Agfa Strengthens Prepress Productivity with New Automation Solution

Tuesday, September 23, 2003

Press release from the issuing company

Tokyo, Japan – IGAS (Booth E-3-09) – 23 September 2003 – Agfa announced the addition of the new productivity-enhancing :PlateManager for its :Xcalibur 45 thermal platesetter. The :Xcalibur 45 becomes the latest Agfa CtP system – joining the thermal :Xcalibur VLF and the violet laser-based :Galileo – to have automated plate loading functionality. With the new :PlateManager, printers can maintain 250 (12 mil) plates in four cassettes online without sacrificing throughput. It can run unattended and features a manual plate override function. It has a small footprint, and can fit into virtually any printing environment. "The addition of the Plate Manager for the :Xcalibur 45 makes an already productive system ever more attractive and functional," said Agfa’s Theo De Keersmaecker, worldwide marketing director, CtP Solutions. "Current :Xcalibur 45 users can easily add the :PlateManager to either a Manual or Job Level Automation system."
