Kodak Achieve 400

Exceptional quality and value

The Kodak Achieve 800 Platesetter delivers the stability and reliability of Kodak’s thermal CTP technology at exceptional value, enabling you to provide print quality that differentiates you from your competition. Based on the successful Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter platform and Kodak’s new TH5 thermal imaging technology, the Achieve Platesetter brings high quality imaging and Kodak’s award-winning, pioneering technology to the masses. This robust external drum thermal CTP device has been specifically designed for the demanding needs of general commercial and publication printers.
With a small footprint that minimises space requirements, the Achieve Platesetter meets international ergonomic standards for easy access and minimal physical effort, and offers reliable plate making of 16 or 22 8-page plates per hour. Several automation options meet your business needs and help drive maximum productivity and reduced labour costs. The Kodak Achieve Platesetter is optimised for Kodak Media* and open for other vendors’ qualified plates.

Driving profitability with reliable, flexible plate making

In order to improve the profitability of your business, you need to have a CTP system that will make quality plates day in and day out. Outstanding reliability helps minimise service costs and maximise press uptime. Downtime, plate remakes, and poor imaging quality will quickly wipe out any cost benefits from low-cost platesetters or consumables. With Kodak’s consistent thermal imaging technology, the Achieve Platesetter gives you the stability and reliability you need to optimise your prepress and pressroom operations.

Superior imaging technology

Achieve Platesetters feature Kodak’s new TH5 thermal head, which delivers higher quality than the Gaussian technology used in other vendors’ CTP devices. The TH5 head images a more precise, accurate dot, leading to higher tonal stability and exposure uniformity. The TH5 thermal head also delivers outstanding robustness, with no moving parts, and is simple to service and maintain.

Minimising environmental impact

The Achieve Platesetter can help you maximise quality and productivity while minimising environmental impact. With power savings of up to 40% while imaging**, the system is designed for energy conservation, so now you have a system that is cost-efficient and robust. The Kodak Achieve Platesetter also supports Kodak Sonora XP Process Free Plates, so you can completely eliminate your processor and chemistry—including related maintenance costs and labour—without compromising quality or productivity. To succeed in today’s changing market, you need products and technologies that can help you control costs while boosting quality. The Kodak Achieve
