KODAK SONORA X Plates provide savings both for your business and for the environment. Kodak's field-proven process free plate technology lets you eliminate the plate processing step - along with all the water, energy, chemistry, and processing variability - without sacrificing the performance that you require from a plate. In prepress, you can easily see the savings by not having a processor and chemistry. In the pressroom, you'll see even bigger savings by removing the variability and plate defects caused by processing.
Show your customers and community that you're an environmental leader by using SONORA Process Free Plates.
- No more processing chemistry, along with disposal, handling, and shipping.
- No more water to rinse the plate in the processor, mix concentrated chemistry, or clean the processing equipment.
- No more energy to run your plate processor.
- No more waste in the pressroom from variability or plate defects caused by processing. Faster makereadies and greater dot stability also reduce waste on press.
SONORA X Plates can match the performance of most unbaked wet processed plates:
- Long run lengths of up to 400,000 impressions with heatset or coldset web presses and 200,000 impressions with sheetfed presses
- UV-ink application run lengths of up to 75,000 impressions
- Fast imaging speeds that provide maximum productivity on most platesetters
- Resolutions of up to 450 lpi and FM20, depending on the capability of your imaging device
Removing the processor means you can free up floor space, streamline plate making, eliminate processor maintenance, and end the risk of handling chemicals.
