KODAK has released its next generation version HYPERFLEX software, the resolution enhancement technology that allows packaging trade shops, printers and converters to produce smaller, more stable dots on flexographic plates and presswork.
Recipient of three industry awards for technical innovation, this new version of HYPERFLEX software is designed to improve AM highlights, delivering improved detail and smoother vignettes on all flexo packaging work.
The initial release of HYPERFLEX software in late 2003 was developed to complement Kodak MAXTONE hybrid screening software. The new version introduces the capability to apply HYPERFLEX technology to normal AM screening in addition to hybrid screening achieved with MAXTONE software.
The result is customers can use the technology 100% of the time, across all jobs and across multiple applications including flexible bag, direct print corrugated and high-end tag and label printing.
Kodak THERMOFLEX computer-to-plate devices are equipped with HYPERFLEX-Ready imaging to maximise the full potential of the technology. Flexographic trade shops, converters and label printers that have been beta testing the software and imaging plates on the THERMOFLEX devices are impressed with the results.
HYPERFLEX software is one of a series of advanced screening technologies for use with the Kodak PRINERGY, PRINERGY POWERPACK and PRINERGY Evo workflow systems.
Existing customers may upgrade free of charge to this new and improved version of the software.
To optimise quality and efficiency, one day of start-up assistance must be purchased for a Kodak flexo specialist to implement the software and provide on-site training and assistance.
