Kodak extends Flexcel for corrugated

Kodak has released a version of its Flexcel NX system that’s suitable for printing to corrugated substrates. This includes a new 5080 system, which according to Kodak’s press release, is “a newly designed imaging platform and laminator that enables plate making in formats up to 50 x 80ins (1270 x 2032mm)”

But, as is normal with recent Kodak press releases, there isn’t any further information on this system, other than that it uses the SquareSpot laser imaging that Kodak gained when it took over Creo. Hopefully, someone at Kodak will eventually respond to my earlier request for more details about this.

There are two new plates to accompany this system: NXC plates should offer improved ink coverage, reduced fluting, improved highlight reproduction and cost-effective on-press performance; NXH plates allow for long plate life, and photo-realistic print reproduction.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
