MPS Systems – Five label printing presses sold during Labelexpo Americas 2018
USA • The printing press manufacturer celebrates a new record of show sales at this year’s Labelexpo Americas. Sold were four hybrid EF SYMJET presses, the MPS hybrid solution developed in cooperation with Domino. MPS also celebrated a sale of their EF multi-substrate flexo press.
At the show in Chicago last month (25-27 September 2018) MPS demonstrated its hybrid EF Symjet press, its EF multi-substrate flexo press and was part of the first North American Automation Arena.
The debut of Automation Arena demonstrated a completely automated print shop of the future. A 45-minute live presentation featured two automated press lines for digital (label) and conventional (shrink sleeve) label production, from job creation through to pre-press, printing, finishing and invoicing.
The shrink sleeve portion of the conventional automated press line was printed on an MPS EF flexo press with 100% print automation on each print deck (for both sleeves as well as anilox positioning), and the MPS “talk to me” connectivity platform showcasing a truly automated flexo solution that is ready for Industry 4.0 implementation.
The lines during Labelexpo Americas 2018 were sold to:
- ASL Print and E-Z Stick Labels
- New York Labels & Box Works (EF Symjet)
- JMB Label (EF flexo)
- Prolabel ( EF Symjet)
The hybrid flexo-inkjet EF Symjet press demonstrated on the MPS stand during Labelexpo combines the MPS EF flexo platform with an integrated, well-proven Domino N610i inkjet engine allowing converters to combine flexo and digital printing as well as converting, all in one pass.
