The Debut of New Technology Proved to be a Large Attraction to Labelexpo Attendees
St. Louis, MO - Mark Andy reports a successful Labelexpo Europe 2019, garnering 20 press agreements on the show floor, 10 flexo and 10 digital.
Attendees had the opportunity to be the first globally to witness new innovations from the OEM company. Live demonstrations were conducted daily on the brand new Evolution Series and Digital Pro 3 with semi-rotary, as well as the single source hybrid press, Digital Series HD.
Evolution Series, an entry-level full servo flexo press, debuted to captivated crowds interested in learning more about its capabilities and scalable options. Demonstrations of the press were well-attended during the four-day event, with a highlight being the minimal waste challenge wagered during the changeover.
Two models of the Digital Pro line made their global debut at Labelexpo. On Mark Andy’s traditional stand was Digital Pro 3 with semi rotary diecutting. The upgradeable roll-to-roll model, Digital Pro 1, was represented on their second booth in the Digital Hall.
Digital Series HD made its Labelexpo Europe debut, and also announced extended format sizing of 17 inches (430 mm) as a better solution to the high demand for digital hybrid shrink production. Mark Andy simultaneously announced the introduction of Stitch AI, automated print head redundancy technology designed to minimize press downtime and maximize quality material throughput.
In addition to the flexo and digital label and packaging presses on-stand, this year’s showings also included inspection, rewind and finishing equipment from Rotoflex as well as an interactive 26 inch (660 mm) Performance Series P9E automation print station exhibit and a VPM plate mounter provided by Mark Andy Print Products.
