ICN Laser Plates for CO2 and YAG Lasers

Inkcups Now pioneered computer-to-plate technology in the pad printing industry. Our engineers have developed the largest selection of laser engravable plates on the market. The plates were specifically designed to accommodate varying applications and machine types; we hold patents on the various plate materials.

ICN Laser Plate Advantages

The ICN laser engravable plates is a revolutionary product that brings simplicity and repeatability to the making of pad printing plates:
  • ICN Laser Plates are designed to be etched with CO2 or YAG lasers. They can be used on our Cobalt laser systems or nearly any industry standard laser engravers, provided these machines have updated software, small spot size and quality power control.

  • Unlike traditional plate-making with photosensitive plates, laser plate-making is a computer-to-plate process, which does not involve film positives or chemicals. Laser Plates enable first generation etching with exceptional depth and halftone control. Laser engravable plates can be etched within just a few minutes.
If you don’t have a laser system or are looking to upgrade it, check out Inkcups Now line of Cobalt laser engravers and plate-makers.

ICN Line of Laser Engravable Plates:

AccuLaze Plates For CO2 & YAG Lasers


AccuLaze laserable plates The AccuLaze laser engravable plate material can be etched by either CO2 or YAG laser engraver. Having a fixed depth of .00085" (20 microns), the AccuLaze material makes it easy to find the correct settings on any capable laser system. AccuLaze is perfect for fine lines, small graphics and process images.

The AccuLaze Plates have a steel center and are double-sided so they can accommodate up to four images. These laser plates ship with protective peel sheet on both sides. Each side will withstand approximately 15,000 impressions.

To etch this material, you need the Cobalt 300 laser plate-maker or the Cobalt 1000 laser plate-maker or another laser engraver with the power not less than 10Watt and no more than 30Watt.


New! Premium Laser Gold Plates For CO2 Lasers

Gold laser plates To make the best of the Gold plates, you need a laser system with the power of at least 10W. The Laser Gold plate material for CO2 laser engravers is gold in color and 0.029 inch thick. It has a glossy finish, which facilitates clean doctoring.

The Gold plate material provides complete depth and halftone control with exceptional reproducibility of dot pattern for a most wide variety of graphics, with either bold or fine lines. To etch this material, you need the Cobalt 300 laser plate-maker or another laser engraver with the power not less than 10Watt and no more than 30Watt.

Laser Gold plates can have a life of up to 40 000 impressions.


New! Premium Laser Orange Plates For CO2 Lasers

Orange laser plates The Laser Orange plate material for CO2 laser engravers is orange in color and 0.019 inch thick. It is a relatively hard material, which makes it perfect for fine lines and details. It also accepts any other type of graphic.

Laser Orange is especially advantageous if one is running different printing machines with various types of cups, rings or doctor blades: the plates' matte finish gives some latitude for doctoring.

To etch this material, you need the Cobalt 300 laser plate-maker or another laser engraver with the power not less than 10Watt and no more than 30Watt.

Laser Orange plates have a life of approximately 30 000 impressions.


New!Premium Laser Red Plates For CO2 Lasers

Gold laser plates The Laser Red plate material for CO2 laser engravers is red in color and 0.020 inch thick. This material accepts any type of graphic. It is one of the hardest of the CO2 plate materials by Inkcups Now, making it very durable and excellent for the use with both ceramic and steel rings.

To etch this material, you need the Cobalt 300 laser plate-maker or another laser engraver with the power not less than 10Watt and no more than 30Watt.

The life of Laser Red is approximately 100 000 impressions.








Cobalt plates - for YAG laser

The Cobalt is our most diverse plate material. All types of Cobalt plates are designed to accommodate a broad range of graphics, from bold images to fine lines. Cobalt's proprietary coating is held to extremely tight tolerance for guaranteed depth control, which enables consistent laser settings from batch to batch. The surface finish of the Cobalt plates is high gloss for excellent plate clearing; dot pattern control is easily achieved for exceptional print quality.

To etch the Cobalt plate material, you need the Cobalt 1000 laser plate-maker or another laser engraver with the power not less than 10 and no more than 30Watt.

STANDARD Cobalt Laser Plates For YAG Lasers

Cobalt laser plates The Standard Cobalt plate material works very well for any type of graphics. The thickness of this material is ideal for the use with magnetic ink cups. The plates are designed to flex into the ink cup creating a perfect seal on the inner edge of the ceramic ring.

The Standard Cobalt plates are 0.012" thick and can be etched on both sides for up to four images per plate. The life of a plate is approximately 15,000-20,000 impressions.







Cobalt ULTRA Laser Plates For YAG Lasers

Cobalt laser plates The new Cobalt Ultra plate material is thicker than Standard Cobalt, resulting in improved resistance to damage and longer life. Increased thickness also leads to increased stability and makes these plates ideal for large bold images as well as for the use with non-magnetic ink cups and ink cups with steel rings.

These double-sided plates are 0.016" thick and have a life of approximately 15,000-20,000 impressions.









Cobalt Steel Back Laser Plates For YAG Lasers

Cobalt steel back laser plates One of ICN's most recent innovations is the Cobalt Steel Back plate material. Having the same universal applicability as the whole Cobalt family of plates, it is the thickest and the most durable of them. It is perfect for extended production runs. As an additional benefit, these plates work great with both magnetic and non-magnetic ink cups as they combine the stability of the Cobalt Ultra and steel backing.

This unique laser plate material is 0.030" thick. It is able to withstand approximately 30,000 impressions
