Earlier this year, Imprimerie BBM, based in Laval, Quebec, made a significant investment in its sustainability position by installing a Kodak Achieve T800 Platesetter, and converting to Kodak Sonora XP process-free thermal plates.
The Achieve T800, leveraging Kodak’s thermal imaging technology, features a compact footprint and consumes up to 70 percent less power than previous CTP generations. By combining this CTP installation with a switch to Kodak Sonora XP process-free thermal plates, Imprimerie BBM also eliminated plate processing and, therefore, chemicals in the plate-making process. The new technology is also designed to reduce water consumption and energy costs.
At 2,400 dpi, the Achieve T800 has a rated throughput, for plate sizes of 1,030 x 800 mm, of 16 plates per hour (S speed) and 22 plates per hour (F Speed). Plates go directly from the CTP to the press, which Kodak explains to eliminate processing variability, resulting in fewer remakes and higher quality on press.
