5 THINGS THAT KODAK’S THERMAL IMAGING LAYER (TIL) FILM TECHNOLOGY ENABLES

  • true 1:1 image reproduction from file to finished plate
  • the fastest digital flexo plate imaging in the industry
  • powerful NX Advantage technology
  • the total predictability and consistency for which
    Kodak plates have become known
  • the simplest flexo plate portfolio in the industry

SQUARESPOT IMAGING TECHNOLOGY

  • Unique imaging technology
  • Overcomes error limitations of Gaussian laser
  • Fastest imaging for flexo

WHAT’S DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL DIGITAL FLEXO?

  • Traditional digital flexo ctp imagers create a round Gaussian laser profile
  • With fiber lasers the energy tapers off towards the outer diameter
    • High power in middle
    • Low power at edges
  • Results in a Gaussian (soft / fuzzy) profile
  • Leads to variability in mask imaging
  • Round beam trying to match a square pixel
  • Beam has to be larger than the pixel to overlap for full coverage
  • Increasing resolution does not overcome these fundamental limitations

FLEXCEL NX SYSTEM SOLVES THE PROBLEM

  • The Trendsetter NX uses Kodak SQUAREspot Imaging Technology
  • The pixels start in the digital files as squares
  • Pixel-4-Pixel reproduction with even energy distribution maximizes consistency, eliminating conversion errors
    • 2,400 dpi resolution
    • Effective 10,000 dpi resolution
    • 10.6 micron dots and micro lines become a reality
