Adamas COU

Clean-out units for Adamas plates

The Adamas COU series consists of dedicated, advanced and compact clean-out units that swiftly finish Adamas plates and take ecology to the next level.

Adamas clean-out units rely on a two-gum concept – a dedicated clean-out solution and a protective finisher gum, with a bath life of 16.000 m² and no water requirements. A new brush design ensures efficient clean-out and requires only small quantities of liquids (35ml/m²) to swiftly clean plates. As a result, the COU produces up to 80% less waste than other systems on the market.

Adamas clean-out units are available in three sizes: Adamas COU85, Adamas COU125 and Adamas COU150. They can be used stand-alone or connected online with the platesetter. The latest software version has an algorithm that enables maximal energy and waste efficiency. So once the Adamas clean-out unit is installed, you’re good to go: the unit is designed to handle up to 60,000 m² of plates a year!

Small ecological footprint

These units are energy-efficient, chemistry-free and no water is required to clean the plate.

Reduced waste

The long bath life, low replenishment rates and total elimination of rinse water result in a waste reduction of up to 80% compared to conventional thermal systems

Since we switched to Adamas, we can handle longer print runs, Furthermore, the plate’s excellent image contrast enables an easy visual check to avoid any mistakes. Scratch resistance is great, too.

The Adamas gum bath life is 85,000 to 90,000 square feet before a changeover. And with our volume, we’re cleaning less frequently, which is a huge benefit, and the processor is easier to clean. Now I can have one person cleaning the machine instead of two. He can clean the processors efficiently and quickly, saving us time and money.
