Computer to Plate System Description
Affordable excellence that will help your commercial printing business thrive – that’s the promise of Avalon 8-up platesetters. With their reputation for solid dependability, these CtP engines prove themselves in terms of quality, consistency and productivity, and they’re sustainable to boot.
The Avalon 8-up series features entry-level engines (B8-24S, B8-24XT, N8-30E, N8-30S, N8-30XT) as well as high-performance platesetters (N8-90E, N8-90S, N8-90XT). Simply select the engine that suits your needs in terms of throughput speed (from 14 to 70 pph), features and scalability, and start boosting your business.
Computer to Plate System Features
While Avalon 8-up entry-level platesetters feature fiber-coupled laser technology to guarantee superior quality, the high-end engines are equipped with Grating Light Valve (GLV) imaging technology, featuring both the GLV itself and a solid-state laser diode bar. The result? A large number of beams, ensuring exceptional imaging speed and a low drum rotation velocity.
One of Agfa Graphics’ star performers, Avalon addresses the needs of large, medium and small-volume printers. Combine the Avalon N8-90XT and the Energy Elite Eco printing plate to reach an exceptional throughput speed of 70 pph. Most of the Avalon platesetters are also upgradable, and evolve with you as your business grows.
Automation – Make your choice
All entry-level engines feature manual loading, but they can be combined with a single or multi-cassette autoloader for increased automation and productivity. In the case of the Avalon B8, autoloading comes in the shape of a ‘Job Level Automation’ unit.
For the high-end Avalon N8-90 engine, there’s an advanced option: the Expert Loader
Going all out on productivity? Achieve a sustainable competitive advantage with Agfa Graphics’ Expert Loader – a compact 8-up pallet loader for full prepress automation, which can be added to the Avalon N8-90. It comes in two models: the Expert Loader Fix and the upgradable Expert Loader Var.
The Avalon 8-up can be upgraded to meet your expanding production requirements. Using the same base engine, you can upgrade from an entry-level manual machine to a high-productivity, fully automated model by simply adding modules.
Sublime imaging quality
Avalon 8-up engines yield consistent, first-rate imaging quality of up to 340 lpi Sublima, depending on your model. Even entry-level platesetters outdo the competition in imaging resolution (up to 280 lpi Sublima), guaranteeing Avalon’s trademark excellence.
