Kodak flexs its print with Flexcel NX System
Revamped Kodak Flexcel NX System offers greater print flexibility.
Kodak first introduced the Flexcel NX System in 2007 and later relaunched it last year with updates to the media, the lamination process and imaging technology using the latest square spot equipment.
According to Darren Yeates, Kodak packaging segment expert, the system is suited to anyone involved in flexible packaging who wants the highest quality flexographic print.
“With the Flexcel NX System, the same high quality images can be predictably and consistently reproduced on a flexible pouch, carton, label or other stock, delivering maximum shelf impact and preserving brand integrity,” he said.

Yeates believes that the Flexcel NX System’s strength is its ability to use offset separations for flexo reproduction. “It eliminates the need for retouching specific flexo output and achieves a full tonal range,” he said.
There are no Flexcel NX Systems currently operating in Australia, though Kodak is running trials to see where the system will be the most suitable. Yeates hopes that after the system goes on display at next month’s PacPrint, interest will grow.
“We are hoping to have some additional trials after this,” he said.
