I knew I could depend on you guys, I'm touched ('easily and frequently'... according to my wife) by the fact that I'm remembered.

Anyway **sniff sniff**, harrumph **man up!**.....Screen or and AGFA (aka Screen) seems to be the way to go. Anyone heard of a Founder Eagle RIP?

Just for your info...I was due to retire in Nov and was looking forward to it...however, in the course of human events and to my everlasting gratitude I was invited to continue as ops manager, print estimator, delivery man, tea boy and **roll of drums** prepress tech support ... Yay!

So all that balls in the air stuff is (or should be) what we Brits call 'a piece of piss', to an old, gnarled, 40yrs- in- the- trade git like me.

If you are looking at Fuji's XMF workflow, they make a Fuji-badged Screen platesetter as well - Fuji T9300 or T9500 is the latest 8 up version.

We need a DCS/Gnubler/Sabby/Youston reunion

I mean the earth did just open up in Hawaii...   Hell might be spawning new children?  :dev2:

 The only thing that worked properly on the printshop i used to work was a supra 2008 ( or '05 ) model on prinect '11 workflow  ( that's when they bought it and never upgraded ever since )

 We service it a couple of times after doing some ''tests'' the management thought of ( exposing plates on very low speeds so they could be processed on our analogue ( film ) processor  :facepalm:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:
Supra was filled with blue ''debris'' after a couple of months and after the obligatory service ( cleaning ) never stopped - and never got serviced again - if it ain't broke we don't mess with it -

Before prinect i worked a little bit with nexus and preps 5.3 so i can't really compare it with anything else, but i think it's a very productive and user friendly workflow with lots of capabilities!
