#Ipex: Kodak to Deliver Innovation Across its Integrated Portfolio
New opportunities in packaging
Attendees will see the unveiling of the Kodak Flexcel Direct System, new features for the Kodak Flexcel NX Digital Flexographic System and enhancements to the Kodak Approval NX System.
A brand new member of the Flexcel Family, the Kodak Flexcel Direct System is being unveiled at Ipex. The new system includes imager, media and workflow from Kodak, and features innovative new technology for direct laser engraving of flexo forms. The result is an affordable solution for flat plate, plate on sleeve, or continuous sleeve applications that simplifies the plate making process, removes the need for chemical processing, and improves on-press performance.
The new Kodak Digicap NX Screening feature, available as part of the current Flexcel NX System, is designed to further improve the visual impact of flexible package printing by dramatically improving ink transfer. Regardless of the design or line screen, Kodak Flexcel NX Plates with Digicap NX Screening enable higher print densities, better print contrast, and cleaner tones while enabling production efficiencies and reduced costs.
In addition, the Kodak Approval NX Digital Color Imaging System is now optimized for packaging applications, enabling package printers to reduce time to market, save money on flexo plates, and more accurately match proofs to press output. And for offset package printers, the new Trillian SP Plates are an ideal solution with capabilities to print in harsh press environments, including UV and EB applications, without postbaking. The Kodak Prinergy Powerpack Workflow helps users maintain control and peak efficiency throughout the package printing process.
“Ipex comes at a critical time in our industry,” noted Payne. “A time when commercial printers, publishers, package printers and data printers are focused on solutions that leverage experience and true innovation to help them solve their most pressing business challenges. With Kodak as a partner, our customers are poised to capitalize on the exciting opportunities present in all areas of the industry. We offer print professionals a diverse, unique set of tools and solutions that is unmatched today.”
