United States : Kodak Introduces High-performance, Sustainable Plate Solutions at GRAPH EXPO 2015.

Kodak is maximizing plate performance and improving the sustainability of its customers operations with the announcement of KODAK ELECTRA MAX Thermal Plates and introduction of the KODAK TRENDSETTER Q2400/Q3600 Platesetter. Both solutions will be on display at GRAPH EXPO 2015 at the Kodak booth #823.

Kodak s new ELECTRA MAX Plate offers maximum capabilities for printers, such as long unbaked run lengths, strong chemical resistance, and 10-micron FM and 450 lpi AM resolution capabilities. These versatile thermal plates are suitable for use in a diverse range of printing environments including offset packaging, web publication, commercial sheetfed, and demanding UV or H-UV applications. Dubbed the No Compromise plate, the ELECTRA MAX Plate delivers low developer consumption and long run lengths with no preheat requirements, ideal for customers looking to boost performance while reducing their environmental impact.

Kodak is also enhancing the capabilities of its platesetter portfolio with the TRENDSETTER Q2400/Q3600 Platesetter. This solution features the award winning KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology, delivering dependable accuracy regardless of plate emulsion sensitivity, processor variation and laser power. This increased efficiency enables customers to reduce imaging power consumption up to 27 percent while reducing costs due to fewer remakes and less time adjusting for variables.

With the new TRENDSETTER Q2400/Q3600 Platesetter, Kodak is underscoring its commitment to innovation in computer-to-plate technology. Customers can now increase throughput with large format plates that can image from 394mm x 394mm up to 1600mm x 2083mm. The manual device is versatile enough to image a large range of plate sizes from two pages to some of the largest offset plate sizes available. It easily handles a variety of applications such as packaging, directories and other large format applications. It can also be used as a back-up machine to handle overflow of automated platesetters. The versatility allows customers to differentiate and grow their businesses through high-resolution printing.

Compatibility with ELECTRA MAX Plates and KODAK SONORA XP Process Free Plates further extends sustainability strategies, as both plates allow customers to remove all or a portion of the chemistry, water, energy, waste and VOCs from plate making. Kodak is the only supplier that owns the technology for the platesetter, plates, and workflow, providing its customers with an integrated and unified solution.
