The PlateWriter™ 3000 is a professional model with higher productivity, more formats and advanced conductive registration. Ideal for commercial printers using 200-1000 plates/month. Compatible with 2-up and 4-up press formats up to 650 x 935 mm.

FeaturesAffordability – Significantly smaller investment than the cost of current, laser-based plate imaging systems

Ease-of-use – Operates in daylight conditions; no pressroom changes are required to plate clamping or press chemistries

Reduces plate production costs – The cost per plate is less than the cost of conventional metal platemaking methods

Environmentally friendly – No disposal of processing chemicals into the waste stream eliminating disposal costs


Significantly smaller investment than the cost of current, laser-based plate imaging systems. Contact your dealer for a personal Return on Investment calculation.

Ease of use

Operates in daylight conditions and makes press-ready plates in minutes without additional equipment or chemicals.

Environmentally friendly

No use of processing chemicals or water, and therefore no chemical disposal costs. Also extremely energy efficient.


A wide variety of iPlate sizes and gauges are available and they can be used interchangably without adjusting any settings.

High quality output

FM or stochastic screening capable of emulating 175 lpi conventional screening.

Reduced plate production costs

The cost per plate is less than conventional metal platemaking methods, with a dramatic reduction in labor expenses and no need for film or chemicals.

The complete solution

Everything you need to start making plates is included - from the imaging engine and finishing unit with automated gumming station, to the Harlequin RIP with its own powerful hardware platform.
