Offset prepress processes: Automation's claim to fame in the print industry

April 22, 2024

Offset prepress

For cutting-edge offset technology, look no further than Kodak: home of the industry's fastest 8-up CTP system.

We designed the MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter with T-Speed Plus to offer unparalleled speed while revolutionizing your offset workflow.

What's new with T-Speed Plus?

  • Exceptional speed. Now 40% faster than previous generations, printers can expect a throughput of up to 84 plates per hour (equivalent to one plate every 42.9 seconds).
  • Enhanced automation. Streamline prepress with automatic plate loading/unloading and a Multi-Pallet Loader capable of holding up to 3,200 plates.
  • Increased mobility. Monitor and control from anywhere with the Mobile Control App.

It is essential for printers to focus on maximizing productivity wherever possible to stay profitable in the face of decreasing run lengths, tight margins, and a competitive environment that demands shop efficiency be driven by next-gen equipment.

By adopting the latest-generation CTP technology, printers can not only improve their operational efficiency and profitability but also enhance customer satisfaction by consistently meeting deadlines and fulfilling a wider range of print requests.
