaking methods of the past. The use of CtP also frees you from concerns about paste-up errors and foreign-matter contamination, while contributing to increased efficiency in both the platemaking and printing processes. Best of all, CtP output produces sharper halftone dots than traditional platemaking methods, and therefore dramatically improves printing quality.
