Flexo plate, versatility defined. Bringing transformational flexo to corrugated board.

FLEXCEL NXH Plates

FLEXCEL NXH Plates are the definition of versatility. Create high-quality print on a variety of substrates. Unparalleled shelf impact  with less complexity and downtime on press.

Happy transferring ink to films, foils, paper, shrink films, pressure-sensitive labels, envelopes and liners, you can use KODAK NX Advantage technology at the heart of the KODAK FLEXCEL NX System to customize FLEXCEL NXH Plate production for different applications.

The versatility of FLEXCEL NXH Plates extends to your choice of ink: water-based, solvent-based, UV-cured and cationic inks.

FLEXCEL NXC Plates

Designed for direct print applications on boards with a variety of liner and flute types, and with water-based inks, FLEXCEL NXC Plates can take on a diverse array of graphic challenges from simple line and tone designs through to complex process colour artwork.

Users benefit from more impactful graphic reproduction with less complexity and downtime on press. The standout performance of FLEXCEL NXC Plates comes from the combination of our Thermal Imaging Layer, high resolution imaging technology and patented lamination process: the combination enables high-resolution imagery on the plate, with 1:1 dot replication, and stable, predictable ink transfer.

FLEXCEL NXC Plates come as a kit, together with equal quantities of KODAK FLEXCEL NX Thermal Imaging Layer. All the elements you need to create the visual impact and high-quality finish to set you apart from the competition.

Speed and ease of use

FLEXCEL NXH Plates offer wide exposure latitude with short drying times, necessary to meet your demanding print quality requirements and production schedules.  In addition, our durable plates are easy to mount, are resistant to wear and abrasion, and come up to color quickly on press, so you realize increased consistency, productivity and enhanced print quality.

 
Miraclon FLEXCEL NXC Plates

Key Features

Exceptional quality and performance

FLEXCEL NXC Plates are high-quality, lower durometer flexographic plates that provide full tonal reproduction, low dot gain, and robust on-press performance. Higher line screens are possible with existing press equipment, and excellent ink transfer and coverage minimizes fluting and increases visual impact, even on lower quality liner materials.

Maximum versatility

FLEXCEL NXC Plates are designed to print with water-based inks on post-print board with a wide variety of liner and flute types. They are suitable for a broad range of graphic reproduction requirements from simple line and tone work, to complex full process color content.

Speed and ease of use

FLEXCEL NXC Plates offer wide exposure latitude with efficient drying times, necessary to meet your demanding print quality requirements and production schedules. In addition, the plates are easy to mount and are highly resistant to ozone, wear and abrasion, so you realize increased consistency, productivity and enhanced print quality.
