Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 11 -- Cincinnati Precision Plate, Inc., a maker of digital flexo plates for the package printing industry, has improved productivity since installing a KODAK THERMOFLEX Mid platesetter in early July. The new equipment has increased the speed and efficiency of the plate making process, preventing jobs from getting backed up in production, a problem Cincinnati Precision Plate experienced with its old device. "We wanted to stay ahead by providing the latest technology and cutting edge equipment for the prepress and plate making industry," said Jim Edwards, Operations Manager at Cincinnati Precision Plate. "With the new THERMOFLEX Mid platesetter, we're able to turn plates around much faster than we did with the old equipment. The new system delivers impressive throughput at up to three to four plates per hour compared to our old solution that produced only one plate per hour." The THERMOFLEX Mid platesetter boasts industry leading technologies, such as KODAK HYPERFLEX Ready imaging technology for flexo to deliver high impact, repeatable print results. Edwards credits the THERMOFLEX platesetter for the newly added ability to image different dot structures and dot spaces. The resolution enhancement technology helps the prepress shop produce smaller, more stable dots on flexographic plates. "We've been very pleased with the purchasing process through our longtime vendor Anderson Vreeland and the installation," added Edwards. "The THERMOFLEX platesetter has done exactly what it has promised from a speed and function standpoint. The added efficiency we achieve with the THERMOFLEX platesetter is value that we're able to pass on to our customers." Established in 1978, Cincinnati Precision Plate, Inc., specializes in prepress for the package printing industry. As a full service mid size trade shop, Cincinnati Precision Plate provides plates and film for labels, cartons, flexible packaging and preprint liner board primarily for flexo printers. KODAK products are backed by KODAK Service and Support, Kodak's worldwide service organization. Named Best Support Organization at the 2006 International Business Awards, KODAK Service and Support includes more than 3,000 professionals in 120 countries. These professionals are fully qualified to help customers control costs, maximize productivity, and minimize business risk.
