Presstek's chemistry-free Aurora Pro thermal CTP plates are designed for thermal CTP systems including Screen’s PlateRite and select Kodak thermal systems. Daylight-safe Aurora Pro plates deliver the reliability and performance of traditional grained anodized aluminum plates without the problems and expense of chemical plate processing. Aurora Pro only requires a simple rinse with water and they are ready for printing. Chemical developing, baking and gumming steps and their associated costs are eliminated.
On press Aurora Pro prints cleaner, sharper images, with less dot gain and greater consistency than conventional offset plates. Presstek's exclusive Pro graining provides exceptional ink/water latitude, resulting in faster roll-up and stable color throughout the press run. The plates make printing easier, cleaner and safer by transforming platemaking from a variable, expensive, messy, and chemistry intensive task into a simple, clean, and easy process.
