Kodak's Sonora UV Process Free Plate

Kodak’s new Sonora UV Process Free Plate – the latest addition to the company’s process-free technology portfolio – is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Sonora UV Plates are capable of delivering longer run lengths for UV print applications than any other process free plate – up to 30,000 impressions. This allows printers to take advantage of both the environmental and economic benefits of process free plates and the expanded set of opportunities associated with UV technology, including flexibility, high print quality, and faster drying times.

'There's no alternative': Torsten Gröger, cre art Die Werbeproduktion

“As far as we’re concerned, there’s no alternative to Kodak’s process free plates when it comes to UV printing,” says happy customer Torsten Gröger, production director at cre art Die Werbeproduktion in Fulda, Germany. “We simply don’t have room for a plate processor and these plates have the general advantage of less effort and lower costs for plate making as well as more stability.

“Thanks to the Kodak Sonora UV Process Free Plate and the extensive capabilities of our press, which is equipped with numerous UV and print enhancement extras, we can produce complex and demanding jobs on any substrate. The level of creativity and quality is very high, and this kind of job would have been technically impossible a few years ago.”

Richard Rindo, GM Worldwide Offset Print and VP Print Systems Division, Kodak, says the company is committed to investing in R&D that advances the capabilities of print service providers and equips them to offer a wider range of applications.

“Over 3,000 customers around the world are yielding significant cost and environmental benefits from Somora and with Kodak manufacturing facilities now located in the USA, Europe, Japan and China, printers across the globe benefit from faster supply, support and customer service.”
