SCREEN PlateRite 4600 Series

SCREEN’s new PlateRite 4600Z, S and E CtP systems enable consistent production of high-quality printing plates. The high-end PlateRite 4600Z delivers an impressive throughput of up to 33 plates per hour.
The exposure heads used in the PlateRite 4600 series have been enhanced with the addition of new fiber laser diodes. These diodes enable the reproduction of sharper halftone dots, significantly improving print quality.
All systems can also be equipped with an option that supports plate sizes smaller than the standard settings (270 x 278 mm).


Accurate reproduction of halftone dots with proprietary developed exposure heads

To ensure more stable exposure, the light source is equipped with the same proven fiber laser diodes used in the PlateRite 8600 series. The resulting changes in the laser beam have improved the balance of vertical and horizontal lines, enabling sharper reproduction of halftone dots. This has led to a major increase in overall print quality.



Autoloader maximizes productivity

An autoloader system can be installed to automate all processes from plate loading through exposure, transport and developing to discharge. The autoloader supports extended periods of continuous operation and significantly increases both productivity and press operating ratios.



Wider range of supported plate sizes

Improved support for small size plates (optional)
The newly available small size option supports minimum plate size of 270 × 278 mm (10.7″ × 11″). This option provides increased flexibility when using letterpress systems.
Some limitations apply with this option. Please contact your nearest SCREEN sales representative for further details.
