Agfa Graphics’ ThermoFuseTM technology is characterized by particles in the aluminum plate coating that fuse to each other and bond to the plate when the plate is heated. This creates a solid ink-accepting image, capable of printing 150,000 copies in one run.
Azura TU covers all sizes of sheetfed presses from B2 up to sheetfed format 6 and 7 for book and display printing. It also serves the fast growing web-to-print applications that are printed on VLF sheetfed presses.
Not only does Azura TU raise your platesetter productivity. It also eliminates process variables and thus guarantees more reliable and consistent results. Another benefit to this technology is that it’s environmentally friendly, as chemicals are unnecessary and water consumption can be reduced by up to 95% compared to conventional prepress systems.
