Focus on flexographic print application needs

Veepee Art Studios, one of the premier prepress operations in South India recently added Kodak’s award-winning Flexcel NX System

Veepee Art Studios, one of the premier prepress operations in South India re-cently added Kodak’s award-winning Flexcel NX System. The family-owned business, in operation for over five decades, chose the Flexcel System as part of its continued focus on delivering outstanding quality to satisfy the evolv-ing flexographic print application needs of its customers

A combination of advanced plate surface patterning technology and advanced highlight imaging techniques, made possible by the unique nature of Kodak Squarespot Imaging Technology, is a significant step forward in print quality across all graphic elements of a package while simultaneously driving print production cost savings.

Veepee Art looks to expand its business by working across a variety of print applications like label printing, corrugation and board printing with the addition of the Flexcel system. The benefit for customers will be an exceptional quality of print using digital flexo technology that is comparable to gravure, without the limitations that come with analog and existing LAMS plates.

Veepee Art is combining the Kodak Flexcel NX System with Kodak Prinergy Workflow. The integration of Prinergy into their operation will help Veepee reduce production errors, enhance productivity, achieve outstanding flexibility, accept all popular file formats and manage proofing devices, digital printing machines and CtP devices directly. The software also ensures that the Veepee Art workflow process is custom-built to handle even the most complicated trapping and color requirements from its customers.

The Kodak Flexcel NX System was recently awarded for its innovation by the Printing Industries of America. An independent panel of judges selected the Kodak Flexcel NX System based on its innovation and likelihood of advancing the performance of the graphic communications industry. It was the third award for the Flexcel NX System in seven years.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
