Mitsubishi Imaging Receives Distinguished Technology Award
Mitsubishi Imaging's Thermal DigiPlate was recently awarded the 2009 Distinguished Technology Award presented by the Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology. The Distinguished Technology Award recognizes a technology that made an extraordinary contribution to the development of printing.
Thermal DigiPlate had already been awarded a "GOLD" Clione Mark ranking by the Environment Pollution Prevention Printing Association (E3PA) in Japan. This rank is only given to printing plates that are recognized as the most ecological in the industry.
Thermal DigiPlate's thermal fusing technology generates printing plates that are processless and do not require any chemical development. The system produces no waste except for the plate itself.
