Agfa Graphics brings next generation thermal plate system to Drupa 2016
At drupa, Agfa Graphics underlines its commitment to sustainable innovation that focuses on ecology, economy, and extra convenience, coined ECO³ aiming at the development of cleaner and cost-effective solutions that are easier to operate and maintain, both for chemistry-free and for conventional plate systems.
Energy Elite Eco
Thanks to its innovative dual-layer coating technology, Energy Elite Eco is a remarkably robust printing plate that eliminates the need for any pre- or post-baking. Its technology also features high sensitivity for future-proof compatibility with all high-speed thermal platesetters. The plate offers a run length of up to 600,000 prints (or up to 150,000 copies using UV ink) for a variety of applications and print conditions. Even in harsh environments, it affords photorealistic imaging quality, supporting up to 340lpi Sublima and FM10 screening technologies. Energy Elite Eco provides printers with consistent results at 1-99% dot resolution, without dot loss.
The new Agfa Graphics Arkana smart processor features a small developer tank, drastically lowering the replenishment rates and considerably reducing the use of chemicals. In addition by deploying Agfa Graphics’ patented gum cascade system, Arkana no longer requires water for plate rinsing. Instead, the cascaded gum has a dual function, cleaning the plate and protecting the plate with a finishing layer.
The optimal combination
The Energy Elite Eco plate is compatible with all standard processing equipment, yet performs optimally in combination with the advanced Arkana smart processor.
At the Agfa booth (hall 8) at Drupa 2016 the new thermal plate solution Arkana with Energy Elite Eco is on display from today.
