New VLF systems have been developed by Screen to complement a new larger format presses on the market (such as the KBA 205, the MAN Roland 900 XXL and Lithoman IV). Their format and high productivity make them ideal for sheet-fed and web offset presses within commercial, magazine, book and packaging companies.
The ability to image two B1 plates simultaneously on these large-format devices effectively makes them the fastest B1 platesetters in the world and ideal to support multi-colour perfecting presses. A full set of B1 punched plates can be produced for a 12-unit press in just 15 minutes.
With large format plates, inline punching is particularly important for press accuracy and Screen is unique in offering this feature as a standard on its VLF machines. Inline punching has been proven to save hundreds of hours a year on press.
