Mark Andy Performance presses selling well in first year

July 19, 2010

The Performance Series, to be exhibited at Labelexpo Americas, will be expanded later in the year at a trade show in India.

Mark Andy, the US manufacturer of narrow web presses, reports sales of more than 30 of its Performance Series presses, which were launched 10 months ago. The company, based in St. Louis, MO, says that the presses have been sold worldwide, including Australia, China, Ireland, England, Sweden, Poland, and Venezuela. A sale in South Africa is pending. Eighteen have been installed in the US, running such applications as wine labels, light cartons and packaging, RFID insertions, and unsupported films.

The two top models, P5 and P7 of the Performance Series press line, will be on display at Labelexpo Americas 2010, taking place September 14-16 in Chicago, IL, USA. Mark Andy plans to further expand the line later this year, introducing the model P3 at Labelexpo India.

The flexo press has a highly accessible printhead design, and the company says that a four-color changeover can be completed in three minutes. It also features repeatable settings and limited operator steps for job setup, according to Mark Andy.

“The Performance Series marks a milestone for the Mark Andy brand,” says Mark Andy CEO Paul Brauss. “Our in-depth customer research has resulted in a press design that has proven to meet the true needs of the customer. Our product development team hit the mark, and I’m very excited for converters. They have a great new product to take advantage of.”
