With a proven track record of enabling flexo conversions of offset and gravure designs. Innovative imaging technology delivers maximum value with a totally integrated solution that boosts shelf impact by improving ink laydown, expanding tonal range reproduction, increasing contrast and color vibrancy, and enabling finer reverse type and lines. This is done through the use of a select set of expertly-engineered surface patterns that dramatically improve ink transfer. More patented imaging technology enables dramatically cleaner print and increased contrast by controlling ink flow at the edge of objects. It offers a compact footprint, enhanced edge detection features for media handling and a streamlined installation process.

NX Ultra uses the same digitally exposed Thermal Imaging Layer as its Flexcel NX plates that have become a benchmark for quality flexo with their flat-top dots with engineered surfaces for good ink transfer. The system is due to be released first in North America in Q1 of The company is one of the global leaders in the gaming and lottery segment finds the Flexcel NX Ultra solution not only fast and clean, but also key to achieving its sustainability agenda Emma Schlotthauer, director marketing and communication at Kodak FPD, said that flexo has risen to industry-setting levels.
She said that product managers and packaging designers now revel in a higher level of design freedom that is new to flexo. The process is transforming a craft to a standardized and optimized manufacturing process on a par with all other processes. Brand owners stress and want packaging that is print process agnostic. The benefits that you get with the Flexcel NX Ultra are not measurable compared to the complexity of the process. The entire process is hassle and hazard free.
The IGT plant produces scratch lottery tickets on each of its more than unit mid-web Tresu and Gallus flexo presses. Rob Anderson and Hector Elias at IGT explained and showed the extremely specialized, high security and totally artefact-free printing operations at the plant. It is a good example of an easy upgrade where only the processing component needs to be changed to produce the same high quality plate as the Kodak Flexcel NX and where the NX Ultra process becomes as competitively quick as thermal systems while maintaining the quality of Flexcel NX—delivering a image transfer right from the digital file up to the robust press-ready plate.
The IGT beta site in Lakeland The added benefit for companies such as IGT which lists sustainability as one of its primary goals is the totally solvent-free processing of flexo plates that are not only of the best quality in terms of ink transfer and image contrast but can also be run on CI flexo presses with water-based inks that are increasingly becoming available. Our hosts at IGT said they were pleased at the results of the totally solvent-free, VOC-free, aqueous solution-based processing that delivers the first clean, consistent, press-ready plate in less than an hour.
After the first plate, NX Ultra system can produce subsequent plates at 18 to 20 minute intervals or 25 plates in an 8-hour shift. The operators of our flexo presses really appreciate the Kodak plates. They see the difference in the dots and how they print and how vignettes, our fine screens, how everything looks so much cleaner and essentially it has made their job much easier.
The NX Ultra product itself has been all that has been promised.
