AUTOMATION PLUS

The TRENDSETTER Q400/Q800 Platesetter now boasts another new automation option to help you grow your business. With the new Multi-Cassette Unit, you can load and unload up to 480 plates automatically. And have up to four different plate sizes online for improved efficiency and productivity.

PACK MORE PUNCH

The TRENDSETTER Q400/Q800 Platesetters feature a fully integrated, in-line punch system option with accurate three-point registration, helping eliminate costly errors by automating the punch process. The punch system option allows for up to 10 customized punch heads once the system is added.

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 its timely alerts and notifications, you'll soon be monitoring devices, managing job queues and running multiple CTPs – from anywhere.

Available now for newer models of KODAK MAGNUS, ACHIEVE, and TRENDSETTER Platesetters, with support for older models coming soon.

HIGH PERFORMANCE. LOW IMPACT.

KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates can save you money and space, eliminating chemistry and reducing plate processor costs and waste, as well as reducing water usage.
