Agfa Graphics enlisted the facility of one of its long-standing customers to began a yearlong celebration of its 10-year anniversary of Azura technology, described by Agfa as a chemistry-free printing plate that has been used by thousands of customers around the world.

Agfa explains that Azura TS, a negative-working plate designed for commercial sheetfed printing operations, provides simplified platemaking based on its ThermoFuse technology.

With similar Azura anniversary celebrations planned for the rest of the printing world, the first event took place at RJ Multi Litho in late June. Based in Oakville, Ontario, RJ Multi Litho has been using Azura TS plates for more than seven years.


The commercial printer, which runs a range of 40-inch Komori presses, also leverages Agfa Apogee for prepress automation and images its Azura TS plates on an Agfa Avalon CTP system.

Headquartered in Mortsel, Belgium, Agfa is present in 40 countries and has agents in another 100 countries around the globe. The Agfa-Gevaert Group achieved a turnover of 2,620 million euros in 2014.
