Kodak Discusses How FLEXCEL NX System Can Increase Revenue and Lower Costs at Institut des Graphic du Québec Open House

Attendees at last week's Institut des Graphic du Québec (ICGQ) Open House learned about the Kodak FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System, which helps package printers, tradeshops, and brand owners create high impact packaging with improved print quality, while streamlining production and decreasing operating costs. Kodak helps packaging customers uncover new revenue and profit opportunities with flexographic solutions for the label, flexible packaging, and folding carton segments.

The event, held on April 27 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, featured live demonstrations of FLEXCEL NX Plates on press and two identical sessions with presentations from Kodak and other leading flexo solution suppliers. Kodak packaging experts were available at the event to consult and discuss packaging opportunities.

“The Kodak FLEXCEL NX System takes flexographic technology to new heights,” said Doug Weiss, Kodak Packaging Business Development Manager and presenter at the Open House. “Attendees saw how the unique characteristics of Kodak FLEXCEL NX Plates overcome many of the traditional flexo challenges, and help our customers be more successful.”

The award-winning Kodak FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System is a key element in Kodak’s flexographic product line, which addresses a variety of needs—from narrow to wide formats—in the very diverse package printing market. Regardless of the design or line screen, Kodak FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic Plates with InterTech Award-winning Kodak DIGICAP NX Screening enable higher print densities, better print contrast, and cleaner tones for a broad range of applications, while improving production efficiencies and helping reduce costs.

With premier package printing solutions, Kodak offers the broadest portfolio of products and services that enable customers to drive business growth through increased shelf impact and production efficiencies. For proofing needs, the Kodak APPROVAL NX Digital Color Imaging System provides a robust, proven option for packaging professionals. Optimized for the FLEXCEL NX System, it enables package printers to reduce time to market, save money on flexographic plates, and more accurately meet customer expectations with digital proofs matching color and imaging on press.

Leveraging the power of Kodak Unified Workflow Solutions, which include PRINERGY POWERPACK Workflow, INSITE Solutions and COLORFLOW Software, package printers have a robust, modular and scalable solution that can streamline production while reducing cost and improving efficiency.
