:Azura TS

Agfa Graphics' :Azura TS is a thermal, negative working plate for low/medium volume commercial printing where simplicity, robustness and reliability are important. It provides the high quality imaging you’d expect from a thermal system, without chemical processing. Elimination of chemistry removes all process variables and simplifies platemaking, giving you clear, consistent results. :Azura TS users benefit from one of the simplest, most reliable and predictable CtP technologies ever created.

Key benefits

  • Elimination of process variables provides reliable, consistent results.
  • ThermoFuse physical imaging technology guarantees simplicity and convenience under a wide range of conditions.
  • Robust, scratch resistant plates provide easy handling.
  • Daylight processing adds convenience in any workflow.
  • No hazardous chemicals’ means a safer work environment for everyone.
  • Reduces waste and disposal costs associated with chemicals.
  • Non-ablative plate requires no cumbersome vacuum extraction equipment.
  • Printing directly from the aluminum substrate provides wide printing latitude.

Chemistry-free Thermal CtP Plate - A Breakthrough in CtP

:Azura TS uses ThermoFuse technology to physically bond images to the plate without any chemical processing. The result is highly stable and predictable thermal imaging, without any compromises on press. This built-in simplicity gives :Azura TS users an inherently wide working-latitude with fewer variables and higher reliability than other forms of CtP. :Azura TS is the recommended technology for printers who require the ultimate in predictable, stress-free, CtP technology. Because it requires no chemical processing, it reduces waste and eliminates prepress steps, helping you create a more streamlined workflow.

User Profile

:Azura TS is an excellent option for low/medium throughput thermal CtP users. It is available in sizes for 2-up, 4-up and 8-up printing applications.
:Azura TS can hold up to 2-98 % screen tints at 200 LPI, and delivers runs of up to 100K, depending on press conditions.
