Laser Plate Makers
RapidFire Cliché Maker
Digital to Plate – A laser powered plate making system produces direct-to-plate digital clarity without chemicals or film. The Rapid Fire uses laser etching, a technique where the laser beam traverses left and right, burning away horizontal lines of material as it moves down the material vertically. This is an ideal solution for shops that need many different plates. We supply three different polymer plates for use with the Rapid Fire with estimated lifespan of 10,000 to 100,000 impressions (depending on usage).
