Push the boundaries for high-quality, direct print on corrugated
Setting new heights for corrugated print production, the unique capabilities of KODAK FLEXCEL NX technology enable full tonal reproduction, low dot gain, and robust on-press performance. Higher line screens are possible with existing press equipment, while excellent ink transfer and coverage minimizes fluting and increases visual impact, even on lower quality liner material.
Printers are using KODAK FLEXCEL NXC Plates to increase design freedom for brands on secondary packaging, offering a viable cost-effective alternative to pre-print or litho laminate. This is new territory for direct printing on board.
Miraclon customer Z Due cites environmental and cost benefits:
“Not only are its sustainability credentials strong — start-ups are faster, so there’s less wastage of substrate and ink — but the cost-savings are very attractive. For example, with Flexcel NX we can produce quality print even on lower-weight stocks — which is important given rising paper costs.” Andrew Mingozzi, Co-Owner, Z Due

Use flexo to meet litho laminate head on
For pre-print applications FLEXCEL NXH Plates offer the capability to provide brands with a trusted alternative to litho laminate. Miraclon customer Pulse Media harnessed the capability of their FLEXCEL NX System to put designs on to corrugated with impressive results:
“On the print date, as soon as the job was in-register, the client signed off the first press pull, which gave the added bonus of faster makeready.
“Overall, the flexo-printed version displayed improved register, better control of highlight dots, high solid density and improved print consistency — all over a large surface area and throughout the run. The result? The brand quickly moved three other designs to flexo from litho-laminate.” Simon Woods, Sales Director, Pulse Media
