Hello

We would like to try out other plates on our screen-platesetter, including the Kodak Sonora X processless plate in the PlateRite 8000.

The technician asked me in advance for the following information, maybe someone has the combination in use and can tell me the following parameters?:

1) Required laser energy
(in the Kodak technical Datasheet is only to read about "different" values according to type of platesetter and resolution.
We work mostly with 175lpi and screen SPEKTA (300) with 2400dpi)

2) % laser power

3) drum speed


Thanks a lot in advance

How do the prices compare to the Sonora XP plates? Still waiting to hear back from a rep on these. I am assuming they cost more as they are not a replacement for the XP series?

I was told they are the same price by our rep. Still waiting to get some. Kodak seems to move rather slowly.

Hi PrintPlanet,

Anyone with a Screen PlateRite 4300E using Kodak Sonora XP Process Free Plates (0.20mm gauge)?
Will appreciate settings for Laser Energy / Laser Power % / Drum Speed if you use this combination
of Plate and Platesetter. We mostly print at 175 lpi with 2400 dpi if that's any help.

Thanks.

So You Want to Invest In Inkjet

I Want to Invest in Inkjet, But…
Over the past few years I’ve watched a group of transactional and direct mail printers strategically shift from monochrome toner machines to full-color toner and inkjet presses. Most banished old black-only toner boxes but kept their color toner devices around because they anticipated needing both color inkjet and toner presses to meet customer needs. They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
