Kodak Announces New KODAK SONORA NX2 Process Free Plate for Japan’s Newspaper Printers


Kodak announced today the newest version of its process free plates for newspaper printers in Japan. The new KODAK SONORA NX2 Process Free Plate (developed and manufactured at Kodak’s Gunma facility) delivers faster imaging speeds and develop-on-press performance that will enable newspaper publishers to cut out even more time and costs in their production process. Increased coating strength of the imaging layer on the NX2 plates improves scratch resistance making handling similar to processed plates, which reduces the chance of plate remakes.

One of the most significant factors in the newspaper printing process is the limited amount of time that’s available to run the presses and print daily papers—every second counts. The SONORA NX2 Plate is purpose-built to further streamline the printer’s production process and shave off time and costs, while delivering outstanding on-press performance.
