Like Batman’s Alfred, Sexton often works behind the scenes to promote environmental stewardship. Adding to a long list of eco-friendly practices, we’re proud to announce installation of an Agfa Graphics :Azura TS chemistry-free platemaking system. The new computer-to-plate system offers consistent and reliable production without compromises on press. It delivers razor-sharp image definition and holds up to 2%–98% screen tints at 200 lines per inch.
During imaging, particles within :Azura TS materials are fused together by a thermal laser. Physical processes then bond the images to plate substrates. Finally, a dedicated cleaning unit uses gum to finish the plates and clean unfused areas, with absolutely no chemical processing involved. This creates a healthier work environment and annual savings of approximately 150,000 gallons of water, previously required with older equipment.
