Screen launches baby flexo platesetter

Screen Europe has launched a new flexo/letterpress platesetter, the PlateRite FX870IIE, an entry level version of its PlateRite FX870II thermal CtP engine, having about half the productivity of the more expensive model and with an option to image thermal offset plates. It can produce flexo plates at a rate of 2 sqm/hour (approximately four 762 x 635mm plates per hour) depending on plate sensitivity. Plates can be loaded in any size from 100 x 100mm up to 870 x 762mm without any additional handling or masking of the drum required.
Resolution ranges from 2,400dpi up to a maximum of 4,800dpi and it also supports Screen’s Flexo Dot screening that is specifically designed to improve the highlight areas in flexo and letterpress printing.
The new model is specifically designed for print service providers looking to enter the growing sticker and label printing markets.
