Energy Savings Dramatically Reduce Running Costs
Energy use during operation is reduced by up to 60%.
A Power Saving Mode allows energy savings during idling.
Energy use during standby is reduced by up to 73%.
All models are compatible with chemical-less plates from a range of manufacturers.
The PlateRite 8600NII S 4K model delivers high-resolution 4,000 dpi support. This is perfect for everything from high-resolution art printing to the accurate reproduction of small text sizes like those required for bond and other certificate printing. This also enables the PlateRite 8600NII S to output high-quality 4,000 dpi 3D lenticular printing plates.

A full range of advanced features that support high quality and high productivity
Regular monitoring of production status from a remote location
Remote monitoring allows users to keep an eye on CtP operating conditions and output history from a remote location, using a web browser or e-mail. E-mails can also be sent automatically to the service center and entered into a database for use in maintenance, repairs, and periodic inspections, ensuring that the CtP recorder is in optimal operating condition at all times.
Stable drum rotation
The PlateRite 8600NII features a unique auto-balancing feature. The operator simply selects the appropriate pre-registered plate size and type during setup, and the recorder automatically makes the necessary adjustments to ensure perfect drum balance.
This results in stable, high-speed drum rotation for all the plate sizes and thicknesses handled by the recorder.
Maximized available image area
The minimum clamp size that can be used with the The PlateRite 8600NII is 8 mm (optional), for both the leading and trailing edge clamps.
The available imaging area is extremely large, so plates can be used for a wide range of printing press types. This helps reduce the amount of effort involved in plate handling and increases printing press operating ratios, thereby contributing significantly to increased productivity.
Screen has developed a unique plate clamping system that allows the drum to rotate at extremely high speeds, for significantly higher productivity. A function that makes it possible to change the position of the clamps depending on the plate size being used ensures support for a wide range of plate sizes.
Superior registration accuracy
The PlateRite 8600NII features an automatic inline punching system that helps enable perfect registration on press. Plates are punched by this automatic inline punching system immediately before being loaded onto the drum. The registration punch holes ensure consistent plate placement on the drum, when used in conjunction with standard registration pins. This helps eliminate imaging variations caused by improper plate placement, and ensures superior registration accuracy.
When optional printing press punch blocks*1 are used, the imaged plates can be loaded directly onto the press after output.
The use of printing press punch blocks during plate output eliminates the need for manual punching later on in the workflow, ensures excellent registration accuracy, and creates the foundation for perfect results on press. It also dramatically shortens press make-ready time and improves press operating ratios, for even better overall productivity.
*1 Up to eight individual punch blocks can be selected and mounted, depending on the plate sizes and printing press types being used.
Upgrade to create the optimal CtP environment
The PlateRite 8600NII units all have certain parts that can be replaced to upgrade them to higher model types (upgrade is a paid option). These flexible recorders can be upgraded as productivity needs change to create an optimal production environment.
