Scheduled to speak at this year’s conference is Nick Brunk, National Sales Manager, Packaging Segment, Kodak. Brunk’s presentation, titled “More with Less: A Flexography Fable,” will take place at the INFO*FLEX Forum Presentation Theater on Monday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 3, 2011 from 4:05 to 4:20 p.m. On Monday, May 2, 2011 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Jean Engelke, past Chair of Forum and current Future Product Marketing Manager at Kodak, will speak at the Flexo Quality Consortium (FQC) Session.
Kodak will offer attendees a preview of the new KODAK SPOTLESS Flexographic Solutions—an intuitive, customer friendly solution for the generation of accurate process color recipes for spot color replacement in flexo printing. The solution enables customers to more easily take advantage of the expanded color gamut, production efficiency and cost saving benefits enabled by KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plate technology.
KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates, through greater print stability, higher densities and expanded color gamut, enable greater use of four color process printing and replacement of many spot colors. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, accurate recipes for spot color replacement are required that take into account the unique highlight characteristics (minimum printed dot) of wide web flexo printing. The KODAK SPOTLESS Flexographic Solutions enable characterization of specific print conditions and the generation of recipe libraries for spot color replacement.
