Dereli Graphics Finalizes Orders for 21 KODAK CTP Devices

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY, June 11 -- In a move that highlights how important digital technology has become in the Turkish market, Dereli Graphics, Kodak's Istanbul-based distributor finalized orders for 21 CTP devices at drupa 2008.

Dereli Graphics is a long established company, serving not only commercial printers but also packaging and digital printers in Turkey, and has been working together with Kodak for just one year.

"The breadth of the Kodak digital portfolio and the quality, reliability and consistency across the range that these devices bring to the market, has shown our Turkish customers the advantages of moving to digital," comments Mr Ahmet Dereli, owner of Dereli Graphics. "We believe that this is just the beginning, and that many other Turkish printers will follow suit after the sale of this number of devices during the drupa exhibition."

The twenty-one CTP devices that have been sold are a mixture of the KODAK MAGNUS 400 Platesetters; KODAK MAGNUS 800 Platesetters; a KODAK MAGNUS VLF Platesetter; KODAK TRENDSETTER NEWS Thermal Platesetters, and a KODAK THERMOFLEX  Wide  Platesetter featuring the sleeve option.

The KODAK MAGNUS 400 Platesetter is a productive 4-page CTP device using  Kodak's  Thermal Imaging Technology, delivering high throughput, efficient plate handling, and ease of use for commercial printers. It images 16 or 21 plates/hr. with optional advanced automation.

The MAGNUS 800 Platesetter is a B1 device which provides high-quality imaging using KODAK technology and produces up to 40 plates per hour. New engineering and software deliver greater performance and reduced downtime. The modular design allows for advanced automation with an autoloader with a single-cassette unit holding 100 plates or a multi-cassette unit that can hold up to 500 plates. A semi-automatic device is also available, featuring ContinuousLoad that allows for continuous platemaking.

The KODAK MAGNUS VLF QUANTUM Platesetter produces quality imaging with repeatability, reliability, improved functionality, and increased speed for large commercial and packaging printers. It is one of the fastest fully-automated VLF Platesetters on the market, capable of imaging 27 80-inch plates an hour. Featuring premium KODAK SQUARESPOT Thermal Imaging Technology with 10,000 dpi optical resolution, the VLF CTP device delivers the sharpness and consistency to enable high-linescreen or FM screening.

The KODAK TRENDSETTER NEWS Thermal CTP Device comes in five speeds, ranging from 60 to more than 240 plates per hour to suit newspaper printing facilities of all sizes. It delivers fast, reliable imaging with a standard file format interface for newspaper production systems. It is available with semi-automatic or fully automated plate loading and unloading. The machine-to-machine accuracy of KODAK SQUARESPOT Thermal Imaging Heads, combined with the binary nature of thermal imaging, achieves consistent and repeatable halftone dot structures.

The KODAK THERMOFLEX Platesetters are available in Narrow, Mid, and Wide formats, and give printers and converters outstanding imaging quality and process control. All devices feature industry leading imaging systems, including KODAK HYPERFLEX Ready Imaging Technology for flexo, to deliver high impact, repeatable print results. In sleeve mode, the THERMOFLEX Wide Platesetter supports both seamless photopolymer sleeves as well as digital plate-on-sleeve imaging applications. The unique quick-change feature enables a single operator to switch the THERMOFLEX Device from sheet mode to sleeve mode in a matter of minutes, without the need for any auxiliary equipment.
