PlateRite 8600MII Series

The PlateRite 8600MII-ZA/SA is another high-quality thermal CTP recorder built with the renowned technology and expertise that have made Dainippon Screen the world’s number one CTP manufacturer.

Key Benefits:
  • Screen’s unique thermal external drum technology is combined with its highprecision optics to enable fast and high-quality plate output.
  • As there is no need for complex processing and intermediate steps, such as outputting layout data to film or exposing plates using film, the plate production process with CTP is much simpler than traditional platemaking.
  • CtP eliminates paste-up errors and foreign-matter contamination, contributing to increased efficiency in both the platemaking and printing process.
  • CtP output produces sharper halftone dots than traditional platemaking methods, and therefore dramatically improves printing quality.
