Platinum’s flatbed technology is ideal for metal plates. The removal of manual planning and platemaking means savings in time for stripping, retouching and film exposure - all adding up to an increase in profit margins for you. The plates produced by any Platinum in the range are exceptionally clean and no retouching is required. The sharpness of the first generation image means the quality of the printed document is noticeably better. The Platinum front-end uses one of the fastest platforms currently on the market with HighWater’s Torrent RIP, based on Harlequin’s ScriptWorks, which allows multiple jobs to be progressed at any one time. Consistency is guaranteed with one RIP file providing output for both your proofing device and the Platinum CtP.

A computer-to-plate system using metal plates is now available for the B3 press. The marriage of technology and scale that has previously been elusive has been developed for you by HighWater Designs’ innovative engineers. In the intensely competitive B3 market, cutting-edge technology will distinguish you from the rest. HighWater brings you that opportunity, with a CtP design which has been tried and tested in the B2 market.

With the emphasis today on short lead-times and increased productivity, this B3 format Platinum gives you a significant advantage: it outputs high quality plates, with accuracy and repeatability characteristics that can only be achieved by digital imaging.

The physical operation of the Platinum 2218 B3 device is exactly the same as a traditional print down frame: pre-punched plates are mounted onto precise custom-made registration bars to accomodate plate sizes ranging up to B3+ (558 x 460 mm). It takes just over three minutes to load, expose and unload a 2540 dpi B3 metal plate. Platinum flatbed technology is ideal for metal plates and 52cm presses.

With its simple manual loading and unloading, Platinum’s innovative design and quality of manufacture have resulted in a system with excellent reliability and low maintenance. Platinum 2218 offers a technology you can trust at a size you can afford.

Features

  • Proven technology - same design principles as the successful Platinum 2230 device operating throughout the world.
  • Accuracy – each plate is positioned on pins in the flatbed of the Platinum, prior to exposure, giving consistent plate-to-plate registration.
  • Small footprint - flatbed B3 device.
  • Easy to operate - simple manual loading and unloading of prepunched metal plates.
  • Rapid – at 1270 dpi the plate can be imaged in 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • Management software – enabling the platemaker to verify the plate layout.
  • Blue-violet laser technology - offering the ability to work in yellow, near daylight working conditions.
  • Confidence - use the same CtP RIP to send proof output to inkjets, colour copiers or dye sublimation proofers before ripping to the Platinum.
  • Affordable – produces a high quality product with a highly-competitive return on investment.
