Renovations at the Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H) Technology Center in Lengerich, Germany, has been completed and included moving their in-house prepress technology – a Kodak Flexcel NX Ultra Solution from Miraclon – to a brand-new plate room for quicker and easier accessibility.

Providing a fast and solvent-free, and VOC-free option to predictable, consistent, and top-quality flexographic plates, the Flexcel NX Ultra Solution is used at W&H for a broad range of applications, including plate-making for press demonstrations and printing tests, as well as customer events.

“We really value our partnership with the team at W&H, who shares a similar vision about where the flexo industry is moving to,” says 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 Solutions on W&H’s state-of-the-art flexo presses,” Blewett added.

Ulrich Harte, W&H Product Management, adds: “Our 10,000 square-meter 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 prepress 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 Solution is crucial to our ability to present high-quality flexo packaging printing as an efficient end-to-end process,” Harte added.


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.
