La lastra termica Kodak Electra XD si basa sulla tecnologia più attuale, best-seller mondiale tra le lastre termiche. Electra XD offre prestazioni eccezionali sia in prestampa che in sala stampa, dove consente tirature fino a 500.000 copie senza cottura. La nuova tecnologia della ELECTRA XD è brevettata e supporta immagini ad alta risoluzione per fornire una stampa di alta qualità.

Thermal Plates build upon the technology of the world’s best-selling thermal printing plates. ELECTRA XD Plates deliver outstanding performance both in prepress and in the pressroom where they are rated for up to 350,000 impressions unbaked. The novel and patented plate technology of the ELECTRA XD Plate supports high resolution imaging to deliver consistent, high quality printing.

  • Enables extremely high-resolution output with excellent color control and consistent reproduction throughout the press run.
  • Very durable, delivering long unbaked run lengths.
  • Patented design delivers exceptional durability and dot stability on press, providing excellent color control and consistent reproduction throughout the full press run.
  • Extraordinarily sharp detail for long, stable runs in both AM and FM applications.
  • Elimination of preheating and fast imaging and processing helps maximize productivity in prepress.
  • Less developer consumption, longer bath life and cleaner processing reduces cost per plate and minimizes chemical waste, maintenance, and impact on the environment.
