Aurora EXP is the next generation chemistry-free plate from Presstek. Aurora EXP combines the performance of grained anodized aluminum plates with the benefits of chemistry-free imaging for superior prepress and pressroom performance.
Once imaged, the Aurora EXP plate requires only a simple water wash, and it is ready to print. No developing, baking or gumming is required. Aurora EXP reduces the total cost of CTP operation by eliminating chemicals and the associated steps and variables in the plating process.
