Miraclon says flexo is evolving into a sustainable standardised printing method where it can be print by numbers, with elimination of the variables in the platemaking process.

The company will launch a new Flexcel NX plate, and a new NX Ultra plate, and the Flexcel NX Ultra 42 Processor water washable plate technology. Building on the success of the Flexcel NX Ultra 35 processor for narrow-web applications, the new Flexcel NX Ultra 42 Processor is a high-volume, low maintenance plate production environment. Miraclon says its water washable plates offer the same benefits as its solvent processed plates, and are part of the transition to modern flexo.

The company will also launch Shine LED Lamp Kits, which it says are a "simple and cost-effective" path to UV LED plate exposure, that makes an even more consistent flexo plate. There will also be a preview of next generation Flexcel NX Plate and Flexcel NX Ultra Plate Technologies with LED optimised plate technology that offers what Miraclon says is cleaner printing for greater efficiency and sustainability benefits.

Also on the stand will be real life case studies of 12 printers that have met challenging brand client needs and achieved "dramatic financial and sustainability goals" after successfully implementing Flexcel NX technology, aided by the technical expertise of Miraclon and its prepress partners.
