Kodak FLEXCEL NX Customers win with the NX ADVANTAGE!

Packaging prepress providers and printers from around the world explain how Kodak technology helps them drive more efficient print operations than their competitors, deliver predictable, consistent ‘gold standard’ quality and open new opportunities outside the traditional capabilities of flexo printing. Has your company got the NX ADVANTAGE?

Kodak Set to Shift the Flexo Market Again!

FlexcelNXSystem16_600px

Launching the FLEXCEL NX System ’16 to further drive on-press efficiencies.

Chris Payne, Kodak’s General Manager of Flexographic Packaging Solutions writes:

“I’ve had numerous discussions with our FLEXCEL NX customers from all parts of the world to understand for myself why they choose Kodak technology. We have an install base of over 450 FLEXCEL NX Systems globally and a plate business that’s growing at more than 20% per year so I know we are doing something right – but what is our technology REALLY doing for our customers’ businesses? The discussions were fascinating and I came away with three key learnings, all of which have helped shape the latest FLEXCEL NX System which we’ll be launching at drupa this year;

• Our customers truly value the on-press efficiencies that FLEXCEL NX Plates drive
• Our customers have gained a reputation for delivering the ‘gold standard’ for print quality
• Our customers’ businesses are growing and are in investment mode

On-press efficiencies emerged as the primary reason that printers keep using FLEXCEL NX Plates on a daily basis. It may not have been why they tried them in the first place but it’s what keeps them coming back. Not a complete surprise. We did design them that way. But extremely interesting and gratifying to hear the magnitude of the impact they are having. I heard about;

• increases in press yield and therefore available press time (15-20% increase in productivity for some customers);
• extended plate life (50% longer for some customers)
• ink savings and reductions in substrate waste (15% savings for some customers);
to mention just a few.

It’s clear that for flexo printers to stay competitive and at the leading-edge of their field a flexo plate today must not only be capable of addressing the quality demands from their brand clients but also maximize the capital investment they have made, or are about to make, in the pressroom – and it’s inspired us to take the entire FLEXCEL NX Platform to the next level with FLEXCEL NX System ’16.

Included with FLEXCEL NX System ’16, which I recently announced to the global trade media at a pre-drupa Press Conference, is a set of advanced software features and on-site services developed to further maximize on-press efficiencies with FLEXCEL NX Plates while maintaining the Kodak ‘gold standard’ for print quality and consistency. We build upon the award-winning NX Advantage feature set and introduce brand new NX Implementation Services to help printers get the best out of Kodak plates in the pressroom and an associated Kodak Certification Program that will enable them to publicly promote their capabilities. I’ve found, almost universally, that business is booming for FLEXCEL NX Plate users. They are increasing their plant yields and investing in new presses – it’s a critical time to make sure they have the best tools and best practices to maximize their return on investment – and we are here to help.

Since we introduced the FLEXCEL NX System eight years ago at drupa 2008, we have continued to innovate and develop our advanced technology platform, scooping up on average a major industry innovation award every two years, and expanding the portfolio to address the needs of customers across the broadest range of flexo applications from wide web flexible to narrow web labels and everything in between. Most recently we have added the post-print corrugated segment to the list of markets we serve with the FLEXCEL NX System and at drupa we’re looking forward to sharing how FLEXCEL NX System ’16 and our FLEXCEL NXC Plate can bring unprecedented efficiency and quality benefits to corrugated box plants.

It’s only appropriate that we would launch FLEXCEL NX System ’16 at drupa, the largest print exhibition in the world. We have new technology and powerful performance data to share with visitors and what better forum than one where members of the global printing community congregate to unveil the latest products and technology.

At the Kodak stand we will be inviting printers that aren’t using FLEXCEL NX Plates today to take up the Kodak challenge and prove the efficiencies to themselves.

Stop by and visit the Kodak Quarter at drupa. My team and I will be ready to meet you there!”

• CLIENT SPECIFIC AUTO-INCLUDES: Save time and increase accuracy when estimating by automatically linking client specific labour, materials and outwork to individual clients.

