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.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
