Kodak MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter

The KODAK MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter is a reliable 8-page CTP device with advanced automation options, offering exceptional productivity and stability to meet the needs of offset printers.


Industry-leading throughput of up to 62 plates per hour
Full range of automation for faster plate making: Semi-automatic plate loading and unloading, Single-Cassette Unit (SCU), Multi-Cassette Unit (MCU), or Automatic Pallet Loader (APL)
Inline punch

Long Unattended Operation

Only Automatic Pallet Loader for 8-page CTP in the industry; automated loading of an entire pallet of up to 600 plates with slip sheets reduces plate handling costs and errors and increases unattended operation in prepress. (Watch demo.)

Ease of Use

Connectivity to KODAK Workflow Systems, including KODAK PRINERGY Workflow
Multi-language option with multiple operating languages
Autorecovery mechanism that fixes many errors with no operator intervention

Excellent Image Quality

MAGNUS Q800 Platesetters enable 450 lpi screening. Optional 20- or 10-micron KODAK STACCATO Screening creates photorealistic images.
2400/1200 dpi or 2540/1270 dpi resolution


KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology is standard on every MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter, providing accurate, stable, repeatable imaging for fewer plate remakes, fewer adjustments in prepress, and exceptional print quality.

Supports Your Sustainability Goals

With the APL, printers can reduce plate packaging cardboard waste by 89% and completely eliminate wrapping paper waste from plate cartons.
Power saving feature for idle status reduces energy use
Output of KODAK SONORA XP Process Free Plates saves money and space, eliminating chemistry and plate processor costs and waste and reducing water usage.

General Specifications


830 nm thermal imaging platesetter, fully or semi-automatic, external drum

Load/unload systems

  • ContinuousLoad (standard): Semiautomated; as one plate is imaged, another is placed on standby for
    automatic loading as soon as the drum unloads.
  • Single-cassette unit (SCU) option: Fully automated; holds up to 100 plates of the same size and thickness
    with slip sheets. Standard: right access; available with optional left access.
  • Multi-cassette unit (MCU) option: Fully automated; holds up to 500 plates in 5 cassettes, each
    containing up to 100 plates of the same size and thickness with slip sheets. The required cassette
    is automatically selected according to the job definition. Empty cassettes can be reloaded while the
    platesetter is running. Standard: right access; available with optional left access.
  • Automatic Pallet Loader (APL): Holds one pallet of up to 600 plates of the same size and thickness
    with slip sheets. Standard cassette tray for up to 100 plates enables a secondary plate size online that
    is different from the pallet plate size. Option to bypass the automatic plate loader by inserting plate
    directly into the platesetter from the loading conveyor. Standard: right access; available with optional
    left access. (Consult your Kodak Plates representative for a current list of plates qualified for the APL.)

Inline punch

  • Up to 10 customized punch heads. Select from a list of punches qualified for Magnus Q800 Platesetter
  • Optional automatic punching is operated according to press profile selected from the Kodak Workflow
  • Punch is available on the front edge of the plate only.
