Flexcel NX Central Software by Miraclon can eliminate 90% of manual platemaking layout time


Miraclon is launching Kodak Flexcel NX Central Software, offering customers a step change in their flexo platemaking productivity. Enabling manual plate layout time savings of up to 90% and boosting plate utilization by up to 10%, this next generation software streamlines the platemaking process and seamlessly enables the integration of multiple advanced plate surface patterning features, designed to enhance print performance – including those delivered within FLEXCEL NX Print Suite for PureFlexo™ Printing – into one automated plate layout, enabling customers to complete more jobs in less time, at a lower cost.

The new automated plate layout process is optimized across the user’s portfolio of media sizes to maximize utilization, in turn increasing consistency and reducing errors by minimizing human touchpoints. Flexcel NX Central Software also allows for multiple users to remotely manage plate layouts, while its job tracking features enables more accurate billing and a comprehensive breakdown of production costs.

“Flexcel NX Central is designed to maximize the performance of Kodak Flexcel NX Technology and the efficiency benefits it brings to the pre-press and press rooms. It serves as the central hub for customers to interact with their Flexcel NX System”, tell Reid Chesterfield, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at Miraclon.

Flexcel NX Central Software is included with all new Flexcel NX System orders and is available as an upgrade for existing customers.
