After the introduction of the Attiro clean-out unit earlier this year, Agfa Graphics has now launched the Attiro VHS, built on the same patented cascade concept of the earlier machine.
With an increased plate throughput speed of up to three metres per minute, the Attiro VHS handles plates from platesetters imaging up to 400 plates per hour, such as Agfa Graphics’ newest Advantage N-TR VHS.
“The throughput numbers of Attiro VHS speak for themselves, especially for heavy-duty printers,” said Emiel Sweevers, Newspaper Segment Manager at Agfa Graphics. “They need high plate volumes and require high throughput speeds in the complete pre-press production.”
The Attiro and Attiro VHS are built according to a cascade design concept. There are three sections; the concentrated gum cascades from the third section into the second and later into the first. The gum is therefore reused three times, explains Agfa, resulting in minimal gum consumption yet maximal clean-out effect. It allows users to save on maintenance and gum while contributing to a more sustainable prepress process.
