AgfaPhotoFlaire Print purchases Agfa CtP system : Agfa announced today that Flaire Print Communications (Minneapolis, MN) has purchased a new chemistry-free CtP system from Agfa, featuring the four-up :Acento with :Azura plates and :Sublima cross modulated (XM) screening. Flaire Print Communications has 15 employees and specializes in business stationary, collateral marketing materials along with Digital printing. The new CtP system, combined with the :ApogeeX digital workflow, has given company officials the ability to provide higher levels of quality printing for these and other products and services. Not only do they offer high quality printing with fast turnaround times, they can do it while doing their part to help the environment.
Flaire Print purchases Agfa CtP systemFlaire Print - Great printer
"Our pressman tells me that the :Azura plate is the best he's ever worked with. I personally see the difference. I thought we were a good printer before. Now we are a great printer!" said Mark Kuzma, president, Flaire Print Communications. "We are always trying to go a step beyond to stay competitive. Our new Agfa CtP system has us at a whole new level and we aggressively sell those differences to our customers."

Flaire Print - Environment
The environment was a major concern in Flaire's decision to move to the new :Acento chemistry-free CtP system. Flaire participates in the Printing Industry of Minnesota's (PIM) "Great Printers Environmental Initiative." Membership in the GPEI requires area printers to go beyond the minimum environment compliance regulations.

Agfa system - :Azura
"Flaire Print Communications has been leading the way when it comes to fulfilling the requirements of our program," said Paul Gutkowski, safety and environmental services director, PIM. "Systems such as Agfa's :Azura create less pollution in the environment and help to create a safer working environment for a printer's employees."

Flaire Print Communications - Care and concern
"We are trying to get all the print buyers to consider us, not only for our exceptional quality and service, but because of our care and concern for our environment. We are always trying to better ourselves and the elimination of developer was critical to our decision to go with Agfa's CtP system," Kuzma said.

Flaire Print Communications - ThermoFuse technology
":Azura and its ThermoFuse technology allow printers to eliminate water and developer from the CtP process. As a result, the :Azura system can be quite beneficial to a printer's bottom line and more environmentally sensitive," said Agfa's David Furman, senior marketing manager, CtP systems, North America. "For example, with :Azura, a typical four-up printer would only use a small container of gum per month, versus traditional CtP systems that use thousands of gallons of water, developer and finisher. This could save printers up to thousands of dollars each year."

About :Azura
:Azura is a grained and anodized aluminium thermal printing plate that uses patented ThermoFuse technology to physically bond images to the plate without any chemical processing. A clean-out step follows the non-ablative imaging process to enhance contrast. The result is highly stable and predictable thermal imaging, without any compromises on press. :Azura plates offer high quality (2-98% dots on plate) imaging for printers using 2-, 4- and 8-up formats.
