MPS rolls out new sleeve offset press

September 29, 2011

A wider flexo version of the new press is available for packaging printing and converting.

MPS showed its new EXL offset press to the label industry at Labelexpo Europe this week, which uses sleeves for the plate and blanket carrier. The fully automated press, with ink trains based on a Goebel design, has automatic inking and variable sleeves, and is available in 16” and 20” widths. All of the servo press settings are in job memory, allowing the print job to be run via a USB drive, an iPad or other remote device. The press on display also included a flexo station mounted on rails above the offset units, allowing for application of flexo varnish at any point in the print run. “We embrace offset technology and take out the disadvantages,” said Eric Hoendervangers, managing director of MPS.

EXL-Packaging press is a wider flexo version of the EXL. It is built up to 26” wide and operates at a speed of 300 m/m. A dedicated inking system has been developed with an ink chill option. The EXL-Packaging variant comes with Automated Print Control as a standard together with iControl and job memory. High speed hot air driers for both solvent based inks as well as water based inks are available.

The EF is a multi-substrate press that controls material compensation by servo positioning technology. Complete print settings are automated and can be stored in job memory. The flexo press is built in various web widths, including 20”. A multiple range of converting models is available, as well as different inking systems.
