Agfa introduces Eclipse, the most convenient process-free printing plate

Eclipse
(PresseBox) ( Mortsel, Belgien, )
Eclipse is a process-free printing plate for sheet-fed commercial printers that combines all the benefits of process-free technology with effortless printing.

Inherent to the nature of a process-free plate, Eclipse eliminates the need for a processor using chemicals. It thus reduces printers’ capex and prepress costs. Agfa’s latest innovation, however, distinguishes itself from other process-free plates as this drop-in is just as easy to use as a conventional plate:

First of all, the plate keeps the press as clean as can be. Patented process-free technology supports the transfer of the plate coating to the first few printed sheets, instead of to the press as is the case with other process-free plates.

In addition, Eclipse is the only process-free plate to provide excellent and stable image contrast, enabling quick visual image inspection as well as recognition by a punch & bending system. That way – even after a week of storage – there will be no mix-ups on press or costly plate remakes. Eclipse keeps its great contrast even after 24 hours in office light, which makes an enormous difference compared to the two hours of other process-free plates. During this period, print quality will be fully preserved in terms of dot gain, toning, start-up time…

Another reason that makes Eclipse an outstanding choice for those desiring to go process-free, is its high scratch resistance. When loading, storing, transporting or mounting this robust plate, printers need not worry about damaging it. The new plate is flexible too, as it can be used with either conventional or H-UV/LED-UV inks.
