The AVFlex 8000, a plate processor designed for lower volume prepress departments seeking the highest quality possible, can process solvent-wash plates up to 12x18 inches. Ideal for narrow web and label applications, the system combines the best of several platemaking systems. A new spiral, two-brush rotary washout provides efficient processing of photopolymer plates. Washout operations are controlled by a SmartPanel processor. Features include automatic drum positioning with forward and reverse job for easy removal of plates. The Exposure/Oven/Finisher features independent digital timers, a three-drawer purge oven with exhaust and an independent drawer for light finishing.
