A Laser Plate Maker for Everyone

Inkcups Now has a laser to fit everyone's needs. Whether your company is large or small, ICN has the laser solution. Cobalt laser plate makers have advanced software, small spot size and quality power control.



The Cobalt 2000 & Cobalt 3000 are designed only to make pad printing plates. Focused on quality, simplicity and affordability, the Cobalt 2000 & 3000 are perfect for small to medium-size print shops. The Cobalt 1000 & Cobalt 3000 laser plate makers are a revolutionary "two-in-one" solution: a capable industrial laser etcher and an advanced laser plate maker.

Inkcups Now engineers were the first to recognize the advantages of Laser Plate Making and launch specialized laser plate material and laser platemaker systems. ICN is proud to have pioneered the field and maintained a leading position in it.
