Elif, a Huhtamaki company focused on producing flexible packaging, has completed the Miraclon Certification Program for Flexcel NX Plates for its production sites in Cairo, Egypt and Istanbul, Turkey.
Designed to evaluate Kodak Flexcel NX system users’ ability to meet international standards, the certification program represents a feature set that drives industry-leading efficiency, repeatability, and consistent quality flexo plate production. The certification process is also supported by comprehensive data measurement and analysis.
The company, which installed its first in-house Flexcel NX system in 2018, boasts two production facilities in EAMER – one in Istanbul, Turkey, and another in Cairo, Egypt. The company chose a Flexcel NX System for each production facility and completed the certification at both sites.
‘Our customers expect only the highest quality flexible packaging, and we are driven to maximize efficiency while producing it,’ said Derek Peacock, design center director at Huhtamaki - Elif in Turkey. ‘Flexcel NX Plates are by far the best-in-class to deliver both the efficiency and quality we’re looking for. We are also continuously working with the Miraclon team to ensure we’re adopting best practices to maximize the benefits we achieve with the plates.
‘Our customers are very familiar with our quality benchmarks. Certifications, like being a Miraclon certified user, publicly underscore our stringent production processes, including data measurement and how we’re driving efficient production and high-quality flexible packaging print. It’s proof of our constant efforts to excel and achieve the highest standards in platemaking and flexo print production.’
