Sustainable Platemaking that Pays

TRENDSETTER 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. Plus they require only 770 watts while imaging—up to 92% less power than some competitor CTPs—for lower resource usage and environmental impact, especially when paired with KODAK SONORA XTRA Process Free Plates.


Consistency and Quality You Can Count On 

Like all top-of-the-line Kodak CTP units, the TRENDSETTER Q400/Q800 Platesetter uses our award-winning KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology to deliver precise, consistently imaged plates even across varying conditions. That stability means fewer prepress errors and remakes, so your entire workflow runs smoother.
