This robust external-drum thermal CTP device has been specifically designed for the demanding needs of general commercial and publication printers. With a small footprint that minimizes space requirements, the ACHIEVE Platesetter meets international ergonomic standards for easy access and minimal physical effort, and offers reliable plate making of up to 22 8-page plates per hour. Affordable automation options meet your business needs and help drive maximum productivity, flexible resources and reduced labor costs.

• Advanced automation
• Best-in-class imaging technology
• New app for remote monitoring



KODAK ACHIEVE T400/T800 Platesetters are robust and reliable CTP devices that deliver the stability of Kodak’s thermal light-valve imaging technology at a surprisingly low cost. They're based on the successful KODAK TRENDSETTER Platesetter platform and available with a variety of automation and speed options.

The ACHIEVE T400/T800 Platesetter now has another automation option to help you grow your business. The new Multi-Cassette Unit (MCU) offers automated plate loading and unloading of up to 480 plates. With the MCU, you can have up to four different plate sizes online for improved efficiency and productivity. Five automation options are available, so you can choose the level that matches your business requirements.

Attend to your CTP devices from wherever you are, using only a mobile phone, with Kodak’s Mobile CTP Control App. With the help of its timely alerts and notifications, you'll soon be monitoring devices, managing job queues and running multiple CTPs – from anywhere.

Available now for newer models of KODAK MAGNUS, ACHIEVE, and TRENDSETTER Platesetters, with support for older models coming soon.


ACHIEVE Platesetters use Kodak’s TH5 Imaging Technology, which is based on our proven thermal light-valve technology, delivering incredible accuracy and stability. Thermal technology enables true process free plate making, helping you reduce your environmental impact with KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates.

ACHIEVE Platesetters can be an important part of your company's sustainability strategy. Our latest models let you save power in prepress--over both our previous CTP devices and the competition--without sacrificing productivity or uptime. ACHIEVE T400/T800 Platesetters use only 400 watts of power while imaging, up to 93% less than some competitive devices. Pair an ACHIEVE Platesetter with SONORA Process Free Plates and you're saving energy, water, and chemistry, in prepress, plus reducing waste in the pressroom with accurate and stable plates.
