Belgian-based, Plantin and Dutch-based Tetterode signed a distribution agreement for the Kodak Flexcel NX System, which was among the solutions on show at Labelexpo. It delivers consistent high quality thanks to unique Kodak Squarespot Imaging Technology and high resolution imaging materials.
The Kodak Flexcel NX System lowers the cost of printing while providing unrivalled results. Kodak has taken its expertise in imaging and materials technology to develop a digital flexo plate system that enables both outstanding image reproduction and robust performance on press. This technology can improve sales and profitability by increasing shelf impact and giving predictable print results, wider production latitude, decreased set up times, plates that last longer, fewer split plates, fewer spot colours and fewer double hits – all adding to production efficiencies that drive overall cost savings.
Plantin sales manager Davy Elsmoortel comments, We’re now not just a total solutions supplier to the offset market, but also to the flexo market.
Together with the KODAK SPOTLESS Flexographic Solution, the FLEXCEL NX System was creatively presented as enabling the next generation of flexo printing capabilities when Kodak, MPS and Reproflex 3 teamed up for an exclusive day of live presentations to show Labelexpo visitors how to ‘Do More With Less’.
The hugely popular demonstrations highlighted how leading prepress and press technologies come together to deliver outstanding, consistent print quality at the lowest delivered cost, and how offset-like quality can cost effectively and efficiently be achieved with the use of fewer spot colour inks in narrow web UV flexo.
Olivier Claude, General Manager for Print and Vice President Commercial Business EAMER, Kodak said, We were very encouraged by the quality of the visitors at the show, the levels of enquiries and the insightful conversations we had. It was clear that this lively sector is thriving and bustling with activity. As such we are delighted to have a broad portfolio of solutions that can provide the high quality, consistent, business winning results our customers need to help them meet the high expectations of brand owners and specifiers.
