The Kodak THERMOFLEX Mid Hybrid platesetter combines digital flexo and offset platemaking capabilities to provide outstanding flexibility for high-quality printing of various photosensitive media.
The THERMOFLEX Mid Hybrid platesetter uses a variety of printing techniques, or a combination of printing techniques to expand the range of services, to provide printers with one-piece solutions. Kodak's hybrid CTP platesetter offers two formats: THERMOFLEX Narrow Hybrid and THERMOFLEX Mid Hybrid, which Kodak is currently demonstrating at IPEX.
Bob Dalton, Kodak's THERMOFLEX product manager, said: â€œMore and more printers are merging flexo and offset printing to expand their services. The THERMOFLEX Mid Hybrid platesetter offers printers a way to invest With a maximized yield, they can image offset, flexo and letterpress plates and film on the same device.â€
The THERMOFLEX Mid Hybrid platesetter is an industry-leading technology, such as HYPERFLEX resolution enhancement software for flexo printing, which provides efficient reprinting effects.
The THERMOFLEX platesetter structure facilitates the loading and unloading of plates, thus minimizing plate damage. Users can print flexographic plates up to 1106 x 1200 mm (40 x 47.24 in.) and offset plates up to 1000 x 1200 mm (30 x 47.24 in.).
The THERMOFLEX Narrow Hybrid platesetter made its debut at Labelexpo Europe in September 2005. THERMOFLEX is for those narrow-web printers and commercial shops that want all types of photopolymer layers to achieve high-quality printing. The Narrow Hybrid platesetter is definitely the ideal choice. The THERMOFLEX Narrow Hybrid Platesetter can be used to configure multiple plates. It can easily load plates of the following sizes: flexo up to 762 x 762 mm (30 x 30 in.) and offset 762 x 744 mm (30 x 29) In.), and has the option of imaging multiple plates at the same time. This product has a small footprint, easy to use TIFF Front End software, and universal workflow connectivity suitable for any size operation.
Kodak will demonstrate a fully integrated solution that optimizes its output at booth 5, booth D70, at the IPEX show. Visitors to Kodak's booth will then see the THERMOFLEX Mid-Hybrid platesetter and the KODAK APPROVAL NX Digital Proofing System working with the KODAK PRINERGY POWERPACK workflow system.
