Presstek introduces GemPlate, a new chemistry-free thermal plate that develops on press. GemPlate is an effective solution for lowering platemaking costs and reducing time to press. Streamline your plate production, eliminate chemistry reliance, reduce your overall costs and produce high resolution images with Presstek's GemPlate. No compromises!
Using Gemplate is simple. The plate can be imaged on a industry standard 830 nm platesetter. Once imaged, mount on press and print! The press fountain solution and ink remove the plate’s unexposed areas, “developing” a polymerized, hardened, exposed ink-receptive image area. GemPlate significantly improves platemaking efficiency, removing processing variables so you can easily achieve fast turnaround, high quality, profitable printing. In addition to a streamlined workflow, GemPlate results in high resolution and sharp, repeatable, consistent color images.
