Efficient, high-speed, multi-format CTP

Large, multi-format output from 4 to 48-page


The PlateRite Ultima Series can output large-format plates up to 2,900 x 1,350mm in size. It can also output plates as small as 650 x 550mm, putting these machines in a class of their own – true multi-format platesetters.

Advanced 1,024-channel imaging head


GLV™ (Grating Light Valve) technology has been used to develop a revolutionary multi-channel imaging head that enables remarkably high-speed and high-quality exposure. This cutting-edge imaging head features up to 1,024 channels that expose plates in wide swathes, enabling the PlateRite Ultima series to deliver unbeatable throughput without sacrificing quality.

Automatic inline plate punching


With optional inline punching, plates are punched immediately before being mounted on the drum. Inline punching provides greater registration accuracy than either manual or off-line punching. It also helps eliminate human error and supports faster press make-ready. Up to ten punch blocks can be mounted in the platesetter and then selected during output according to the plate size and press type required for the job.

Reliable automatic plate loading


Automation is a key element in the handling of large format plates in order to maximise the efficiency of the CTP production line. The PlateRite Ultima Series units can be incorporated into an automated production line with the addition of any of a variety of plate handling equipment options.

High quality, productive plate making


The PlateRite Ultima devices achieve optimal productivity when used in conjunction with Fujifilm’s range of thermal CTP plates. The high sensitivity of the plates allows the platesetter to image at its fastest speed.

Dual plate imaging


Not only can the advanced PlateRite Ultima large-format platesetters load a single large-size plate onto the drum, they can also load pairs of smaller plates together. Imaging pairs of plates increases productivity as plates need to be loaded and unloaded fewer times. Some models feature twin imaging heads that enable simultaneous imaging of two plates, for even higher productivity.
