Kirk Group Invests In Kodak Flexcel NX Software

Kirk Group, a provider of graphic arts services and image carriers in Australia and New Zealand, has acquired Kodak Flexcel NX Central Software, a new automated plate layout technology from Miraclon.

Kirk Group was founded in 1972, initially to provide artwork services and gravure cylinder engraving. The company moved into flexo in the 1980s and 1990s and today has four manufacturing sites in Australia and New Zealand in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Auckland, and, since 2020, a presence in Mumbai, India. 

Flexcel NX Central Software is Kirk’s third recent investment in Miraclon technology, following the November installation of a Kodak Flexcel NX Ultra Solution and investing in the Flexcel NX Print Suite for flexible packaging to access PureFlexo Printing Technology before that. 

All investments align with the company’s systems and technology-driven innovation policy, which add enhanced capabilities to Kirk’s offering, according to the company, such as more efficient plate utilization, sustainable plate processing, and press efficiency.

Flexcel NX Central Software automates all plate production, including the automatic application of multiple advanced plate surface patterning features.
