Melbourne printer invests in fully integrated Agfa CTP line

The 18-staff firm upgraded from a second-hand Agfa Palladio CTP to an integrated system comprising an Avalon N4 platesetter running Azura V chemistry-free plates with an inline VCF85 clean-out unit and plate stacker.

Agfa also provided its Apogee workflow, including the latest release of Impose.

Core Print managing director Rob Maloney said plates were now being produced more quickly and accurately without chemicals, which made it a lot easier for his 18-person operation to meet deadlines.

“Investing in equipment is a big step in the current economic climate,” he said.

“This step was in line with our continual endeavour to produce quality products in the most cost-effective manner and at the same time improving both quality and productivity.”
