German flexible packaging machinery manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher has moved its pre-press system, Kodak Flexcel NX Ultra, to the newly completed Technology Center in Lengerich, for quicker and easier accessibility.
The Flexcel NX Ultra is used at W&H for a broad range of applications, including platemaking for press demonstrations and printing tests, as well as customer events providing a solvent-free, and VOC-free option to predictable, consistent, and quality flexo plates.
‘We really value our partnership with the team at W&H, who share a similar vision about where the flexo industry is moving to,’ commented Grant Blewett, chief commercial officer at Miraclon. ‘Since the equipment has been installed in 2019, it has worked virtually uninterrupted for demonstrations and application development tests. We look forward to seeing more customers face-to-face again in the near future to showcase the capabilities of Flexcel NX on W&H’s state-of-the-art flexo presses.’
Ulrich Harte, W&H’s product manager, added: ‘Our 10,000 sqm Technology Center is the largest of its kind anywhere in the world, and it’s equipped with cutting-edge technologies. We can demonstrate the entire packaging printing value chain, including pre-press here in one place to existing and potential customers in a live atmosphere that is closely aligned to practical needs. The availability of innovative technologies like Miraclon’s Flexcel NX Ultra is crucial to our ability to present high-quality flexo packaging printing as an efficient end-to-end process.’
