Plate processor is a machine that develops printing plates. The
emulsion on a printing plate is water-soluble before it's exposed.
When it's exposed, whether to ultraviolet light, purple light or
heat (depending on the kind of plate you're using), the exposed
areas become insoluble. You put the exposed plate in the entry.
There is first a spray bar--a tube with lots of holes in it--that
applies a soap & water solution to the plate. Next, a rotating
brush with soft bristles removes the unexposed parts of the
emulsion. Following that are a series of spray bars that wash the
plate with water. Next comes a squeegee and warm air to dry the
plate. A final spray bar applies gum arabic to the plate to
preserve it, and a final blast of warm air dries the gum. When the
plate emerges from the machine, it's processed, gummed, dried and
ready to print with.
PROCEMAC PT series plate processor is suitable for thermal CTP
plates. Suitable for large volume plate processing.
