Miraclon opens new markets for Miller Graphics with KODAK FLEXCEL NX


Miller Graphics, one of Europe's leading producers of flexographic printing products, has equipped its Beauvais site with a new large-format KODAK FLEXCEL NX device to meet the growing needs of its customers and allow the company to enter new markets.

The KODAK FLEXCEL NX process differs from those currently on the market by its plate imaging speed of 12m²/hour. Similarly, the unique Digicap software allows Miller Graphics to adapt the surface of each plate to match the specific parameters of different jobs and to optimise the efficiency and precision of ink transfer regardless of the media being used.

Creating new opportunities

The recent acquisition of a new large format CTP machine, installed at the Beauvais site, is enabling Miller Graphics to enter new market sectors, while also providing support to the company’s sites at Limoges and Avignon in France.

Philippe Coulonnier, Business Manager at Miller Graphics comments: “In addition to our traditional KODAK NX markets in flexible packaging and adhesive labels, the new equipment will allow us to produce much larger image options. It opens the door to new markets such as corrugated cardboard, post and preprint, while strengthening our position as a leading supplier to the flexographic sector. The packaging technologists and print partners that we work with are extremely impressed; both by the results we are obtaining in flexography and our commitment to take standards in print quality to ever higher levels.”

Pascal Monsieur concludes: “The results we’re delivering for our flexographic customers by using KODAK FLEXCEL NX technology and MMS are enabling us to compete effectively with other printing processes, including offset. With equivalent print quality and a lot more flexibility with shorter set-up times, our process has undeniable cost advantages, not to mention its lower environmental impact.”
