Trisoft Graphics, Inc., Selects KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System for Outstanding Print Quality
Rochester, NY -- Trisoft Graphics, Inc., a digital prepress and graphic design company serving the packaging industry since 1993, recently installed a KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System to more effectively meet the quality demands of its diverse customer base. Trisoft Graphics is headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., with a branch office in Makati City, Philippines, and does much of its business for label printers and the packaging industry.
Trisoft Graphics currently has a KODAK THERMOFLEX Narrow Platesetter and plans to use both systems simultaneously. The company’s new FLEXCEL NX System includes a KODAK TRENDSETTER NX Mid Imager and KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic Plates.
“We’ve been testing the plates produced by the FLEXCEL NX,” noted Tristan Zafra, Owner of Trisoft Graphics. “During these blind tests, we processed very complex and demanding jobs, and the FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic Plates repeatedly produced excellent results from a variety of presses, and from multiple customers. The ability to easily use these plates on any press adds flexibility and productivity, and we are confident that currently there’s nothing that can match the quality of the FLEXCEL NX as far as plate and print quality.”
Trisoft Graphics prides itself on innovation and always looks at new technologies to position itself for the future. With this new solution the company will be among the first to make flexo plates that rival the quality of offset and gravure printing. In 2003, Trisoft Graphics was the first service provider on the West Coast to implement a THERMOFLEX Platesetter. In 2004, it was the first service provider on the West Coast to implement thermal processing for its plate processor. With the installation of this FLEXCEL NX System, the company is once again leading the way on the West Coast.
Because solvent is used to process the FLEXCEL NX Plates, safety was a concern. “Like all California customers, environmental issues are high on Trisoft’s priority list,” explained John Anderson, Flexo Plates Product Manager, Americas, Kodak’s Graphic Communications Group. “But the latest developments in solvent washout solutions mean that users can get the performance they have come to expect from solvent processed plates while effectively managing their workplace environmental issues. In reality, our flexo customers can make positive environmental contributions by using fewer plates. The unprecedented stability and predictability in both platemaking and printing that is enabled by the FLEXCEL NX System combines for longer plate life, fewer remakes, and less plate and press waste.”
Winner of the 2008 PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award and the Flexographic Pre-Press Platemakers Association (FPPA) Technology Innovator of the Year Award, the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Digital Flexographic System provides previously unachievable offset class, gravure quality printing on a wide variety of substrates—including paper, flexible film, foil, paperboard and label stock. The FLEXCEL NX System helps ensure stability and repeatability, both in prepress and on press.
