Kodak Offset CTP




Kodak Modular and upgradeable CTP (computer-to-plate) solutions

KODAK CTP Devices deliver exceptional productivity and image quality to commercial printers. Every KODAK Platesetter is a solid business investment that combines superb quality and reliability with the flexibility to output conventional thermal and processless plates by Kodak.

KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology is Kodak’s award-winning thermal imaging technology, available only in KODAK Platesetters. SQUARESPOT Technology allows printers to reach a higher level of stability, accuracy, and reliability in their printing operation.

Stability leads to consistency in prepress, which in turn leads to efficiency and cost savings. SQUARESPOT Technology adds stability by producing precise and robust halftone dots that are less susceptible to variations in plate, processor, and environmental conditions than other thermal or violet imaging technologies.

  • 10000 dpi for commercial printing, 5000 dpi for newspaper printing
  • KODAK Platesetters with SQUARESPOT Technology help reduce chemistry usage, plate waste, remakes, makeready times, compromised color, and premature plate wear
  • KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology minimizes the impact of fluctuations during the developer lifecycle and keeps dot area within manufacturing tolerances of +/-2%. 
  • Dynamic autofocus technology tracks the surface of the plate to maintain exact laser focus, exposure, and pixel size as the drum rotates.
  • Automatic temperature compensation makes minor adjustments to the scale of the image on the plate to compensate for plate expansion due to ambient temperature fluctuations. 
  • Increased uptime because there is no risk of emitter failure or individual pixel failure, even if a laser fails.
