Eliminate the processing variables that you worry about, and get the reliable and consistent quality that your clients deserve: with Azura TS, the chemical-free plate system.
The Azura TS is a thermal plate for low- to medium-volume commercial printing where simplicity and reliability are priorities. It allows you to preserve the high-quality imaging of traditional platemaking, without press changes or chemical processing.
Chemistry-free platemaking? That’s right, thanks to the ThermoFuseTM particles in the anodized aluminum plate coating. The thermal laser heats up the coating, causing the particles to fuse and bond firmly to the aluminum. After exposure, the plate is cleaned and gummed in one simple step by the Azura Clean-Out Unit (COU). The result? Razor-sharp image definition, in runs of up to 100,000, depending on press conditions.
• Simplified platemaking thanks to advanced ThermoFuseTM technology
• Clear and consistent high-quality results
• Environmentally friendly
• Safer work environment because of the chemistry-free procedure
• Reduction of waste and disposal costs formerly associated with chemicals
No Processing Variables
Azura TS plates can easily be added to any workflow. Because they use no chemical processing, they are safer, simpler and more consistent for everyone to use. And they provide the convenience of daylight handling, allowing them to be used in any prepress environment.
No Special Press Room Handling
Azura TS plates work with your existing press workflow, so you can keep on working with the same inks, fountain solutions, or alcohol substrates.
