Shearing plates, extending resources.

Burgess Printing Plate Shears Burgess custom designs and manufactures a versatile line of in-line or off-line plate trimmers and high end plate shears to handle all CTP plate making applications. Plate trimmers and shears use a precision ground and polished, tooled-steel cutting blade combined with a heavy-duty welded steel frame to insure exacting tolerances. Dual push-button activation for safety and auto-pneumatic vacuum hold down are standard. Addition of a Tri-point Robotic Electronic Pin Register or “B-Opts” Optical/Tri-Point Dual Register System makes it a perfect fit for CTP applications. Optional press register and conventional stripping punch assemblies can be added if desired.
