Kodak presented its new hybrid option for its Trendsetter NX Imager for the first time in North America. The option allows it to image either Flexcel NX digital flexo plates or traditional offset plates. The dual functionality allows label and packaging printers to compete in the offset printing arena without having to invest in a separate piece of imaging equipment, the company said.
Kodak’s Prinergy Powerpack system offers new features, including a PDF file editor, which allows users to employ the capabilities of Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Photoshop CS3 to modify PDF files. The Packaging Layout Automation feature allows for packaging production layouts to be dynamically created using a combination of the Rules Based Automation technology and the Kodak Pandora Step-and-Repeat software imposition engine.
