ROCHESTER, NY | Kodak has introduced a computer-to-plate (CTP) print solution for package printing. The Kodak Flexcel NX digital flexographic system provides near offset print quality on a variety of substrates, including paper, flexible film, foil, and label stock. The system includes the Flexcel NX 830 thermal imaging layer, a choice of Trendsetter NX narrow or mid imaging, Flexcel NX laminator, Flexcel NX digital flexographic plates, and the Prinergy workflow system for packaging.
The Flexcel NX thermal imaging layer is imaged using Kodak Squarespot imaging technology to provide high resolution images with highlight dots as small as 10 microns. Imaging occurs at up to 9.5 sq. m. per hour, with imaging reportedly taking only about half the time as other digital flexo plates. Post imaging, the thermal imaging layer is laminated to a Flexcel NX digital flexographic plate. See kodak.com.
