GLUNZ & JENSEN UPDATES THE WORLD’S MOST SOLD PLATE PROCESSOR PROGRAM
Raptor+ more benefits to the market at no extra cost
The Raptor was introduced to the market in 2002 as a simple but yet high quality plate processing platform. This compact medium segment processor took the market by storm, and since then thousands of the popular Raptors have been installed worldwide.
Now Glunz & Jensen has taken the step to create much more value for customers facing a more and more efficient-demanding print industry. The new Raptor+ program is modernized to completely match the demanding user needs of control and simplicity.
Raptor+ is ready to battle time consuming plate processing
“The powerful Raptor+ platform will continue to be the most popular and versatile processor for printers all over the world in both the commercial and the newspaper segment because of the simplicity, reliability and the ease of use. The open configuration also makes it possible to re-configure the processor with applications from most plate suppliers. This flexibility is now supported by a modern user interface with the innovative Glunz & Jensen GNUC ll Electronics technology.”
“We are proud to say that we have lifted the Raptor platform and made it ready to battle the future´s time consuming plate processing.” says Simon Jensen, Business Director at Glunz & Jensen.
Customers get so much more at no extra cost…
The Raptor+ is offered as a more complete solution, with even more standard features than the old Raptor. The standard configuration now also includes a typical application configuration, cooling unit, hand shower for easy cleaning, drain manifold and universal front panel. Raptor+ can be used for either offline with feed/delivery table or for online configuration with CtP interface and stacker.
What is GNUC ll Electronics?
In 2005 Glunz & Jensen implemented the state-of-the-art user interface GNUC II Electronics on all Glunz & Jensen high-end processors. The fully graphical touch screen panel was immediately embraced by customers because of the intuitive symbols, colors and point to select navigation interface.
Features like online user manuals, user defined translation of menus, remote diagnostics via Ethernet, backup/restore of product parameters and software became the normal standard for high-end customers with GNUC II processors.
These benefits are now also in the medium segment Raptor+ platform!
Available before Drupa!
The Raptor+ will be on display at Drupa 2012 - Hall 5, Stand C38, but it is available already now. Raptor+ is available in 2 variants: Thermal & Photopolymer, and two widths: 680 mm (26.8”) and 850 mm (33.5”).
Gecko+ now with even more value for printers looking to get started with CtP
The Gecko+ processor platform is the simple solution intended for customers who want to enjoy the processing stability delivered by Glunz & Jensen equipment, but who can do without the more advanced automation features and options which are available from the high-end processor models.
The Gecko+ processor reuses technology and principles from the high-end processors, but is offered with a more basic configuration which satisfies the requirements for simple, yet consistent and reliable processing.
Glunz & Jensen replaces the Gecko with Gecko+ to introduce a new appearance and easy daily operation by adding a new integrated control panel with status/error messages and function keys for easy program changes. The Gecko+ also includes the unique Glunz & Jensen Remote Enabling System, which allow for convenient remote service access to the processor via the internet.
Business Unit Director, Simon Jensen: “We are shipping Gecko+ processors all around the world – for the satisfaction of hundreds of printers. It is dependable, simple to use, easy to install, and due to the reuse of our trusted developing technology, it delivers the Glunz & Jensen processing quality. Through Gecko+ this is now made available and beneficial for all smaller printing offices and houses!”
The Gecko+ is available for conventional, thermal and violet photopolymer applications, in 85 cm and 125 cm width. The Gecko+ is built for stock in Europe and can be shipped with a days notice.
To be seen at Drupa, but available NOW!
The Gecko+ was introduced in early February 2012, and is now shipped to customers all over the world. We will bring Gecko+ to our stand at Drupa and let you experience the simplicity and convenience at first hand.
