KODAK MAGNUS Q800 Platesetters provide exceptional productivity and efficiency – no matter how big or small your print operation. It boasts the fastest 8-page imaging available, up to 84 plates per hour with the new T-speed Plus option, plus several automation options, industry-leading SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology, and a modular design for easy scalability, helping your business hit levels of platemaking you never dreamed possible.

• Advanced automation
• Maximum stability
• Fastest CTP available



The new T-speed Plus option makes the MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter the fastest 8-page CTP devices in the market, with throughput of up to 84 plates per hour. Or you can choose a 28- or 45-pph system and easily upgrade as your business grows. T-speed is supported by all levels of automation, including the newly-updated Multi-Pallet Loader (MPL), which holds up to 3,200 plates in as many as four formats.

The KODAK MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter delivers exceptional productivity and efficiency to meet the needs of all commercial printers, no matter the size. When combined with optional 10-micron KODAK STACCATO Screening, KODAK PRINERGY Workflow and KODAK Digital Plates, MAGNUS Q800 Platesetters deliver photorealistic results you have to see to believe.

Thermal KODAK SQUARESPOT Imaging Technology is standard on all MAGNUS Q800 Platesetters, automatically compensating for temperature-related plate expansion and contraction, giving you precise, consistent imaging from plate to plate and from machine to machine.


MAGNUS Q800 Platesetters and KODAK SONORA Process Free Plates are a perfect combination. SONORA Plates reduce environmental impact by eliminating the need for plate processing, and they can handle the fast imaging speeds of the MAGNUS Platesetter, so you can get to press quickly while improving the sustainability of your business.

The MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter is designed with the ability to connect remotely to Kodak Service, enabling our team to diagnose and resolve service requests remotely. When you don’t have to wait for a technician, you save money and you're back in production in no time.

Attend to your CTP devices from wherever you are, using only a mobile phone, with the KODAK Mobile CTP Control App. With help from our timely notifications and alerts, you'll soon be monitoring devices, managing queues and running multiple CTPs from wherever you want.


Automating prepress production helps reduce waste and costly errors while optimizing throughput and efficiency. The MAGNUS Q800 Platesetter is available with a variety of automation options to suit any business need.
