KODAK MAGNUS VLF Platesetter

Multiple automation options

Faster plate loading, reduced manual handling and long - unattended operation:

  • ContinuousLoad (standard): While one plate is being imaged, the second plate is placed in standby and loads automatically after the plate on the drum unloads to an online processor.
  • Multi-Cassette Unit (MCU): Holds up to 300 plates in four cassettes, each with up to 75 plates with slip sheets. The required cassette is automatically selected according to the job definition. Empty cassettes can be reloaded while the platesetter is running.
  • Automatic Pallet Loader (APL): Loads plates directly from shipping pallets into the Magnus VLF Platesetter. Capable of holding between one and six pallets of up to 600 plates each for very high capacity and no operator handling of plates.

Latest Features

Integrated punch enhances automation

The MAGNUS VLF Platesetter features a fully integrated punch option with accurate three-point registration, helping eliminate costly errors.

Temperature compensation system enhances accuracy

To improve fit and register on press, a unique temperature compensation system adjusts for changes in ambient temperature and corrects for plate expansion and contraction. This system also reduces the number of wasted plates.

 
 

Accurate and stable imaging

KODAK SQUAREspot Imaging Technology, standard on KODAK Platesetters, enables accurate and consistent imaging from plate to plate and machine to machine, resulting in fewer remakes and less time adjusting for variables.
