Kodak Brings Benefits Of SONORA XP And SONORA NEWS Process Free Plates To The Americas

Kodak sets a new standard in digital plate innovation today in the Americas with the introduction of KODAK SONORA XP Process Free Plates for commercial, publishing and packaging printers and KODAK SONORA NEWS Process Free Plates for newspaper printers at Graph Expo 2012.

With SONORA XP and SONORA NEWS Process Free Plates, the entire plate processing environment – chemistry, water, processor, energy and waste related to the processing step – is completely eliminated. That means that SONORA XP and SONORA NEWS Plates can go immediately to press, where a state-of-the-art coating and the physical properties of the lithographic press prepare the plate for print during normal start-up procedures.

SONORA XP Plates offer high-quality thermal imaging and because they are process free, they offer streamlined and simplified platemaking, reduced operational costs and labor, and greater overall prepress efficiency than processed plates. In addition to providing the same reliability and accuracy expected of traditionally processed thermal plates, SONORA XP Plates go a step further to improve the image stability and consistency of printed materials by eliminating processing variability. SONORA XP Plates further extend and enhance the benefits of process-free plates with specific advantages such as better run lengths and a wider variety of sizes and gauges – which expands the applications range over other plates in similar categories.

Miami Valley Publishing of Fairborn, Ohio, has been using SONORA XP Plates for more than two years and has committed to a fully process-free workflow – removing all processors and chemistry from the facility. “After a period of testing, we determined that the performance and benefits were exactly right for our business,” noted Dan Stahl, Miami Valley Publishing’s owner. “We’ve been able to eliminate all processing and the maintenance and variability that go along with that, while also enjoying faster plate production. Our customers have been very happy with the results.” Miami Valley Publishing primarily produces free-standing inserts in runs from thousands to millions.
