A big change in the offset printing world over the last decade or so has been the rise of UV. As UV becomes more popular with commercial printers, thanks to new, low-energy UV technologies, here at Kodak we’ve been developing new offset plates that can extend the benefits of UV for printers.   

UV printing offers several advantages over conventional offset printing, such as fewer emissions of VOC’s, fast-drying inks, the ability to print on additional substrates, vibrant colors and high gloss levels.

Is Your CTP Device or Digital Press Vulnerable to Hacking?

If you have an older platemaking system or digital press, you should be taking some steps to protect your print business from computer viruses and other forms of cyber attacks. The recent “WannaCry” ransomware used a flaw in Microsoft’s software to lock files so they couldn’t be used until the user paid a ransom to cyber criminals, and new malware is being developed and released continuously.
