Stand 11100, Hall 11, IFRA Expo, 27-30th October 2008, Amsterdam RAI: FUJIFILM today announces the launch of the Digital Violet Brillia PRO-VN plate, a chemistry-free violet CTP plate specifically developed for the newspaper market.
The launch of Brillia PRO-VN is part of wider strategy to introduce products that have a lower impact on the environment, and further emphasizes FUJIFILM’s commitment to sustainability. In particular, the launch of Brillia PRO-VN means FUJIFILM now has the widest range of plate production solutions (comprising chemistry-free and processless plates together with intelligent plate finishing units) dedicated to helping printers reduce their impact on the environment.
The Brillia PRO-VN newspaper plate utilises FUJIFILM’s “high sensitivity polymerisation” technology, enabling newspaper printers to achieve the same levels of productivity from PRO-VN as they achieve from conventional processed violet CTP plates. In addition, Brillia PRO-VN benefits from FUJIFILM’s patented MultiGrain technology which ensures optimum ink/water balance and advanced handling performance. Based on the same technologies as FUJIFILM’s forthcoming Brillia HD PRO-V chemistry-free violet plate for general commercial print applications, Brillia PRO-VN enables newspaper printers to drastically reduce their chemistry usage and maintenance work of the finishing unit.
