Computer to Plate Systems from Glunz & Jensen

Upgrade your PrePress area in 2013 and start saving money!  Since 1973, Glunz & Jensen has developed, manufactured, and marketed equipment for the prepress industry. Their product range covers almost all equipment used in prepress for offset printing in modern printing companies.  The PlateWriter series 2000, 2500, and the new 3000 models offer affordable metal plate CTP solutions that are enviromentally friendly and use no processing chemicals.

The PlateWriter computer to metal plate systems bring you out of the dark room and into the light.  PlateWriter iCTP reduces  print job costs by eliminating film, eliminating developing and processing chemicals, eliminating UPS Hazardous shipping charges, eliminating chemical disposal costs, eliminating special dark room space, and reducing labor costs.  Eliminate these costs and put that money back in your business.  On this page, we have an Adobe pdf. with a cost analysis for producing metal plates on a PlateWriter system for different size presses in one to four color configurations.  Since conventionally grained aluminum plates do not have thernal or light sensitive coatings, the PlateWriter can be place anywhere in the shop. 
No dark room required!  The PlateWriter 2000, 2500, and the new 3000 models use powerful Harlequin RIP technology allowing your Mac or PC to print directly to it like you would a normal desktop printer.

The PlateWriter 2000 model is pictured at the right.  Click on the picture for a larger view.  The 2000 model will handle plate sizes from 8" x 11" up to 18.1" x 24" with a maximum image area of 17" x 24" .  This is a perfect fit for print shops that have A.B.Dick 360, 9800/9900 series presses, Heidelberg QM46/PM46 and GTO series presses, Ryobi 2800/3200/3302 series presses, and more.  The 2000 model has two imaging resolutions 1440 x 1440 and 2800 x 2800 dpi to deliver ultra high definition for high quality printing.  Plate run lengths up to 50,000 impressions!  Stochastic screening optimized for iCTP ensure moire free prints.

To video below will show you how the PlateWriter 2000 operates.  To use, place a metal plate onto the alignment table and the PlateWriter automatically loads the plate and uses the optical sensors to detect the lead edge and check for skew, ensuring plate registration.  Once a job is released from the RIP workstation, the PlateWriter uses high definition inkjet technology to jet a patented Liquid Dot chemical solution onto the plate.  Once the plate exits the print station, it is placed in the integrated finishing unit located below the print station to finish the plates by bonding the dots to the plate surface and automatically gumming the plate.  The plates can be sent to press or stored in a job file.  No special fountain solution required so you can use your existing fountain solutions and inks.

The tight registration from plate to plate reduce make ready time by reducing/eliminating horizontal/vertical/twist adjustments between print units.  The PlateWriter 2000 has it's own computer and monitor with a visible job que.  Jobs can be sent to the PlateWriter 2000 from any computer in the shop and the pressman can print his own plates and easily make additionial plates if needed.
