Köstlin Prepress Services Commits to High Quality Flexographic Platemaking With the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution

Köstlin Prepress Services of Ditzingen recently added Miraclon’s KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution to its range of flexo platemaking technologies for high quality packaging printing.

While Köstlin offers a broad portfolio of flexographic printing options and photopolymer sleeves, the production of KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates reportedly accounts for 60 percent of all flexo plates produced.

The company first began using a FLEXCEL NX Wide 4260 System in 2013. This system has now been joined by the FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution, which unites all of the quality and performance benefits of the well-established FLEXCEL NX System with solvent-free, VOC-free, water based processing of the flexo plates.

“FLEXCEL NX Ultra will help us systematically reduce our solvent consumption and produce plates in a more environmentally friendly way,” said Talmon Gros, managing director, Köstlin.  “Added to that, the FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution will give us even more flexibility and enable our printers to get the plates much faster, which is a big advantage in many situations.”

During the few weeks since it was put into operation, Köstlin has reportedly completed the first production runs using the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution in cooperation with a few selected printers with great success.

“Not only are our customers extremely satisfied with the achievable print quality, stability and handling capabilities of the FLEXCEL NX Ultra Plates; some are already specifying using only these plates going forward,” added Gros.
