Fuji Platerite 4300 CtP
High quality external drum thermal platesetter available in manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic versions, and capable of producing up to 21 (S version) press ready plates per hour (2400 dpi).
Compatible with most B2 press formats for maximum flexibility
With a maximum plate size of 830mm x 660mm x 0.3, the PlateRite 4300 is compatible with most B2 presses. Integrated punching enables the production of press ready plates for B2 commercial sheetfed presses. Custom punches are available, as are a range of offline transfer punches to meet all formats.
Four configurations of the PlateRite 4300 allow the system to develop as your business grows
Four configurations exist with the PlateRite 4300. In its most basic form, the platesetter will stand alone requiring both manual load and unload. A low cost upgrade can provide automatic unloading to either an online processor or plate stacker, with a reduction in manual intervention. If full automation is required, two different single cassette autoloader options and one multi-cassette autoloader are available. With single cassette (one plate size at any time) there is the choice of either 50 plate manual de-interleaf or 100 plate auto de-interleaf. The multi-cassette autoloader accommodates up to 3 cassettes, each with a capacity of up to 100 plates. It can automatically de-interleaf and select from one of the three cassettes.
Easy to use, service and maintain
Used in conjunction with Fujifilm's thermal plates, you can confidently work in daylight for extended periods. Benefiting from up to 32 (S version) independent laser diodes, production is maintained should one of the diodes fail. Replacement of the defective diode is a quick task for the trained engineer, unlike some other thermal systems where the complete imaging head could require replacement.
Up to 21 x B2 press ready plates an hour (at 2400 dpi)
Utilising some of the latest thermal imaging technology, the PlateRite 4300 produces up to 21 x B2 plates per hour at 2400 dpi (11pph with the standard version). Benefiting from a high-precision plate clamping and automated balancing system, the drum is able to rotate at up to 1000 rpm. The standard version can accept a field upgrade to increase productivity up to 21 plates per hour.
High quality and productive plate making when used with Fujifilm Brillia thermal CTP plates
The PlateRite 4300 achieves optimal performance when used with Brillia thermal CTP plates including the new processless Brillia HD PRO-T. The high sensitivity of the plates allows the platesetter to image at its fastest speed of 1000rpm.
With CTP so close to the press, you can't afford to take risks
Launched in 2000, the original PlateRite 4300 established an excellent reputation for quality and reliability. The PlateRite 4300 has been re-engineered to meet the demands of many B2 printers. With various automated options available, the system continues to meet customer expectations and is the foundation for many print production facilities.
