The FC Group has been supplying Kodak's NX CtP, workflow and flexo plates and supporting Kodak’s Flexcel Solutions – a technology that has transformed Flexo printing and galvanized the industry since 2008, in West Africa. We've now been charted by Miraclon, the new independent home of KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions to focus on the East African markets including Kenya, Ethiopia, The Congo and Tanzania. We would like to invite our customers, pre-press specialists, printers and brands to join us in Transforming Flexo Together at LABELEXPO EUROPE 2019 on 24th-27th September in Brussels. Learn more>>

The FC Group joins Miraclon – the new home of KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions – to welcome visitors for the first time as an independent company at a major international trade fair. At Booth 4B61, designed to reflect the company’s innovative vitality and new-found agility, the Miraclon team and Partners will demonstrate their commitment to driving the transformation of flexographic printing forward with continued innovation and collaboration.

The official European launch of the KODAK FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution will provide plate makers with another way of producing a high-performance KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plate. Delivering the same on-press benefits as the flagship KODAK FLEXCEL NXH Plate, the ground-breaking FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution offers solvent-free, VOC-free, water-based processing that allows printers to create a press-ready plate in less than an hour. Enabled by patented KODAK Ultra Clean technology, developed by the Miraclon team, the FLEXCEL NX Ultra Solution is the first aqueous solution that provides consistent, high-performing flexo plates in a high volume, low maintenance environment.

“The technology is truly innovative,” commented Hal McLenon, Product Marketing Director at Miraclon, “and it’s been extremely rewarding to see how fast our beta sites have converted print production from their incumbent thermally-processed plates to FLEXCEL NX Ultra Plates. We’re excited to have it on the show floor and ready to provide printers in Europe with another option for achieving the outstanding print performance for which FLEXCEL NX Plates have become well known.”

Driven by a collective goal to expanding the reach of flexo, visitors to the booth will also learn how Miraclon is teaming up with users and industry partners to leverage KODAK FLEXCEL NX technology as a key enabler for industry change. Examples of customer-led innovation provide evidence of more efficient print production workflows and sustainable solutions that position flexo as a truly viable alternative to gravure and offset production for even the most demanding print buyers.

“As a global player that is totally focused on the future of flexo, we’re looking forward to sharing our vision and presenting our innovative KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions at Labelexpo Europe,” says Miraclon CEO Chris Payne. “Most importantly, though, we see Labelexpo as an invaluable opportunity to listen and learn. Our work is all about relationships. Only by collaborating closely with our customers every step of the way, can we predict the challenges they’ll face and create the solutions they need to resolve them. Our job is to continually challenge ourselves by asking ‘What’s Next?’ ”

KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions have helped transform flexographic printing over the last decade. Now brought to life by Miraclon, KODAK FLEXCEL Solutions – including the industry-leading FLEXCEL NX System – give customers higher quality, improved cost efficiency, better productivity and best-in-class results. With a focus on pioneering image science, innovation, and collaboration with industry partners and customers, Miraclon is committed to the future of flexo and is positioned to lead the charge.
