The :Anapurna M3200 RTR and Avalon B8-24S thermal platesetter with Azura plates were demonstrated at Agfa Graphics’ Open House Event, held on 12 March at the company’s offices in Kempton Park. The products generated great interest from visitors to the event.
The :Anapurna M3200 RTR is a 3.2 metre (126 inch-wide) UV-curable roll-to-roll printer that efficiently produces the widest range of roll applications for indoor and outdoor use. The system delivers unprecedented productivity and quality at an investment level previously unavailable in the market. It features exceptional media handling and droplet control and is dual roll capable to maximise efficiency. It is the ideal solution for those looking to produce high quality signage in six colours with a maximum resolution of 1440 dpi. Printing on a variety of flexible and lower cost substrates, while using less ink and energy for a low total cost of ownership, the :Anapurna M3200 RTR proves to be the eco-friendly printing solution that helps to increase your profit potential.
The Avalon B8-24 is a breakthrough range of manual-loading thermal platesetter systems designed for new computer-to-plate users. It is an affordable solution for high-quality CtP imaging, delivering more jobs in less time; is based on the reliable Avalon N architecture and proven fibre-coupled laser technology; makes it very easy to control plate production and is very stable on press in combination with chemistry-free printing plates. It delivers consistent high-quality imaging results in fewer remakes, saving time and money and increases print buyer satisfaction. The Avalon B8-24 S delivers up to 23pph, size 8-up and combines manual plate loading with pre-staging.
The convenience of working with Agfa Graphics’ Azura chemistry-free plate is an additional benefit. Azura is a thermal, negative-working plate for low/medium/high-volume commercial printing where simplicity, robustness and reliability are important. It provides the high-quality imaging you would expect from a thermal system, without chemical processing.
