Press release from the issuing company
Vienna, Austria, Ifra 07 - Stand B620 - 9 October 2007 - Agfa Graphics announced today the launch of the next generation of Agfa's violet photopolymer plate technology, the :N92v. The long-run, high-consistency, no-bake plate for newspaper and commercial printing applications will make its official worldwide debut at the Ifra show in Vienna. :N92v builds on the proven, market-leading, :N91v plate, offering improved run length, higher quality and new levels of performance. The new plate will begin a gradual phase-in in early 2008, and will eventually replace the :N91v.
":N91v has delivered years of reliable service on newspaper presses around the world," said Agfa's worldwide newspaper director, Andy Grant. ":N92v takes newspaper plate technology to new levels of durability and quality. Improving on :N91v was not easy, but we are extremely pleased with the results. This will be a winning technology for our customers."
