MPS – Records at Labelexpo Americas 2016
USA • MPS demonstrated its flagship flexo press, the EF. This automated multi-substrate press was built in Green Bay, WI and thereflore can be seen as a reslt of the the company’s investment in a North American organization including local assembly, sales, marketing and customer service. According to Kees Nijenhuis, Vice President of MPS Systems North America, thanks to press automation and Crisp.Dot technology the EFR prints a 0.5-point micro text in flexo, runs shrink sleeves at 600 fpm (183 m/min) and offers perfect register while reducing the web tension in the press to almost zero.
At Labelexpo 2016, 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 colour job was produced by using four colours 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. Also demonstrated at the MPS booth was the Pass-Werk automatic plate mounter.
