EVO Systems



The EVO 3 IPI system is a Fully Automated Easy to Plate™ system.

It features an incremental washout unit (Plate Processor) with external punch, an automatic Dryer and Light-Finisher with Stacker.

It is designed to washout, dry, post-expose and light-finish solvent-washable, polyester-backed, analogue and digital plates up to a size of 90 x 120 cm (36x48 inch) and thickness up to 7 mm (0.276 inches).

The standard version is equipped with a stress-accumulation early-warning-system and with tools to enable remote-monitoring and remote-diagnostics.
One of the most important feature of the Easy to Plate™ is the modularity concept, in other words, each unit is an independent piece of equipment buyable separately with the possibility of being upgrated and attached to one other to compose an all-in-one automatic unit.
This gives our customer 2 choices:
  1. buy the whole automatic line at once, or
  2. ammortize the investment and buy the different units over a longer time frame.

High efficiency
Less plates manipulation and manpower intervention for a higher quality: this also means a cost and time saving product. The risk of damaging a plate due to human intervention is virtually eliminated; as well as the inconvenience of direct contact with the solvent. In addition, the Easy to Plate™ has also a positive impact on the working environment: no more solvent smell in the workshops neither solvent leaks around due to dirty plates manipulation.

Full plate control
Another great advantage of the Easy to Plate™ system is represented by the set of internal cameras positioned to monitor the plate status after the washout section, as well as all the most sentitive mechanical transfer of the plate from one module to another. All the images captured by the cameras are displayed on the wide screen fixed to the dryer module and can also be seen and studied in remote by Vianord engineers. Each Easy to Plate™ is in fact equipped with a remote monitoring system, studied to assist the customer and follow up the unit status after installation. In addition to all this, a manual camera is also provided on every Easy to Plate™.
This allows the technician in loco to show in remote specific images to Vianord support team.

The Easy to Plate™ project encloses all the technological innovations in order to integrate all the steps of the photopolymer plates manufacturing in a all-in-one fully automatic line.

General Features

General Features

This fully automatic, PLC controlled, Easy to Plate System is specifically designed for high quality digital and conventional photopolymer plates for flexible packaging and flexo printing applications.



This System is suitable for analogue and digital, polyester backed, solvent-washable photopolymer Flexo plate.

It is designed to work in a standard “drum-to-drum” configuration where fresh solvent is supplied to the washout unit from a drum and the saturated dirty solvent is pumped from the unit to a recovery drum. It has been tested with conventional alternative solvents, with flashpoint above 62°C (144°F). The system's installation kit includes two Ø 16 mm - 5 mt solvent hoses with fittings, one level switch for the fresh solvent drum and another for the used solvent drum. Please note that if you intend to use  this system with permanently installed tanks, special level switches may be required.



PLC driven system designed to process solvent-washable, polyester-backed, analogue and digital plates up to a size of 90 x 120 cm (36x48 inch) and thickness up to 7 mm (0.276 inches).

Production Data Recording

This Vianord systems offer the opportunity to benefit from extensive production data collected directly from the platemaking system. Your production data can easily be turned into actionable information. You will be able to build reports customized for your own production needs to calculate and display operations data throughout your organization. Platemaking operations that are operated and maintained based on actionable information are more reliable and more profitable.

Stress-Accumulation Early-Warning

The system provides Early Alerts when the time to replace an over-stressed part, causing too much risk, has come. This innovative function allows users to intentionally replace parts that are tired, aged, and degraded just before they fail. More than one hundred parts, critical to the uptime of the system, have been identified and data relative to their maximum-lifetime-expectations stored in the software.

Remote Diagnostics

Remote-Monitoring and Remote-Diagnostics; The concept of automation symbolises high quality and productivity, so ensuring you experience minimal downtime, for Vianord is essential. For that reason, this Easy to Plate system is fitted with an Industrial VPN Gateway - EWON COSY 131 - designed to offer Vianord Certified Engineers remote access, across the Internet. This innovative system will help you keep uptime high, maintenance costs low, and extend the system’s useful life.

Compressed Air Supply

To perform to the best of its possibilities, the system requires a continuous and stable supply of compressed air at a pressure of at least 7 bar (101.5 psi) and not more than 10 bar (145 psi), with pressure dew point 3°C and max. residual intake oil content of < 0.01 mg/m3. Consider also an average consumption of 70 l/hr. The system installation kit includes a 5-meter - Ø 6mm air connecting pipe for push-in fitting.



The unit is equipped with a well-designed exhaust system that collect and conveys vapours and fumes from the different sections the machine and discharge them as quickly and silently as possible. The blower in the systems has sufficient power to vent the entire equipment when the tube supplied is connected directly to a vent hoods in the external wall or on the roof.
