Our ambition to offer the highest quality yet sustainable flexo plate making led to the investment in Kodak's new technology. In doing so, Köstlin is leading the way for a more responsible and efficient value chain in prepress services.
The water-based innovation of KODAK Flexcel NX Ultra enables particularly efficient production of high-quality flexo plates. An integrated, solvent- and VOC-free standard for flexo plate production has been created. The well-known KODAK NX quality has been further developed with this system and decisively optimized in terms of handling, sustainability and efficiency.
A decisive advantage is the aspect of Sustainabilitywhich is realized with this innovative solution. Because with the KODAK Flexcel NX Ultra, the solvent consumption at Köstlin is specifically reduced and produced in a more environmentally friendly way. The known influencing factors and limitations of typical solvent processing are also significantly reduced.
High-quality flexographic printing clichés can be produced with the new technology at a previously unattainable speed and stability. In terms of on-time delivery and variability, this has a decisive positive influence on production at Köstlin.
This enables us to focus on and pursue extensive efficiency enhancement with sustainable responsibility.
