ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 12 -- 

When the KODAK FLEXCEL NX System was introduced at drupa 2008, it was immediately recognized as a gamechanger for flexography. Never before had the industry seen a digital platemaking system that enabled such advancements in production efficiency, stability and repeatability, while delivering image quality that rivals gravure. Five years later, the FLEXCEL NX System is being used in more than 50 countries around the world, where it is driving transformation in flexo printing by pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. A significant milestone is reached this month with the announcement of the installation of the 300th FLEXCEL NX System.

This innovative system has garnered some of the industry’s most prestigious awards: the PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award for the system itself and for the unique KODAK DIGICAP NX Screening that revolutionizes ink transfer capabilities, the FTA Technical Innovation Award, and the Flexographic Prepress Platemakers Association (FPPA) Technical Innovator of the Year Award. Over the years, FLEXCEL NX System users have captured hundreds of industry awards for flexographic printing excellence.

To celebrate the FLEXCEL NX System’s five years of innovation, differentiation and excellence, Kodak has just published the story of how this technology is shaping the businesses of five of our many global customers. This new publication showcases how the FLEXCEL NX System has helped them fill a void in the market, bringing new levels of quality and efficiency, and enabling them to do more with less.

Ben Abray, President of Autumn Graphics, notes, “You have to stand out as a provider that understands the market and adopts the best technology to deliver outstanding results. Our clients trust us to help them maximize their brand value, help their packages stand out on store shelves, and help them be as efficient as possible in every job. The FLEXCEL NX System is one of the tools we use today that makes that possible.”

Andrew Hewitson, Joint Managing Director of UK prepress service provider Reproflex3, states, “There is no other technology in the market that can deliver the consistency the FLEXCEL NX System technology can deliver. The laser technology delivers more detail—it has a far superior dot structure, more accurate reproduction and more stable print. In our experience, the FLEXCEL NX System is totally predictable and robust. We’ve built a strong business with the FLEXCEL NX System in the competitive narrow and wide web market by offering something different. As I look ahead, I am very excited about what the future holds for flexo technology and for our business.”

The FLEXCEL NX System has been instrumental in helping U.S.-based Splash Graphics grow its business with a differentiated offering. Company partner Dhiren Sanghani says, “When you are entering a new market, or talking to a brand owner, you need innovation that will bring disruptive improvements—that makes them stand up and listen—and the FLEXCEL NX System gave us that.”

The FLEXCEL NX System is the cornerstone of Kodak’s industry-leading portfolio of flexographic solutions, designed to help customers print better and print smarter. To learn more about the KODAK FLEXCEL NX System, please visit www.kodak.com/go/packaging.
