FLEXO: ‘Highest specification’ system in operation21 January 2010
CFN and Print Quest Graphics have formed a partnership which claims to be the ‘only company in Europe that boasts the highest specification of the new Kodak Flexcel NX Digital Flexographic System’.
CFN Packaging has an exclusive agreement with Print Quest, and all its high-definition process print work uses the pioneering Kodak system.
“It’s like the difference between ordinary TV and HD,” says David Jarvis, MD of Print Quest Graphics. “The NX is so far ahead of any other plate technology, it’s completely revolutionary. The quality of the reproduction is far better than any of the imaging devices currently offered by Kodak’s competitors.”
The system allows for high-quality printing on flexible products such as bags, labels, polyethylene, polypropylene and shrink wraps. It is said to overcome many of the limitations of both analogue and existing digital flexo plate technologies.
Capable of generating consistent dots as small as 10 micron, the Flexcel NX System is said to facilitate more accurate rendition of many designs that are not possible with other flexo systems.
“We are working in a niche market, and we are now able to offer something that the competition can’t match,” says Mr Jarvis.
CFN Packaging will be giving away samples of carrier bags manufactured using the Flexcel NX Digital Flexographic System at the Packaging Innovations exhibition, to be held in Birmingham, UK, in May.
