Focus on flexographic print application needs

Veepee adds Kodak’s Flexcel NX System

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 Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
