The S and E models deliver 43 and 34 plates an hour respectively, with the additional capability to combine high-precision halftone dots with a 4,000 dpi output to produce photo-quality printing. 3D lenticular output mode is available on all models to support crisp 3D printing. Features such as these support high value-added printing to enhance differentiation in the marketplace.

Considerable flexibility is a strong feature of this new Screen PlateRite series. All models can handle a variety of plate sizes from 304 x 305 mm to 1,165 x 950 mm making it ideal to support a wide range of offset presses. In addition, a new autoloader design features improved operability and flexibility. The ability to load plates during continuous exposure, results in increased production volumes and the ability to keep pace with the needs of multiple jobs and high-speed presses.
