Presstek to Expand Portfolio with UV and Aqueous Coating Options
Presstek Aurora Pro Chemistry-Free Plates are true chemistry-free open platform daylight-safe metal plates that can be imaged on a range of thermal platesetters, including Presstek's Compass, Dimension Pro and models distributed by Screen and Kodak (Creo). Aurora Pro plates are rated up to 25,000 impressions and have strong resistance to UV inks and solvents.
Presstek Anthem Pro Plates combine with Presstek Compass and Dimension Pro platesetters to deliver a chemistry-free platemaking solution. The plates are 100% daylight safe and do not require any gumming, baking or chemical processing. Only a simple water wash is required prior to mounting on press. Anthem Pro plates deliver excellent on-press performance, have strong resistance to UV inks and solvents, and support run lengths up to 100,000 impressions.
