MPS – Breaking records at Labelexpo Americas 2016
USA • MPS Systems North America announced that records have been broken at Labelexpo Americas 2016: a record number of visitors at the company’s stand as well as record North American sales at the show.
MPS demonstrated its flagship flexo press EF automated multi-substrate press which was built in Green Bay (WI). MPS invested heavily in a North American organization including local assembly, sales, marketing and customer service. After starting a local organization, MPS grew significantly in the North American market the past years.
MPS partnered with Kodak to demonstrate how flexo label printers can deliver a level of print quality and cost competitiveness that will enable them to compete head-on with digital, offset and gravure suppliers. During one of the demonstrations Kodak showed the “Do More with Four” technology: an eight color job was produced by using four colors only (CMYK), significantly reducing set-up waste and time.
In addition, EMT International and MPS introduced a new die cutting solution, combining quick change features with a robust design. This new modular die cutting solution for the narrow web market offers quick operator friendly die exchange in one minute or less without the need to use a hoist. Also demonstrated at the MPS booth was the Pass-Werk automatic plate mounter.
