One of these newly developed technologies is Mark Andy’s Performance Series. The key technology in the Performance Series press is the newly developed print station/print deck design. With this advancement, the Performance Series measurably changes the output and performance of flexographic printing. The printing platform, redesigned with a focus on streamlined productivity, substantially alters traditional on-press workflow, resulting in measurable material and ink waste savings and greater ease of use for the operator.
A 4-color setup on a Performance Series press can be completed in two minutes and a single station sets up in under 30 seconds. A minimal amount of ink is required for production runs (6 oz.) and a newly introduced makeready process can reduce material waste by up to 50 percent. The press has been designed for ease of use for any operator skill level, with a load-and-lock inking system, self-positioning doctor blades, push-button controls and open access to the entire print deck and plate roll.
