MPS Systems North America is demonstrating two future-ready presses for the narrow web industry on booth 911: a fully-automated EF flexo press at the Automation Arena, and the EF SYMJET digital/flexo hybrid solution.
Fully-automated flexo press with connectivity
In the Automation Arena, MPS will demonstrate the EF-APC advanced machine with 100% print automation, for both sleeves as well as anilox positioning. A valuable feature of this automated flexo solution is the MPS ‘talk to me’ connectivity technology, for Industry 4.0 implementation.
Introduced to the market last year at Labelexpo Europe, ‘talk to me’ is a protocol for exchanging data between Management Information Systems (MIS) and MPS printing presses as well as to pre- and post-press systems, to digitally supply set-up variables to the machines. This technology also provides real-time information from the machines, required for companies to be truly productive and remain competitive.
The key to future profitability: hybrid printing
Featured on the MPS booth will be the MPS EF SYMJET hybrid flexo/inkjet solution. This innovative press combines the stability of the MPS EF flexo platform with the integrated well-proven Domino N610i inkjet engine, allowing converters to combine flexo and digital printing as well as converting, all in one pass.
