“The addition of the :PlateManager for the :Xcalibur 45 makes an already poductive system ever more attractive and functional”, said Theo De Keersmaecker, worlwide marketing director CtP-Solutions at Agfa. “Current :Xcalibur 45 users can easily add the :PlateManager to either a Manual or Job Level Automation system.”
Agfa introduced the new double-wide CtP-Platesetter :Polaris XD-J for newspaper printers in Japan. The first showing of the device – available wither with a violet or FD-YAG-laser, attracted lots of interest especially within the Japanese market as there is a substantial requirement for the use of the long-plate press format which the Polaris XD-J serves. It can output 110 1W2L-format plates per hour as well as 2W2L-format plates and the input cassettes allow the housing of over 2,000 plates of different types online.
