HighWater gives full accreditation to the Vela Violet LV Plate
Following extensive plate testing HighWater Products Ltd are pleased to announce the accreditation of the Vela Violet LV Photopolymer plate together with HighWater Cobra and Python CtP systems.
Peter Flynn Sales Director at HighWater Products comments; “Violet CtP has certainly come a long way since Agfa started the Violet revolution with their silver based plate technology. In the past three years the situation has changed as we have accredited numerous Violet Photopolymer plates from manufacturers around the world. Violet diode imaging is achieving a substantial market share of the platesetters sold, and gaining an increasing share of the plate supply market.
Some of the new screening technologies that used to be the strong hold of Thermal CtP plates can now be produced to a very high quality standard using Violet plates, as we have seen during the Vela Violet LV plate accreditation process.
The question for all purchasers of CtP should be throughput, cost of ownership, environmental issues and preferred suppliers, rather than what is really now a non-issue, namely Thermal or Violet technology. You only have to look at the success Violet is having in the new emerging CtP markets of China, India and Latin America to realise the excellent total cost of ownership this technology offers.
“We are delighted with the excellent technical evaluation HighWater has completed using our Violet LV violet plate," says Giampaolo Zani, Global Sales Director for Vela. "The results are consistent with our expectations and allow a customer to produce high resolution results that compares favourably with Thermal CtP systems but at an excellent value. We are also very excited about working with HighWater around the world in developing this business. With the introduction of the Vela Violet LV plate in Europe, HighWater Products and Vela are looking forward to a successful partnership in the commercial print sector.”
HighWater Products offers Cascade Harlequin RIP with HXM Hybrid Screening for impressive results on Vela LV Plate.
