Sustainable Platemaking that Pays

KODAK ACHIEVE Platesetters bring cost savings on several fronts. The automation features speed up platemaking and reduce errors from manual handling, saving time, labor, and costly remakes. And their energy-efficient thermal technology requires only 400 watts while imaging—up to 93% less power than some competitor CTPs—for lower resource usage and environmental impact, especially when paired with KODAK SONORA XTRA Process Free Plates.
