    Agfa have discontinued their line of P-55 positive plates. Still producing them for now but not for much longer.

    I don't really have the money, need or space for a CTP system. Conventional plates are quite well suited to the type of work I do.

    Anybody know of anyone else who makes positive plates with an agent in Australia?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Travis,
    there are Huaguang´s positive PS plate types YP-II and YP-S. Lucky Huaguang Graphics Co. Ltd. from Nanyang/China is cooperating with AGFA since a couple of years. Huaguang is manufacturing different AGFA-labeled CTP-Plates and more. I don´t know if there is a distributor for Huagaung in Australia but it is worth to find it out. I have done a number of successful CTP installations and plate changings together with Huaguang Germany.

    Thanks Martin,
    I'm waiting to hear back from them regarding an agent here in Australia.
    Fingers crossed.
    Appreciate your advice.
