Agfa Graphics has introduced two new 8-up thermal platesetters, the :Avalon N8-60 and the :Avalon N8-80. The two models also come in different speed versions.
According to Agfa, the 8-up option leads to improved reliability and stable plate imaging. The company has also redesigned its single and multi-cassette autoloaders to allow reloading during exposure. Another new feature is a standby mode which saves 85 percent on power consumption.
“When you combine the new :Avalon engines with our ThermoFuse plates, chemistry-free :Azura TS or :Amigo TS, you get unparalleled productivity and quality” said Eddy de Dobbeleer, Marketing output systems at Agfa Graphics. “The new engine in combination with Agfa Graphics’ :Apogee workflow and the :Sublima cross-modulated (XM) screening outperforms any other solution in the market on speed, ease of use and process stability.”
