Kodak installs 15,000th CtP
Wuhan JinGang, the largest commercial printing company in Hubei Province, China, recently installed a Kodak Trendsetter 800 platesetter, marking a significant milestone for Kodak as it is the company’s 15,000th thermal computer-to-plate (CtP) device installation to date. Kodak was the first company to commercialize thermal CtP in 1995, and has since continued to develop new technologies that make these devices faster, more automated, and more sustainable. Thermal CtP devices enable printers to image press-ready thermal printing plates directly from computer files.
Wuhan JinGang installed the 34 plate-per-hour, V-speed Kodak Trendsetter 800 platesetter with autoloader, which is a thermal 8-page CtP device offering outstanding image quality, stability, and maximum efficiency with advanced automation. In addition, Wuhan JinGang is also contracted to purchase Kodak thermal plates, Prinergy Connect workflow, Kodak MatchPrint inkjet proofing system.
