IML Labels Finds Success with Agfa's :Energy Elite Plates

Press release from the issuing company

(November 24, 2008) Agfa Graphics announced today that IML Labels, a specialty label printer in Saint-Eustache, Montreal has found success serving its packaging clients all over North America using an :Avalon LF CtP system and running :Energy Elite plates. IML Labels opened its doors in May of 2007 and has used Agfa equipment and media right from the start. IML president Donald Caron and his staff have stated that they are impressed with Agfa's commitment to technology and customer service, leading IML to choose the Agfa system.

"We've worked with Agfa's products from day one and they all work together to give us excellent quality output. Our labels have to be perfect because our customers demand the best for their IML labels for packaging and their system is the best," said Caron. "Dot reproduction is very important to IML and with :Energy Elite plates, we get the consistency and quality we need. We get fast make-ready work in the first few sheets and have reduced waste as as result. We consider ourselves to be state-of-the-art and Agfa has played a major role in getting us there."

:Energy Elite is a high speed, high quality thermal plate designed for long press runs. The plate uses an advanced, patented emulsion technology that tolerates variations in exposure and processing. It has excellent chemical resistance and delivers superb press performance with a wide variety of inks, including UV and hybrid. It was honored last year with a GATF Intertech Technology award for its patented emulsion technology. Used with the :Avalon thermal imaging system, it brings a new level of quality, flexibility and reliability to CtP imaging.
