Print service providers in Europe now have easier access to market-leading flexographic printing and platemaking technology thanks to a distribution agreement between Kodak and Jet Europe. The new strategic alliance will see Jet Europe sell KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic Systems, including hardware and consumables.
Jet Europe was appointed by Kodak because of its strong position in the flexographic market across the continent. The company has a presence in almost every European country, and offers a comprehensive range of flexographic products.
The KODAK FLEXCEL NX System represents the latest in digital flexo platemaking technology, enabling on-press efficiency and unprecedented print quality for flexographic printers. It combines superior imaging technology and materials science to produce outstanding results, helping print service providers to differentiate themselves from their competitors. KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic Plates are designed to minimize waste and maximize efficiency in the press room while delivering results that rival offset and rotogravure print quality.
The plates are compatible with water, solvent and UV inks and are suitable for a wide variety of applications including flexible pouches, bags, labels, cartons and envelopes, with excellent ink transfer and image reproduction on both paper and film based substrates. In addition, KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates help flexographic printers achieve their sustainability goals by improving production efficiency, reducing ink and substrate waste and reducing their overall consumption of photopolymer plates. .
Harry Heesen, Managing Director, Jet Europe, comments on the partnership: “Our flexo printing customers are continually striving to achieve consistently top-quality results, while at the same time reduce waste and manufacturing costs. When preparing flexo plates, three factors have been proven to help achieve these goals – 1:1:1 image reproduction from file to mask to plate; flat top dot technology; and surface pattern innovations that enhance ink transfer from plate to substrate. KODAK FLEXCEL NX System technology excels in these three areas.
“Partnering with an industry-leading company like Kodak is a huge boost to our flexographic portfolio, and ensures our customers continue to have fast access to the latest packaging print innovations.”
Grant Blewett, Sales Manager Packaging, Kodak, says: “Jet Europe is the ideal distributor for our FLEXCEL NX Systems. The company has an excellent reputation in the flexographic market across the continent. The partnership puts us in immediate reach of packaging printers in the region, who are set to enjoy significant commercial and environmental benefits afforded by FLEXCEL NX System technology.”
