26-1KS™ Metal-Halide Platemaker
The 26-1KS™ is designed to ensure fast, consistent lithographic exposures and superior image reproduction on printing plates, color proofing materials, daylight films, and many other applications that require UV exposure with absolute contact. It combines a 1K instant-start multi-spectrum metal-halide lithographic exposure lamp with a vacuum frame and molded one-piece blanket. The 26-1KS is a complete, easy-to-use lithographic exposure system with an energy-efficient power supply that provides more power and light than competing models with higher wattages.
The instant-start power supply saves energy by eliminating warmup and idling times, and is capable of handling material up to 58 x 69 cm (23” x 27”). Standard features include an LED display, an eight-channel light integrator for exceptional control over litho exposures, an integrated vacuum system, and a heavy-duty all-steel cabinet. Options include floor stand, curtain assembly, and heavy-duty maintenance-free vacuum pump for rapid drawdown. The 26-1KS is built to specifications established by the European Committee for Standardization® (CE) and Underwriters Laboratories® (UL). It’s backed by a one-year limited warranty—excluding blanket, glass, and lithographic exposure lamps—and M&R’s unparalleled 24-hour access to service, support, and premium parts. It’s engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance in demanding, high-production environments.
