    The plate gets torn out of the machine after about 2K prints.

    Normal. Lightly apply spray mount to the back of the plate before mounting or use the straight edge clamp if the machine has one.

    If this is a pinbar clamp you can also use a thin strip of reinforced tape at the top of plate before you punch the plate. Excessive form roller pressure and impression can add troubles too.
