Are Process Free Plates Right for your Business?
If you looked at process free plates before and decided that they didn't meet all your needs, you should take another look. Kodak plate engineers have worked magic with the technology behind process free, and the capabilities of SONORA Process Free Plates are now very close to those of traditional processed plates. The benefits of process free plates are real, and they're significant. Eliminating processing equipment, processing chemistry and processing steps. Water and energy savings. Time savings. Cost savings. Greater stability on plates sent to the pressroom. With SONORA Plates, most printers can get all these benefits without sacrificing the productivity, print quality and efficiencies of their current processed plate. For instance, SONORA Plates deliver: Fast imaging capabilities that maximize throughput on all but the fastest CTP systems (150 mJ/cm2 on KODAK SQUARESPOT Platesetters) Mainstream print quality Strong run length
Yes. This is Flexo! This is not your everyday shopping bag…
Those of us that have been in the print industry for many years remember the days when the beautiful gravure-printed National Geographic magazine was held up as the pinnacle of print quality, the goal that every offset printer dreamed of achieving. Decades on it would seem that flexo printing on film has finally achieved 'National Geographic' status. Mouthwatering examples of wide web flexo printing, in the form of self-promotional shopping bags, filled the end caps of the Street Box in the Kodak Quarter at drupa - the result of the 'Yes.

It's a truth that the things that we love the most about flexo printing can also provide significant challenges for flexo prepress and print providers. The wide variety of substrates and ink types that are used in flexo printing make flexography one of the most versatile of all the print processes used in package production, but can also provide a potential headache for the plate maker, driving a need to stock multiple plate types for multiple applications. This plate for high quality UV linework, that plate for absorbent paper substrates, yet another plate for printing white ink on film with high volume anilox rolls, and maybe yet another plate for everything in between. Multiple plate types can increase inventory, decrease productivity and introduce opportunities for error. Recent announcements from multiple flexo plate suppliers that promise entire new ranges of plates with engineered plate surfaces for particular applications have the potential to further exacerbate the problem
