PlateRite 8900 - page 4

An autoloader system can be installed to automate the entire
platemaking process, from plate loading through imaging and
transport to developing. The autoloader enables extended
periods of continuous operation and significantly increases
both productivity and press operating ratios.
Loading of plates during processing
The MA-L8900 allows plates to
be loaded into the cassette during
continuous operation. This avoids
downtime when additional plates are
required and maximizes productivity
and press operating ratios.
MA-L8900 multi-cassette autoloader
The MA-L8900 comes
standard with three plate
cassettes (up to five as an
option) and full automation
of both plate supply and
cassette switching. Each
cassette holds up to 100 plates,* for a maximum of 500 plates stored
in the autoloader. Even if different plate sizes are loaded into separate
cassettes, the autoloader flexibly switches between the cassettes
as required. Loading all cassettes with the same plate size enables
extended periods of continuous operation.

SA-L8900 single-cassette autoloader
The SA-L8900 features a single cassette that holds up to 100 plates*,
as well as automatic detection and removal of interleaf paper. Its
transport system only
contacts the rear side of a
plate, preventing damage to
the sensitive emulsion side.
Manual loading is also possible, giving operators the flexibility to select
plate sizes as required.

The ergonomic design ensures easy

to cassettes.
Remote monitoring function
• Constant checking of CtP status from a remote location
CtP operating conditions and output history can easily be checked
from a remote location via Web browser or email*. An external
PC can also be effectively used as a substitute operation panel,
allowing users at remote locations to make CtP settings and send
commands. In addition, inclusion of a self-diagnosis function allows
the confirmation of correct operation of the CtP and autoloader
units. This provides straightforward assessment of required parts
if a problem occurs, enabling rapid recovery of the equipment.
Emails* are also automatically forwarded to a service center,
allowing an in-depth understanding of the operation status of the
equipment. This information can be used during maintenance,
repairs, and periodic inspections, ensuring the system remains in
optimal condition at all times (support contract required).
* Can be forwarded to up to five email addresses
• Minimization of plate exchange/replacement times
If an autoloader is connected, the number of plates remaining
in the cassettes is monitored in real time. When there are only a
few plates left, an instruction to prepare for cassette replacement
can be displayed on either the Web browser or operation panel.
As cassettes can be moved to
the plate insertion position from a
remote location, the time required
for plate exchange and replacement
is minimized. This contributes to the
achievement of an even higher CtP
operation rate.
