Xante Corp., Mobile, Ala., has introduced a wider plate option for its PlateMaker 3 computer to plate solution. The new option allows for plates up to 340 mm wide, up 10 mm from its previous maximum. The new option is designed for users of the Heidelberg Printmaster QM 46. The company says it expanded the plate size in order to help economize the CTP process and address the trend of shorter print runs and an increase in the number of jobs requiring spot color.
Xante's 340 mm option also adds a Pin Bar Alignment feature, which makes it possible to print adjustable vertical lines at the top of the plate, facilitating more acurate punches on each plate for users printing two- and three-color work.
Other features include:
The new 340 mm option is available as a $495 addon to the PlateMaker 3. For more information, visit http://www.xante.com.
