USA • MPS Systems North America Inc. (MPS) announced it has sold an EF flexo press to Bizerba Label Solutions, part of the Bizerba Group, located in Joppa, MD. According to John Gomeau, president of Bizerba Label Solutions, the deciding factors for the purchase were the press’ operator friendliness, open design, and features such as Crisp.Dot and iControl, quick change die system and press automation.

The EF is an automated multi-substrate flexo press that offers a choice of either plate rolls or print sleeves, providing the ultimate in flexibility. It also features both UV and hot-air drying technology, allowing users to print on a variety of substrates including thin film, paper, cartonboard, shrink sleeves, inmould, lamitube and flexible packaging. The EF features MPS’ exclusive Crisp.Dot and iControl technologies. Crisp.Dot uses a rubber-coated counter-pressure roller to exert equalized pressure resulting in minimal dot gain. The result is that the print dot retains its round shape, the ink coverage is solid and small fonts are sharper. The iControl management and service operator/machine interface minimizes operator errors. Simple, intuitive and stress-free to operate, this technology enables the operator to choose and run individual functions via a touch screen and button, greatly simplifying machine control and operation.
