"It's time to come out of the darkroom and into the light."
Computer to Metal Plate Systems from Glunz & Jensen
Simplify your plate making process and eliminate costly chemicals!
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, 3000, and 3600 models offer affordable metal plate CTP solutions that are environmentally friendly and use no processing chemicals.
The Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter iCTP 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 thermal or light sensitive coatings, the PlateWriter can be place anywhere in the shop. No dark room required! The PlateWriter 2000 and 3600 models use powerful Harlequin RIP technology allowing your Mac or PC to print directly to a metal plate like a normal desktop printer prints to paper.
