Print Quest Graphics Expands Production and Wins New Business with Kodak’s Innovative Digital Flexo Solution
LA HULPE, BELGIUM, Nov. 20—Print Quest, a UK-based leading print plate supplier to label and packaging converters, has bolstered its production capacity by investing in the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System. The integrated system comprises the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Thermal Imaging Layer, a KODAK TRENDSETTER NX Imager, a KODAK FLEXCEL NX Laminator and the KODAK PRINERGY Workflow System.
Meeting customer demand
Print Quest believes the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System will help ensure the company continues to deliver the excellent results its customers demand. “We’re seeing results with the Kodak system that we believe demonstrate it is ahead of the LAMS systems in wide use today, where exposure to the atmosphere is still a problem,” says David Jarvis, Managing Director at Print Quest.
A key aspect of the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System occurs during the lamination, which ensures close contact between the layer and the plate, eliminating any oxygen. This results in a stable flat-topped dot, which is much sharper and cleaner on the plate.
