Digital Plates

Agfa Galileo VS

The Galileo is arguably the most advanced platesetter available. It delivers fast, accurate plates with excellent consistency — shift to shift, plate to plate, and year to year. Our front-end is built around Agfa’s Apogee pdf-based workflow. Utilizing a “RIP once–print many” approach, we image proofs, film and digital plates from a common pdf file. This ensures that the proofs show exactly how plates or film work on press. We use Agfa’s highest quality aluminum plates (Lithostar Ultra-V), which are based on Agfa’s proven silver halide technology. Using Preps as a part of Apogee, we can deliver plates customized for your pressroom and your specific needs.

Max Size 44.5″ x 32.29″ — 6, 8 or 12 gauge plates

Sublima

Sublima is Agfa’s hybrid screening technology that combines stochastic and traditional line screens to produce stunning results. In many cases if you can run 175 lpi you can run 340 sublima without any extra effort on press. Moire and negative side effects of stochastic (i.e. “worming”) are eliminated using this process. Call Andy to discuss all of the details in setting up Sublima for your pressroom.

Imagesetting

Agfa’s SelectSet Avantra series are productive and reliable large-format laser imagesetters. Their high quality and accuracy are combined with innovations and intelligent features for fast, efficient, large-format film output. With these imagesetters you can offset print packaging, posters, books, magazines and other jobs that require larger output or imposition. Plate-ready, punched film for press sheets up to 28″ x 40″.

Proofing

Digital Proofs

Agfa Sherpa 44M

The Sherpa 44M is a seven-color proofer that generates color accurate contract proofs. The additional ink colors add the ability to represent many Pantone colors accurately. As a part of our Apogee workflow, these proofs display all overprinting and trapping as it will occur on press. To ensure color accuracy and job portability we use ICC profiles calibrated to a 3rd party standard (NASSv2). A print job with a consistent look can be achieved on different presses or in different shops because of our adherence to this standard. We can create custom press curves if needed — call for details.

Agfa Sherpamatic 43 Precision Duplex Proofing System

The Sherpamatic 43 is a large format, six-color proofing system that provides two-sided imposition proofs. These proofs are ideal for proofing content and evaluating the press layout of a job. Please note that color accuracy is an approximation because uncoated paper is used. We highly recommend ordering both types of proofs to ensure color accuracy and proper setup for your press. If you are unsure of what types of proofs you may need, please give us a call to discuss. We can also coordinate press setups with your bindery if they have specific requirements.
