This year at Print13, Glunz & Jensen will demonstrate a mix of product solutions from each of our business areas, including prepress solutions for both the offset and flexo industries. Here is a small idea of what you can expect to see at Print 13:
Raptor+ 85 Chemfree plate processing
Raptor+ 85 Chemfree is the ideal plate processing equipment solution for any medium size commercial printer or newpaper. Raptor+ Chemfree provides high-quality processing of low chemistry violet plates. The processor incorporates innovative full featured processing in a compact, space saving “small footprint” application.
It is prepared for full unattended operation and can be used in an automated prepress line, fully integrated with both CtP and post processor plate automation. Raptor+ combines reliability, flexibility and automation to meet the needs of any customer in the medium segment.
Shown with the Raptor+ 85 Chemfree is the Compact Stacker 85/65. The Compact Stacker family provides a very simple and compact plate stacking solution that integrates perfectly with any processor or CtP device. The Compact Stacker utilizes a simple knock-down construction to save space and cost during shipment,
and uses gravity to move the plate to the integrated stacking tray. Available in three sizes, the Compact Stacker can used with the fastest plate processors or CtP devices on the market and can store up to 100 plates.
Setting new standards in cost, flexibility and speed, the Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter Series produces digital
CtP plates in daylight and without the use of processing chemicals. The accurate registration and high quality inkjet imaging produces a plate which provides many of the benefits of digital imaging, while delivering a conventional offset plate. Conventional offset printing allows you to increase your profits by reducing your running costs when printing jobs over 500 impressions. Plates produced are suitable for up to 50,000 impressions.
The PlateWriter 3000 is suitable for small to mid-size commercial printers interested in upgrading to a price competitive CtP solution covering 2- and 4-up plate formats. PlateWriter solutions are also available in smaller 2-up and larger 8-up format sizes. With nearly 1,200 iCtP systems installed world-wide, PlateWriter systems have proven themselves to be environmentally friendly, energy efficient and provide a long-term cost savings.
The NewsWriter XL is an affordable, metal Computer-to-Plate system which produces press-ready aluminium plates, suitable for small and medium size newspapers, commercial printers and some larger format book printers. This small foot print CtP solution is completely self-contained and its chemical- free approach means no additional equipment (such as chemical processors or washout units) is required.
The NewsWriter produces digital CtP plates, which deliver accurate registration and high quality. In addition, the semi-automated plate registration system provides a versatile plate handling approach so multiple plate sizes and gauges can be used in parallel, with no changes. This makes the Glunz & Jensen NewsWriter suitable for the smaller newspaper printer with one or more printing presses, who also does commercial printing work.
Inkjet technology delivers plates without chemistry; The NewsWriter applies a Liquid Dot image on to non-photosensitive aluminium printing plates. The imaged plates are manually fed through an integrated finishing unit that dries the plates and bonds the liquid dots to the plate surface, making them capable of printing up to 50,000 impressions on press.
