At Printpack 2015, Kodak India showcased its acclaimed Sonora XP process-free plates a new class of thermal plates that deliver reliability, quality and productivity of mainstream processed plates without any processing and chemistry. The Sonora XP process-free plates allow printers to be competitive, save money and reduce environmental impact. Sonora plates work with existing platesetters (including automation) and do not need special inks, set-ups on press or fountain solutions. Sonora plates offer the cost and waste reduction benefits of process-free plates in addition to delivering quality, productivity, and print capabilities of mainstream processed plates. They meet the demands of commercial sheetfed print production delivering strong print performance on commercial heatset and coldset web presses, offset packaging applications and short-run UV. Moreover, they are available in 0.40 mm gauge and VLF size formats, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
