The low-chemistry PlateRite 8000N series is said to use less energy than its PlateRite 8000 predecessors, as well offering increased throughput.
Screen Australia technical sales manager Peter Scott told ProPrint that as well as being “more ecologically sound”, the N series has been developed to better handle low-chemistry plates from a range of manufacturers.
The PlateRite 8800N-S (pictured), for example, is capable of high-speed exposure of up to 36 plates per hour, a 12.5% increase in productivity, and using up to 28% less power per plate compared with the PlateRite 8800S.
The new series also features Spekta AM/FM hybrid screening, which is designed to reduce the overall amount of ink required when printing.
Each platesetter in the N-series handles a minimum plate size of 304x370mm.
The series will be distributed locally through Altech and Ferag. Fujifilm will also OEM the range.