• INACTIVE/DISCONTINUED MATERIALS: Reduce time to find materials by hiding old or out of date materials from new estimates and orders without deleting stock histories and activity.

Idealsolution first to demo CGS ORIS Flex Pack // Web to local market!

CGS ORIS Flex Pack // Web

Idealsolution are proud to be the first to demonstrate the CGS ORIS Flex Pack // Web packaging proofing and mock-up solution to the Australian packaging design and production sector.

Still using slow and expensive legacy systems for your packaging proofing needs? Then ORIS is your answer. Huge savings in consumables costs. And no dedicated operator required. ORIS Flex Pack // Web is bringing you uniquely web-based hard copy and soft proofing in one package.

At the heart of the application is the patented four-dimensional iterative colour management software which, combined with a specially designed custom interface for Roland VersaCAMM VS series printers, gives you the ultimate in production flexibility for halftone and continuous tone proofing.

All printer features, such as multi-pass and print-and-cut, are supported and the included Pantone colour libraries enable proofing of special colours, with the possibility of defining custom colours. Furthermore, ORIS Flex Pack // Web offers integrated soft proofing and proof certification. Available as an option is a connection to the Esko colour Engine spot colour library.

Roland VersaCAMM VS Series
The revolutionary eco-solvent printer is available in four different sizes from 30 – 64 inch. In addition to a white and metallic ink, it features Orange and Green, with the specially developed ORIS XG Inks, allowing the production of contract quality proofs and prototypes on substrates similar to the original stock, used in flexible packaging. The printer also includes a ‘Print & Cut’ function to produce adhesive labels and decals, fully supported by the software application.

ORIS Special Substrates
Not all substrates for eco-solvent printers are made equal. Most are low cost products designed for less demanding applications such as signage and posters. In an environment where colour accuracy and repeatability are essential, a high grade coating with a wide colour gamut is required. CGS has developed a wide range of ORIS specialty substrates, manufactured to the highest quality under extremely tight tolerances, guaranteed to bring you the best in packaging proofing. ORIS media even include an exclusive transfer film, serving as a mechanical primer for original stock, such as carton.

ORIS Special XG Inks
Unlike the standard inks, XG inks have been specifically formulated for proofing applications. The light inks (Lc, Lm) have been replaced with orange and green and the CMYK set has been completely redefined. As a result, the printable colour space is significantly larger, so that almost all Pantone colours can be reproduced accurately, a prerequisite for proofing high-quality packaging.

ORIS Turbo Heater
To ensure uniform drying and to prevent substrates sticking together, especially when printing small repeats, which are to be cut off immediately, CGS has developed an optional add-on dryer that easily fits to the output section of the VS printer.

Reverse or Surface Clear Film Proofing

Kodak Proofing Software Matchprint Inkjet can print in Reverse or Surface mode on clear film proofing media. Idealsolution recently ran tests comparing both print modes with white ink on on the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 white ink proofer. Using Kodak Matchprint Inkjet Clear Media 4 mil, spectrophotometer measurements were taken and a Kodak ColorFlow print comparison report was generated comparing the Reverse print mode to the Surface print mode. As indicated in the diagram below, Reverse print mode has greater ink density and a wider colour gamut than Surface print mode.

If you are after the best results for packaging mock-ups when printing with white ink on the WT7900 proofer using Kodak Matchprint Inkjet Clear Media 4 mil, it is recommended that proofs are produced using Reverse print mode.

ProPrint Review: Accura Print-MIS at Printworks Australia

ProPrint Review: Accura Print-MIS at Printworks Australia

Printworks Australia general manager Ben Freeman took a punt by installing the first of this brand in Australia and recently followed this by opting for the web-to-print module.

Ben states: “The Accura MIS handles our jobs from start to finish, from putting a client into the system to producing their quote and producing job specs, proof notes and delivery dockets and invoicing. The web-to-print module enables the client to get their own quotes, approved jobs, order jobs and find out where the job is in the system. They can do it from anywhere – they don’t have to be at their computer. I’ve got clients that do it from their iPads. The website has been developed to use on any platform. Out of my clients, I’ve got 40 active users that use it quite heavily.”
