Quick economical prepress solution, XANTE's PlateMaker 3

The perfect solution for computer-to-plate, camera-ready art, and proofing, the PlateMaker 3 prints on plain paper and Myriad 2 polyester-based plates that are immediately ready for press.

The PlateMaker 3 is an extremely efficient alternative to traditional platemaking. By printing directly onto plate material, the darkroom is completely eliminated. Computer-to-plate avoids excessive time and labor, which results in quicker turn-around. The PlateMaker 3 allows you to accept more jobs and complete them in a timely manner, resulting in cost savings and increased profits for your company.

A state-of-the-art solution, the PlateMaker 3's benefits include high quality output with 1200 x 1200 dpi, upgradeable to 2400 x 2400 dpi. The PlateMaker 3 also provides the reliability, assurance of compatibility, and high performance of true Adobe PostScript 3. Other benefits include oversized output up to 13" x 35.5", a high speed RISC processor, and patented technologies such as X-ACT backcurling delta (XANTE's Accurate Calibration Technology).

Plate quality is critical to computer-to-plate printing; you can rely on the quality and durability of Myriad 2 polyester plates manufactured by Agfa for XANTE. Myriad 2 plates have press characteristics more like traditional metal plates, while eliminating the hazardous chemicals associated with conventional processes.

XANTE's ColourLaser and PlateMaker 3 are state-of-the-art tools that meet graphic and prepress challenges. These are just a few of the many quality products from XANTE CORPORATION that keep you on the cutting-edge of the color proofing, printing and prepress industry.
