Go Green with Process-free Plates

The acquisition of our latest machine - the Kodak-Creo Magnus Quantum platesetter, has allowed us to offer an exciting new service. Because of it’s high imaging speed and powerful laser optics we are able to expose onto process-free plates, with no loss in imaging speed or quality. These plates need no chemistry in order to develop them as the exposed substrate simply washes off with water, and they are then gummed in the usual way.

We are very pleased to be able to offer these plates commercially, and hope that many of our customers will opt for using them, particularly at a time when we should all be looking to do as much as we can to protect our environment.

To you, the end user, there will be no discernable difference, as the plates will be supplied to you washed and gummed - ready to go on press. They are of the same high quality metal as our conventional ctp plates, and will offer the same run
length and performance. They can be exposed at the same
resolution and half-tone screen, or with staccato screening.
In fact, the only real difference is the little warm glow you might
feel inside at having done your bit for the environment!
