Here’s what’s happening and how Kodak can help you keep up and get ahead:
TREND #5: Ready for Process Free
Process free plates are quickly becoming the plate of choice for printers that want to be competitive, so CTP devices that are “process free ready,” are a good investment, even for printers that don’t think process free plates are a good fit for their business at this time.
KODAK Platesetters are designed to work seamlessly with process free plates, such as the new SONORA X Plate. Kodak has invested in development of the SQUARESPOT Imaging Heads to make them more “negative-plate friendly,” unlike other manufacturers. SQUARESPOT Technology enables superior tonal stability so printers can achieve the highest screening qualification with process free plates.
