YOUR COSTS. YOUR CHOICE.
With the flexible TRENDSETTER NEWS Platesetter, you get to choose how much automation is right for your business. And it's now available with panorama and dual broadsheet plate rotation.
BE FLEXIBLE. BE PRODUCTIVE
The TRENDSETTER NEWS Platesetter offers five options for automation. Automation makes you more flexible and productive, as well as cutting platemaking time and reducing errors caused by people handling plates.
PROVEN THERMAL IMAGING TECHNOLOGY
Thermal platesetters are known for delivering incredible accuracy and stability. TRENDSETTER Platesetters take that even further: with KODAK's groundbreaking SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology you get stability, reliability and accuracy you didn't dream possible.
Thermal technology also enables true process free plate making. KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates help you reduce environmental impact.
CONTROL ON THE GO
Attend to your CTP devices from wherever you are, using only a mobile phone, with Kodak’s Mobile CTP Control App. With the help of our timely notifications and alerts, you'll soon be monitoring devices, managing job queues and running multiple CTPs from anywhere.
Kodak's Mobile CTP Control App is available now for newer models of KODAK MAGNUS, ACHIEVE and TRENDSETTER Platesetters, with support for older models coming soon.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE PLATES, LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Output of KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates saves money and space, eliminates chemistry, reduces plate processor costs and waste, as well as reducing water usage.
