Argentine prepress bureau ges 100th KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System

Press release from the issuing company

Rochester, N.Y. - In just over two years on the market, the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System has been helping flexo printers around the world improve quality, enhance productivity, and achieve consistency. Now, Bosisio of Buenos Aires, Argentina will enjoy those benefits as it installs the 100th global system.

Bosisio is a leading Argentinean prepress bureau specializing in design, brand management, file preparation, and manufacture of flexographic plates and gravure cylinders for Latin American markets. Bosisio, which represents many international brand owners, is part of the global Janoschka group. The company offers file preparation services, and manufactures flexo plates and gravure cylinders for production of packaging products for regional and global clients.

"We are committed to using leading-edge solutions and helping our clients stand out in the market with packaging that stands out on the shelf and drives sales," said Omar Bosisio, President. "Package quality plays a critical role in the success of brand owners and package printers, and the FLEXCEL NX System will allow us to maintain that quality in the most demanding environments."

Steadily increasing in the number of installations throughout 2010, the FLEXCEL NX System gives printers greater consistency, repeatability, productivity and sustainability. At the same time, the system gives brand owners greater density of print, tonal range, and contrast, in a consistent and repeatable manner, resulting in greater shelf impact.

The integrated FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System enables offset class, gravure quality results and improved productivity for flexographic printing applications including tags and labels, folding cartons, and flexible packages.
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. The FLEXCEL NX Plates require less makeready time and are highly durable, allowing for longer runs and increased productivity.

"Throughout 2010, the packaging industry has recognized the FLEXCEL NX System as a leading technology that provides unique shelf impact and productivity benefits for brand owners and their printers," noted Oscar Planas, Vice President, Marketing, Prepress Solutions, Kodak. "This broad acceptance has allowed the FLEXCEL NX System base of installations to more than triple already through 2010."

Earlier this year, Kodak won a 2010 InterTech Technology Award from the Printing Industries of America-the highest honor for innovation in the graphic communications industry-for KODAK DIGICAP NX Screening. Used with the FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System, DIGICAP NX Screening applies a micro fine surface texturization pattern to the printing surface of the FLEXCEL NX Plate to improve ink transfer efficiency during flexographic printing, especially when printing on films.  To see more, visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3AahOr7Cu8.

Kodak offers the broadest portfolio of products and services, including flexographic solutions that enable customers to drive business growth through increased shelf impact and production efficiencies.
