Ten years of inkjet CTP experience in the new Glunz & Jensen PlateWriter 3600

PlateWriter Pro 3600Inkjet CTP, producing offset plates in daylight without developer, has been promising to be the solution for offset printers with a small budget for more than 10 years. However, this supposedly clever technology has had only limited success. The quality of the image and the inconsistent impressions hindered complete acceptance in the industry. Glunz & Jensen, one of the pioneers in this technology, promises to have a professional solution with the new iCTP PlateWriter Pro 3600. The contemporary design produces landscape format plates up to 915 x 1140 mm. iCTP does not need chemicals, the plate is instantly usable. Unfortunately the system is not entirely environmentally friendly as solvent inks are necessary for the Liquid Dot technology which delivers printable images on standard, non light sensitive, aluminium plates. According to Glunz & Jensen up to 50,000 prints are possible with these iCTP plate. When the PlateWriter Pro 3600, which was introduced during the Graph Expo in Chicago, will be available in Europe is not yet known.
