With more than 1,500 customers already embracing the process free revolution started by KODAK THERMAL DIRECT Non Process Plates, the new KODAK SONORA XP Process Free Plate is the next step in the evolution of process free thermal technology. The SONORA XP Process Free Plate will make its North American debut at GRAPH EXPO 2012 in the Kodak booth (1221).
Offering high-quality thermal imaging and the complete elimination of plate processing, SONORA XP Plates increase productivity, simplify operations, and remove costs by reducing the number of steps required for platemaking. The plates require none of the chemistry, water, or energy associated with processing, which is good for the environment, but even better for the bottom line.
Designed for commercial printers of all sizes as well as large web publication printers and offset packaging printers, SONORA XP Plates use a write-the-image, non-ablative technology that offers enhancements in both imaging speed, resolution capability and latent image contrast. These plates provide customers the same resolution, reliability, accuracy, and repeatability and run length capability as traditionally processed thermal plates, while improving stability and reducing environmental impact.
