Sonora XP Plates

Kodak Sonora no process litho printing plate

Sonora XP - process free litho printing plate, the latest processless Litho printing plate from Kodak.

The SONORA XP Process Free plate (how it works video) plate from Kodak is a thermal plate that requires no plate processing or chemistry, and uses Kodak’s press ready technology that allows the plate to go directly from platesetter to press with no processing.

  • Free from chemistry
  • Free from processing costs and variability
  • Free to be more profitable and sustainable

The plate offers fast imaging speeds with laser energy required of 150 mJ/cm2 on KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Devices, so printers can, in most cases, take advantage of the maximum throughput speed of their platesetter.

The plate is capable of run lengths up to 200K impressions on heatset and commercial coldset web presses, 100K impressions on sheetfed presses, 50K impressions for non-UV offset packaging applications and 10K impressions for UV-ink applications.

With SONORA XP Plates, in almost all cases, a printer’s current press setups, sequences, inks, fountain solutions, and blankets can be used successfully. Press ready technology also works with integrated and non integrated conventional and continuous dampening systems and for printers with automatic startup sequences.
