JPL buys its second MPS press

January 24, 2011

The French label converter will install the new EC press in its Rouen facility.

The JPL Group has selected a new EC printing press from MPS for its Rouen, France, facility. When delivered, the press will feature eight print stations with a web width of 410 mm (16”). JPL’s Rouen facility specializes in labeling for the agrochemical business, according to Plant Director Thierry Allouchery.

JPL’s General Manager Philippe Leyval says, “We selected MPS for our small and medium run lengths because our print runs tend to be very fragmented. JPL already owns an MPS press at 510 mm (20”) print width, and we are very happy with its performance. We have selected this new MPS press for its revolutionary, full servo motor integrated technology.”

The MPS flexo print technology includes a print and press automation system called Automated Print Control, which eases print settings and controls. When using the job memory software, repeat jobs have virtually no set up waste, according to MPS.

“The press is unique and perfect for short order work with its use of short web technology, cold UV driers, print sleeves and Crisp.Dot technology,” adds Leyval. “These techniques all come together to offer unparalleled print performance. Last but not least, the converting rail which supports the converting and added value technologies gives the optimal flexibility we need.”
