The Performance Series P5, the latest addition to press manufacturer Mark Andy's new flexo press line, is already surpassing company expectations. The model P5 was officially launched to the marketplace at Labelexpo Americas in September. Since then, 12 Performance Series P5 machines have already been sold to converters around the world including Indonesia, Venezuela, Sweden, France and the United States.
As part of the launch of the model P5 at Labelexpo, Mark Andy demonstrated the key features that allow an operator to set up and changeover four different print jobs in six minutes. According to Mark Andy, the machine's design "confirms a new reality about short run printing – digital is not the only solution to be considered to maintain a competitive advantage in today's market."
The Performance Series is capable of running jobs as short as 800 feet or 250 meters; as well as any longer run demands. Its print platform reduces tools and operator steps while maintaining high level of consistency, quality and repeatability.
"This new Performance Series is a game changer. Not only for Mark Andy, but for the converters who aim to remain competitive today and into the future," says Jeff Feltz, director of product management for Mark Andy.
The next and final model of the Performance Series line, the P3,will make its debut in December at Labelexpo India, in Delhi December 8-11.
Mark Andy is headquartered in St. Louis, MO, USA.
