Kodak has received two of the 10 overall 2015 InterTech™ Technology Awards for its KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses and newly-launched NX advantage for the KODAK FLEXCEL NX System. Since 1978, the Printing Industries of America (PIA) InterTech™ Technology Awards have honored the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related industries.
The KODAK PROSPER 6000 Presses and NX advantage for the KODAK FLEXCEL NX System were selected by an independent panel of judges based on their innovation and likelihood of advancing the performance of the graphic communications industry. Kodak far exceeded the printing industry’s expectations, emerging from this year’s competition as the only company to take home more than one award – a true testament to the priority Kodak’s R&D teams place on developing the industry’s most innovative and sustainable printing technologies.
These two 2015 InterTech™ Technology Awards mark Kodak’s 39th and 40th overall InterTech™ Technology Awards to date, including the third overall for the FLEXCEL NX System in seven years – representing a remarkable achievement that emphasizes Kodak’s longstanding legacy of delivering breakthrough, game-changing printing technologies. Kodak had previously received InterTech™ accolades for technologies such as NEXPRESS Red Fluorescing Dry Inks, PROSPER S10 Imprinting System and DIGICAP NX Screening. Kodak’s focus on innovation and commitment to delivering world-class, sustainable printing technologies to its customers has enabled Kodak to continue to outperform and outpace the competition, solidifying its position as a leader in commercial and packaging printing.
Kodak will be presented with its two InterTech™ Stars before an audience of industry leaders during the 2015 Printing Industries of America Premier Print Awards Gala on September 13, 2015 in Chicago. The Gala will be held as part of GRAPH EXPO 15, where Kodak will be demonstrating its innovative and sustainable technologies throughout the multi-day event at booth #823, located near the main entrance and registration area of McCormack Place (click here for interactive map).
