Kodak system boosts print quality

Russian print house Delta-Pack has boosted its flexo plate production quality with a Kodak Flexcel NX System.

Russian print house Delta-Pack has boosted its flexo plate production quality with a Kodak Flexcel NX System. The investment has helped strengthen the company’s position in the flexible packaging market and secured work with large food manufacturing clients.

"We were pleasantly surprised with the Flexcel NX Plates," explains director of development Roman Viktorovich Doroshevsky. "There were no colour differences between the start and the end of the first print run. After a while, we launched the print run from the same plates for the second time, and again the results were good. So I checked four print runs of about 30,000 each, but still found no differences."

The Rossosh-based company’s clients were also very impressed when they were shown some samples. "Some colleagues who saw our 175lpi resolution output couldn’t believe it was flexographic printing," explains Doroshevsky. "They thought we were showing them gravure printing."

Delta-Pack, which in 2012 received ISO 9001 certification, also uses Kodak’s Prinergy Powerpack Workflow with automatic trapping and imposition modules, as well as the Insite Prepress Portal System, which allows clients to coordinate their orders via the internet.
