DIDAM, THE NETHERLANDS | MPS will participate with its distributor Jebsen Industrial in China Print International (http://www.chinaprint.com.cn/index_en.jsp) Printing Technology Exhibition held May 14–18 in Beijing.
Company says there is increasing demand for cost-effective flexo and rotary offset printing machines from the Chinese market. According to MPS area sales manager Eric Blomjous, “Automation in press control is the future for label and packaging printing in China. In addition to extensive flexibility and capability, the Chinese packaging market requires effective solutions for optimized (brand) color accuracy, brightness, and sharp details.
The MPS product line to be presented at China Print consists of three press models: the EF multi-substrate press, available in three different levels of automation; the EXL-offset machine with variable sleeves for different repeat lengths; and the EXL-packaging press for wide web flexible package printing.
Automated Print Control (APC), company’s multi-purpose tool for print management, allows preprogramming of print pressure, which is required for ideal ink transfer and minimal dot gain. The APC-gap control functionality additionally allows preprogramming of material thickness. All settings are stored and recalled for repeat jobs. Reportedly, APC allows operators to function at similar skill levels while giving management full control over how much they can independently affect the job process parameters.
