Just like a painter combines his paints, brushes and canvases to create the perfect painting, Agfa carefully matches inks, printing engines and media to build best-in-class large-format inkjet printing systems.
It invested in a system consisting of an Avalon platesetter, Arkana smart processor and Energy Elite Eco thermal printing plates, in addition to PressTune software that controls and stabilizes the printing process.
Coldset Printing Partners (CPP) originated in 2010 as the joint-venture of the cold set printers of Belgium’s largest media groups Corelio and Concentra. It is the largest newspaper printer in Belgium. To build out a central control center for both printing sites CPP turned to Agfa.
“We’re a one-stop shop. Our selling point is delivering color consistency from business cards to letterhead to car wraps. PressTune gives us confidence that we are to color and can get to production faster.”
Print service providers who want to extend their customer service and expand their market reach can rely on Agfa’s cloud based web-to-print solutions. While Apogee StoreFront is geared towards commercial printers, Asanti StoreFront targets the large-format market. Both ecommerce solutions are an integral part of the Apogee and Asanti workflow systems.
Eleven years after the worldwide launch of the first chem-free violet newspaper CtP plate, Agfa launches Avatar V-ZH, which does not require pre-heating. The plate marks the next milestone in terms of economic and ecological platemaking.
