Miraclon, on 7 June 2021, announced the launch of the new Kodak TIFF Assembler Plus (TAP 5.0) Flexo Edition Version 5.0 software. The latest version of the TAP enables Kodak Flexcel NX System users to simplify their operations and ensure continuous production. In addition, tap 5.0 is available to current Flexcel Solutions customers to download, at no cost, immediately.
TAP 5.0, available in 11 languages – including Chinese and Japanese-has specifically been designed to allow more configurations and robust usage and supports the latest operating systems, including Windows 10, Windows Server 2019, and macOS Big Sur (11.2), and macOS Catalina (10.15). In addition, new cutting table enhancements boost the quality, speed, and reliability of the process across a wide range of cutting tables. At the same time, its Invert Trim Waste feature, which automatically inverts the non-imaged areas of the plate, will reduce plate processing costs through fewer photopolymer washouts, less chance of re-deposits, and lower solvent spend.
Building on its already strong reliability, TAP 5.0 also features improvements to customers’ connected support experience, enabling more accurate scheduling of preventive maintenance and practical on-site and remote support or training. Meanwhile, back-ups of TAP 5.0 will now occur automatically in the background to minimize disruption if any problem arises.
Joerg Kullwitz, Commercial Director for Miraclon’s Asia Pacific Region, comments, “Our R&D Team, with their rich heritage in innovation, are continuously looking at ways that will enable customers to streamline their daily operations. Tap 5.0 will enhance the efficiency, reliability, and ease of use of our Kodak Flexcel NX Solutions to allow our customers to concentrate on the effective management and growth of their businesses.”
