Press release from the issuing company

Rochester, NY - Splash Graphics, Inc., a premier premedia and graphics company located in Willowbrook, IL, has invested in a KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System to expand its business into printing plate production for flexographic printing. The integrated FLEXCEL NX System enables offset class, gravure quality results and improved productivity for flexographic printing applications including tags and labels, folding cartons, and flexible packages.

"We are always looking for ways to stand out and improve the level of quality we provide to brand owners and printers," said Dhiren Sanghani, Principal, Splash Graphics. "With the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates we can help our customers achieve the same high-quality work as gravure and offset from a flexographic printing process while improving production efficiencies and reducing costs."

The new FLEXCEL NX System allows Splash Graphics, Inc.-which provides prepress services to printers, advertising agencies and brand owners-to expand its capabilities, provide customers with increased options and diversify its business.

"Many view the dot as minutia, but Splash Graphics recognizes that it is the dot that is the key ingredient in fine printing," Sanghani said.

Splash Graphics strives to bring technology that offers significant improvement to their customers. The FLEXCEL NX System does just that-along with a dependable, efficient and quality run operation has allowed Splash Graphics to be a leader in this area.

The FLEXCEL NX System produces plates that use an innovative flat-top dot structure with a minimum dot size as small as 10 microns, providing consistent quality and repeatability on press. FLEXCEL NX Plates require less makeready time and are highly durable, allowing for longer runs and increased productivity.

"The FLEXCEL NX System is a complete solution for digital plate making designed to dramatically enhance the quality and efficiency of flexographic printing, giving packaging printers and brand owners a competitive edge," said Oscar Planas, Vice President, Marketing, Prepress Solutions, Kodak. "This improvement in flexographic plate making consistency, productivity and print quality delivers packaging that stands out in the marketplace."

The FLEXCEL NX System was named as the sole recipient of the 2009 Flexographic Technical Association Technical Innovation Award. It also received the 2008 PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award and the Flexographic Pre-Press Platemakers Association Technology Innovator of the Year Award.
