Mark Andy Surpasses 50 Years with Performance Series Press Sales

ST. LOUIS, MO | Mark Andy, a global leader in narrow-web press manufacturing, has announced the sale of its 60th Performance Series press. The Performance Series took off after its initial launch at Labelexpo Europe 2009 and has been making an impact on the industry since, the company reports.

"Converters are searching for ways to improve their productivity, reduce waste and streamline their workflow. With the addition of Performance Series machinery to their facility, they are realizing these goals," states Jeff Feltz, director of product management, Mark Andy Inc.

Some of the most compelling evidence to the productivity and profitability of this product line is the significant acceptance received by the converters who have implemented the technology. Select converters have replaced multiple machines with a single Performance Series and five globally successful converters have purchased multiple Performance Series presses, with commitments to future investments already planned.

The Performance Series press line consists of three models ranging in capability and cost. The P3 is at the introductory level. Driven by a precision-engineered direct drive train, the P3 is designed specifically for conventional label production. Mark Andy is proud to have sold two of these presses since being introduced to the market at Labelexpo India in December, 2010. The first was an investment for Color Label, a division of Mulligan Printing, based out of St. Louis, Missouri. A second P3 has been sold into South Africa, signifying global interest in the most recent model of the popular platform.

The P5 model is a servo-driven machine, providing further machine control and productivity. Making its big splash at Labelexpo Americas last September, the machine proves that flexo makes a strong argument against digital for short run label production.

The P7 is the most advanced model of the series. With dual servo controls and a fully-automated registration system, the P7 is the flagship of narrow-web printing.
