Screen Europe has increased the flexibility and productivity of its PlateRite Ultima 16000 CTP series with the introduction of a new multi-cassette autoloader that enables the large format platesetter to operate for more than 9 hours, automatically and without operator intervention.
The world's fastest platesetter has gone into production at one of the most modern printers in Southern Germany; W. Kohlhammer Druckerei GmbH & Co. Alongside Verenigde Offsetbedrijven (VOB), prepress and printing house based in Hardenberg, Netherlands, both companies have boosted plate production with Screen's new large-format 32-page PlateRite Ultima CTP system. To win the order, Screen demonstrated that their machine could image 46 B1 plates an hour, a figure that rivals were unable to match.
