Miraclon Drives the Transformation of Flexo with Innovation and Collaboration at Labelexpo Europe 2019

Press release from the issuing company

Visitors to the Miraclon stand (B461) at Labelexpo Europe, the new home of KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions, are seeing how the company is using its rich heritage in flexo to drive the transformation of flexographic printing with continued innovation and collaboration.

Officially launching its next-generation KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution in Europe, plate makers now have a way to enable the same on-press benefits as the flagship KODAK FLEXCEL NX System, with a solution that offers solvent-free, VOC-free water-based processing and a plate that’s press-ready in less than an hour. Enabled by patented KODAK Ultra Clean technology, it is the first aqueous solution that delivers consistent, high-performing flexo plates in a high volume, low maintenance environment.

With collaboration at the core of Miraclon’s company values, visitors to the stand are also learning how Miraclon is working with printers, pre-press service providers and FMCG brands around the world to transform the capabilities of flexo printing. Delivering real time-to-market, cost and sustainability benefits for global packaging supply chains, KODAK FLEXCEL NX Technology is proving to be a key enabler for the industry to adopt flexo as a true viable alternative to gravure and offset printing.

Miraclon CEO, Chris Payne, comments: “We’re a brand-new company building on a sector-leading legacy to fully focus on the future of flexo. Our flexo plate technology provides a proven core platform for improving quality and production efficiencies for our customers, driving bottom-line benefits and opportunities for business growth. We’re proud to have the collaborations, innovative imaging science and industry insight we developed at Kodak to our name, and we’re excited to put it into action, working with our customers and industry partners to push the boundaries of what flexo can achieve. Visitors to Labelexpo Europe should not miss out on a chance to see how our expertise and technology can help them transform their business.”

Live demonstrations of Miraclon’s KODAK FLEXCEL NX imaging technology and the new KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Processing System are taking place on the stand throughout the day, while visitors can also view KODAK FLEXCEL NX solutions in action on the Omet (6C49), MPS (11C20) and tesa (11A26) stands.
