Athena Graphics has successfully completed the Miraclon Certification Program for FLEXCEL NX Plates. Designed to evaluate KODAK FLEXCEL NX System users’ ability to meet international standards, the certification program represents a feature set that drives industry-leading efficiency, repeatability, and quality in plate production. The certification process is also supported with comprehensive data measurement and analysis.
Marcel Weeren, Operations Manager of Athena Graphics Netherlands, says: “This certification confirms our ongoing commitment to provide consistently high-quality service and products to customers, while also serving as an added motivation for our internal team to continue their good work. For us, the certification benchmark is a minimum level of production standards that our highly trained team are always aiming to deliver even better on.”
He adds: “The two-way relationship and sharing of knowledge with Miraclon helps to optimize our production processes, especially during the certification auditing period. This is not a one-time exercise where we pull out all the stops, but rather an ongoing relationship to ensure our processes are always above industry standards.”
Recently the company in Veenendaal also invested in a Kodak NX Wide 50×80. With this purchase, Athena Graphics can further optimise its production processes, shorten lead times and provide customers with high-quality flexo plates that meet the strictest quality standards.
