Steve Green shows proof and final flexo printed packaging of a consumer product using the Kodak Approval proofing system and Flexcel NX imaged plates

We caught up with the top management of Kodak India a few days ago together with Kodak’s new Asia Pacific head Steve Green. Green who is familiar with India will be moving to Shanghai from Singapore and looking after a wide region. As he told us, his long day begins early with New Zealand and then he follows the Sun westward across the Asian continent as far as India and Pakistan.
As far as Kodak’s packaging thrust in South Asia, key personnel have been put in place. The complete range of Flexcel output devices rely on the Prinergy workflow and the Hyperflex resolution enhancement software to control relief depth and dot profiles. We are also aware that the Kodak Flexcel NX output plates have been tested with good results on both narrow and wide web flexo presses in India using pressure sensitive label stock and film substrates.
From our meeting with Green, we understood that Kodak is keen to show the effectiveness of its proofing and flexo printing systems for board, presenstised labels, and film packaging. Steve Green also spoke about the Kodak packaging technology demonstration centre for this region being established in Bangkok, Thailand, where a Flexcel NX has been installed at a customer site.
