Ziv-Av engineers Kodak’s FLEXCEL™ Direct System design
To deliver high-quality printing, Kodak wanted to achieve smooth, streamlined motion for its flagship FLEXCEL TM Direct. Kodak approached Ziv-Av in order to develop a new approach to printing, that would enhance movement mechanics and produce ideal prints for both printing and prepress service providers.
Ziv-Av designed the mechanics for Kodak’s FLEXCEL TM Direct System so that it would move as easily and evenly as possible, using a simple, two-step process. These mechanics would enable higher-resolution engraving, with greater laser power. Ziv-Av’s design solution, simultaneously cutting the production costs and energy expenditure, boosted efficiency as well as high print quality for the FLEXCEL TM Direct.
Ziv-Av’s cost-effective product helped boost operational efficiency and improve printing quality, ultimately changing the game for Kodak’s direct laser engraving capabilities. The mechanical design helped expand Kodak’s reach in the flexographic printing industry.
Ziv-Av’s design helped the FLEXCEL Direct System earn Kodak its third Intertech™ Award in the printing industry for its flexographic solutions.
Ziv-Av has been providing companies like Kodak, BigRep and Stratasys with complete, elegant and reliable solutions for 30 years.
