Tacony Corp. Switches to Presstek’s Chemistry-Free Aurora Pro Digital Plates
Aurora Pro Chemistry-free Plates
Chemistry-free Aurora Pro plates are daylight-safe metal plates that can be imaged on a range of thermal platesetters including Presstek’s Compass and Dimension Pro as well as models distributed by Screen and Kodak (Creo). Aurora Pro plates are rated at up to 25,000 impressions and have strong resistance to UV inks and solvents .The plates can be imaged at a resolution of 1% to 99% dots at 200 lpi (80 l/cm) and as well as with stochastic (FM) screening.
Aurora Pro’s chemistry-free process requires only a simple water wash after plate imaging before mounting on press. There is no need to consume extra space, time, energy and cost with expensive developers and noxious chemicals. Presstek’s open platform chemistry-free plates eliminate workflow steps, while providing a more affordable total cost of platemaking ownership and enabling an environmentally sustainable operation that also contributes to a safer employee workplace.
