Press release from the issuing company

Pronto Reproductions of Mississauga, Ontario (Canada) switches to Azura TE Direct on Press plates for expanded printing capabilities, increased productivity and lowered cost of ownership 

Elmwood Park, NJ – Azura TE chemistry-free direct on press plates have helped a Mississauga printer expand its printing capabilities and increase productivity, all while benefiting the environment with no waste or maintenance. Pronto Reproductions Ltd. of Ontario (Canada) made the switch earlier this year, and has never been happier. 

Pronto Reproductions provides a range of print, digital and finishing services with expertise, integrity and accomplished customer service. With a high commitment to quality, best practices and environmental care, Pronto is recognized as the printer of choice for greater Toronto’s leading graphic design and advertising firms.

By switching to Azura TE chemistry-free direct on press thermal plates, Pronto added another eco-friendly talking point as the company markets itself to its current customer base and seeks to attract new clients. More importantly, the plates help Pronto provide superior print jobs, something their customers also appreciate. 

“Since switching to Azura TE, the image is now visible on the plate prior to roll-up and allows our pressmen to shorten make ready times, and minimize paper waste,” said Jennifer Burlington, Customer Experience Manager, Pronto Reproductions. “Azura also helps Pronto stay committed to our sound environmental practices by providing chemical–free, processless plates all while delivering superior quality.”  

Azura TE is a thermal, negative-working plate designed for commercial sheet fed printing operations. Based on ThermoFuse technology, the first Azura plate was introduced in 2004 at drupa. Breakthrough ThermoFuse technology has set the standard in chemistry-free platemaking ever since. 

“Outstanding image contrast, superior daylight resistance and fast make-ready are the top features of the Azura TE chemistry-free printing process,” said Dave Carey, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Agfa Graphics, North America. “Combined with no waste and no maintenance, Azura TE delivers consistent results and high image quality, unlike others in the marketplace.”

When it comes to the best solution, Pronto Reproductions is finding that the Azura TE can image, mount and print efficiently which makes them more productive.
