Macaran invests in Mark Andy P7 press

January 24, 2011

The New York converter has also acquired a Rotoflex VLI440 finishing system.

Macaran Printing Products, a label converter in Cohoes, NY, USA, has purchased a Mark Andy Performance Series P7 inline flexographic press. The company chose the Performance press to support its high-volume pressure sensitive and film output. The company is increasing its offerings to pharmaceutical and consumer goods marketers and is taking on more work with unsupported film and flexible packaging.

The combination hot air/UV, eight-color, 17” (430 mm) press includes a film package, multiple die stations, delam/relam, and rail-mounted web turnbar and constant tension laminator. The P7, scheduled for delivery in March complements the existing Mark Andy LP3000 purchased in 2007, currently being upgraded with screen capability.

In addition to the P7, the company has also invested in a Rotoflex VLI440 finishing system for inspection of film substrates. The unit is equipped with the recently launched Genesis advanced control system, providing increased accuracy and processing speeds. The system not only can identify defects within a stream of a single label or image shape, but independent lane configuration provides the converter the ability to run multiple sizes and shapes of labels on one roll, detecting defects regardless of label contour, size or color.
