Automated Print Control (APC) was the major attraction at the booth of MPS, the Dutch press manufacturer. The company exhibited its EC flexo press, a fully servo driven machine, at Labelexpo.
APC allows the operator to take advantage of automation to calibrate the press based on the type of substrate, the plate, the speed of the press, and more.
MPS says the press setup time and job changeover waste are reduced enormously. The new EC and EF presses are both label and film presses with standard short web paths and print sleeves. MPS also the EXL-packaging press with Crisp.Dot technology for the flexible packaging arena.
